Welcome! On behalf of the Province of Prince Edward Island, I invite you to join us for a once in a generation celebration in 2014 as we mark the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference. In 1864 the Fathers of Confederation met at Province House to discuss the formation of Canada. That meeting began the process that saw this great country come together. During the summer of 2014, we have events and activities planned from one end of the Island to the other. There will be concerts, public art displays, theatre productions, historical reenactments and dozens of other events and activities that will make Prince Edward Island the place to be for visitors in 2014. Add that to our world-class beaches, stunning coastal vistas, tremendous local cuisine and renowned golf courses and the Island becomes a must for any potential traveler. So join us in 2014. Come to the Island, stay for the party.

Prince Edward Island is a truly unique destination for visitors. Our coastline offers some of the best beaches and scenic coastal vistas in the world. Our rolling green hills will keep your cameras busy. Our tremendous local cuisine, including some of the freshest seafood available anywhere will make your mouth water for more. And if golf’s your game, Prince Edward Island has courses to suit all skill levels, including several courses regularly listed among the best in Canada. Add all that to our famous Island hospitality and you get a vacation destination like no other. And in 2014 it will be even better. With over 150 events and activities planned to commemorate the Charlottetown Conference of 1864 we will give visitors an experience that will reinvigorate their knowledge of history and the role our province played in the creation of this great country. Be sure to come visit us in 2014. It will be a year to remember.

Hon. Robert Ghiz Premier of Prince Edward Island

FESTIVALS, EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES PLANNED!

What is the 150th anniversary? 2014 will mark the 150th anniversary of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference which gave life to the idea of Canadian Confederation. Reason to celebrate? We think so! Prince Edward Island is planning an unforgettable 150th anniversary year that will celebrate and commemorate the beginnings of this great nation! More than 150 festivals, events and activities across the Island in 2014 will remind us that when people gather here, great things happen. All Canadians and visitors from around the world are invited to the celebrations!

PEI has long been the place to be on Canada Day, but in 2014 with topnotch Canadian artists performing and one of the largest fireworks displays in the country, the commemoration of our nation’s birth will be bigger and more spectacular than ever. This is a unique opportunity to celebrate Canada’s birthday in the province where it all began! Step back in time during Founders Week, August 28 - September 7, as the Tall Ships sail into port, docking in both Charlottetown and Summerside. Take a tour of these majestic ships of old, and watch the stunning Parade of Sail as the vessels make their way into the harbour. The week also features a world-class concert and fireworks. Enjoy a retrospective of a wonderful celebration year as we bring the PEI 2014 celebrations to a close on New Year’s Eve in Summerside. Join us for the PEI 2014 Finale as we look back and pay tribute to a celebration 150 years in the making. On September 1, 1864, the meeting that led to the birth of Canada convened in Charlottetown. For the next week, in the meeting rooms and at social activities, 23 leaders who became known as the Fathers of Confederation debated the merits of political union. On September 8 the Charlottetown Conference concluded and the concept of Canada was born! Visit www.tourismpei.com/2014.

Islandness

There’s no other place like Prince Edward Island. Here are a few ideas for exploring this unique island: ONE • You can find over 50 lighthouses, of all shapes and sizes, scattered across Prince Edward Island. TWO • Explore PEI National Park. You can experience the dunes and cliffs by car– or better yet, by bike or foot. THREE • The Island is famous for its food. From freshly-caught lobster, mussels and oysters to newly-dug potatoes. FOUR • Prince Edward Island Culinary Adventures take food enthusiasts on a chefdriven experiential food journey across the Island. FIVE • Find incredible vistas with rich reds, vivid greens and deep blues while touring our three coastal drives.

Northumberland Ferries Whether you approach PEI by land, sea, or air, you’ll feel a strange excitement begin to stir as you wonder, “What will it be like there?” No guarantees, of course, except that your heart rate will slow, your smiles will last longer, and you’ll sometimes forget where you left your shoes.

Visitors’ Tips

What is it? There’s something special about an island. Naturally separated and self-contained, it’s disconnected from the rest of the world – but only in the most alluring ways. Rhythm, for one thing. Prince Edward Island will draw you into its comfortable, relaxed pace. Freed from the stresses of your regular routine, you’ll soon find yourself living on Island Time, with too many unforgettable things to do, yet no pressure to do them. Personal interaction, for another. Just as the surrounding waters carve and mold the land, our people will shape your experience. A trip to PEI goes beyond the jagged red cliffs, peaceful sandy beaches, and rolling green hills. It’s more than impossibly-fresh seafood, creative artisans, and world-class golf. It’s all of those things, and something a little harder to identify. As you board our boats, tour our studios, and visit our homes, you’ll realize that you’ve also been welcomed into our hearts. And that’s what will keep pulling you back for yet another taste of life here, another sampling of our unique islandness. You’ll be glad you came, and so will we. Visit tourismpei.com/the-island.

When the earliest Scottish settlers arrived on Prince Edward Island in the eighteenth century, they had no time to think about golf, a game their ancestors helped invent. Nor could they have imagined that PEI would one day become Canada’s most popular golf destination. But pros and amateurs from all over North America have been enjoying our courses for years. And now the rest of the world is starting to take notice. Was it our breathtaking scenery, the quality and variety of our courses, or the value and convenience of playing here? All of the above, and more. Whether you’re a beginner, a regular player, or dreaming of turning professional, you’ll find just the right course, and fees lower than you might expect. And remember, PEI is Canada’s smallest province, so you’re never far from beaches, restaurants, theatre, or any of our 32 stunning courses. Traveling in a large group or planning a convention? No Problem! Our golf facilities are able to accommodate your needs. We’re sure that no matter where you’ve played before, your favourite round of golf is waiting for you somewhere on Prince Edward Island. Visit www.tourismpei.com/pei-golf.

Green Gables Golf Course

Visitors’ Tips

You can’t play all our courses in one trip, so you’ll just have to come back!

THREE • Challenge yourself on each of Mill River Golf Course’s 18 unique holes. FOUR • The Stanhope Golf & Country Club is a superb course with stunning views.

CULINARY Time to eat! There are many advantages to a small island,

Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or fine dining, the right meal is right here. ONE • Order the seafood– the lobster, mussels and oysters can’t get any fresher! TWO • Find the most succulent lobster, fresh rolls, potato salad and local produce at a traditional PEI Lobster Supper. THREE • The Fall Flavours Festival in September features celebrity guest chefs and a wide range of unique culinary experiences. FOUR • Everyone loves our ice cream. Try one of 60 delicious ice-cream flavours at Jewell’s Country Market dairy bar. FIVE • Potatoes, yes potatoes! The PEI potato has a unique flavour because of our rich red soil.

Roadside stand There’s no better way to inspire envy among your friends back home than to tell them you dined on the freshest possible PEI shellfish. But if you’re looking to really impress them, discuss the distinction between Malpeques and Raspberry Points, or between Colville Bays and Lucky Limes. These and other “boutique” oyster brands can be enjoyed at many of our local restaurants and pubs, along with scallops, clams, and world-famous Island mussels. See more about food on page 45

Visitors’ Tips

especially this one. The land here is rich and our waters teem with fish, as well as lobster, oysters, and other shellfish. Ask almost anyone in the world where the best mussels come from, and they’ll tell you: Prince Edward Island. And because the distance between any two points on the Island is small, food doesn’t have to travel far from source to plate. Our farmers and fishers provide the ingredients and our award-winning chefs turn those fresh ingredients into culinary masterpieces. But it’s about more than a meal. We also have food experiences and events. Culinary Boot Camps bring you into state-of-the-art kitchens, where you’ll prepare and enjoy your own creations (culinarybootcamps.com). Or explore The Culinary Trail, an Island-wide series of itineraries complete with guidebook and map (www.peiflavours.ca). Try a traditional PEI Lobster Supper for a unique dining experience. This fall, don’t miss the PEI International Shellfish Festival, and more than 75 other events at the annual Fall Flavours Festival (www.fallflavours.ca). As we said, it’s about more than a meal. It’s about local and fresh, traditional and innovative. And it’s about time to eat!

Beaches Where sea meets shore.

Choosing a beach presents a challenge when you’re on an island surrounded by them. Here are a few ideas: ONE • Cabot Beach Provincial Park. Stroll from your campsite to the beach. TWO • Cavendish Beach in PEI National Park. Very popular family beach close to Cavendish attractions. THREE • At low tide explore the warm tidal pools at Argyle Shore. FOUR • The many beaches from Brackley to Dalvay in PEI National Park. FIVE • Reward yourself with a relaxing walk along the Basin Head beach to Bothwell beach. Look for starfish and listen for the Singing Sands.

Cedar Dunes Provincial Park Protected by the Northumberland Strait, the south shore tends to have the warmest water and reddish sand. The north shore faces the Gulf of St. Lawrence, with rolling surf and white sand. Over on the eastern shore there’s even a beach with singing sand! Be beach safe, see page 54.

Visitors’ Tips

PEI and beaches. They’re practically synonyms. When visitors think of Prince Edward Island, many immediately imagine the smooth warm sand, red sandstone cliffs, soft blue sky, and the white-capped waves of the surrounding seas. We have eleven hundred kilometres of shoreline, much of it in the form of pristine beaches. It’s what English, French, Scottish, and Irish settlers first saw when they arrived here centuries ago. And often, it’s still the first place visitors head when they arrive today. Whether you prefer napping in the sun, splashing in the water, building a sandcastle, enjoying a leisurely stroll, or capturing that unforgettable sunset, there’s a beach that’s perfect for it. This Island is filled with many wonders – scenic beauty, cultural richness, diverse history, and a welcoming spirit. Wrapped around it all are those beaches. They are the boundary of Prince Edward Island, and what separates us from the rest of the world. Visit www.tourismpei.com/pei-beaches.

People visit Prince Edward Island looking for unique experiences, and that certainly applies to the artwork and crafts created here. If it’s something specific you’re after, you’ll likely find it being made somewhere on the Island. Our skilled craftspeople are busy year-round, producing one-of-a-kind treasures you simply won’t find anywhere else. Our mills have woven creations made from the wool of their very own sheep and alpaca; the assortment of sweaters, mittens, hats, scarves, blankets, and rugs is breathtaking. Pottery studios display and sell decorative and functional items. Seasoned woodworkers are turning cups and bowls, and producing carved masterpieces, even as you read this. Stained glass, wrought iron, handmade soaps? It’s all here. Painting, sculpture, photography, prints? How much time do you have? Watch the artisans as they work. Tour their workshops. Take a PEI Studio Tour (www.peistudios.ca). Or sign up for an Authentic PEI Experience (see page 82) and try your hand at creating your own unique reminder of this one-of-a-kind place.

Island Traditions When you buy a souvenir, you’re purchasing a reminder of the place you visited. When you acquire something from a skilled artisan, you’re taking home a real part of the place – its history, culture, and people. The number of artists producing masterful works of creativity here is startling. Each is waiting to share a piece of their beautiful Island. Visit tourismpei.com/pei-arts-crafts.

Visitors’ Tips

You can find the perfect take-home memory, or try a hands-on craft project. ONE • Gateway Village in Borden-Carleton promises a unique experience as you savour Island food products and shop from local artisans. TWO • The PEI Preserve Company in New Glasgow has everything from Celtic family tartan blankets to locally-made pottery and jewellery (and preserves!) THREE • The Dunes Studio Gallery in Brackley (pictured above) – fine Canadian art plus items from around the world. FOUR • Visit Spinnakers’ Landing in Summerside to check out hand-made jewellery at Celtic Mist and MaiYa Pearls.

Visitors’ Tips

As young children, we lived to play. Having fun was our job and we were good at it. Then we grew up, and play became recreation – hiking, camping, sailing. All great activities, but there’s still that child inside of us who just wants to play. Prince Edward Island is the perfect place for family vacations because it’s easy to find the right balance. Birdwatching and nature walks? Of course. But we also have bumper boats, waterslides, and go-karts. When was the last time you went horseback riding? Have you ever taken a ride on a mini-train? We have paintballing, laser tag, and even hot air balloon rides. Do you remember the excitement when you were about to board your first ferris wheel or roller coaster? You can relive that magic at one of several amusement parks. Finish your day with a round of mini-golf or an evening at the drive-in theatre. Recreation? There’s plenty of time for that tomorrow. Today, let’s be kids again. Let’s just play. Visit www.tourismpei.com/pei-activities.

Endless discovery. Even while the warm summer sun on Prince Edward Island lulls visitors to our slower pace, the cool ocean breezes beckon them to explore. In the process, families rediscover how to relax as one, and how to grow as individuals. Where do they find such gifts? Over every hill or on the other side of every dune, or aboard a lobster fishing boat that’s gently tossed by the sea. In museums that celebrate our nation’s history or a culture’s rich traditions. Immersed in the magical world of Anne of Green Gables™. Building masterpieces of sand on a secluded beach, or climbing the stairs of a lighthouse and feeling the silent awe pull you together as you catch that first glimpse of the view from the top. Learning how to shuck oysters, or harvest potatoes, or prepare a gourmet meal. These are just a few of the countless ways our guests discover our Island, our way of life, and most important, each other. It’s all here, waiting to be explored. What unexpected and priceless gifts will your family take home from their trip to Prince Edward Island? Visit www.tourismpei.com/pei-family-fun.

Visitors’ Tips

Family fun is found on the Island from tip to tip! ONE • Climb to the top of East Point Lighthouse. The view is magnificent, and more than worth the effort. TWO • The Bottle Houses in Cap-Egmont feature life-size buildings made of 25,000 bottles! THREE • Spinnakers’ Landing is well known for shopping. But you can also stroll the boardwalk along the water’s edge, wave to the sailboats and watch the sunset. FOUR • Have a unique family picture done at Grandpa’s Antique Photo. FIVE • Sandspit Amusement Park in Cavendish features a roller coaster, ferris wheel, and more than 15 other carnival favourites.

“It doesn’t matter what we do, as long as we do it together!” On PEI, there’s no need for such carefully worded declarations. Whether you’re pushing yourselves to the limit or taking it slow, feeding your stomachs or devouring the scenery, you’ll be glad you’re doing it here. And, yes, very glad you’re doing it together.

Visitors’ Tips

Island is like a rope made of intertwined strands. Each of those strands can be traced back to its roots: First Nations, French, English, Irish, and Scottish. Archeologists have found evidence of early Mi’kmaq settlements that date back thousands of years. Be sure to visit the Lennox Island Mi’kmaq Cultural Centre, as well as the annual Abegweit Pow Wow in August, to learn more about PEI’s aboriginal heritage. The earliest European settlers began arriving in the sixteenth century, and their influence is still evident in the names found on mailboxes, as well as the prevalence of Acadian and Celtic music and dance. A trip to The Acadian Museum in Miscouche will introduce you to the tumultuous history of the French pioneers. Then relive the birth of Canadian Confederation and all its drama by touring Province House National Historic Site, where you’ll see and hear how the new nation began to take shape in Charlottetown in 1864. And 2014 marks the 150th anniversary of that Charlottetown Conference. From mega Canada Day festivities, a summer-long Celebration Zone, to Founders Week, we have over 150 events planned to celebrate. See more on www.pei2014.ca.

MUSEUMs Step back in time.

There is a lot to see, hear and learn at PEI museums. ONE • When you spot the biggest potato you’ve ever seen, you’re at the Canadian Potato Museum in O’Leary. You can’t miss it! TWO • The Anne of Green Gables Museum at Park Corner is dedicated to the life and works of author Lucy Maud Montgomery.

Visitors’ Tips

Wherever you wander on PEI, you’re retracing the steps of long-ago people. How far back do you want to go? Although the Acadians settled here in the early 1700s, the British, French, Irish and Scottish were all playing major roles two centuries earlier. But even they might be considered newcomers: by the time the Europeans arrived, the Mi’kmaq had already been here for thousands of years. Want to become absorbed in these and other stories? Begin in our provincial and community museums. At the Acadian Museum, experience 300 years of struggle and survival. At the Green Park Shipbuilding Museum and Yeo House, relive the glory days of that once-booming industry. At the newly-renovated Canadian Potato Museum, take a farm tour and walk the same fields our forefathers did. From one corner of PEI to the other, you’ll find hidden gems, such as the Garden of the Gulf Museum, Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Birthplace, and Beaconsfield Historic House. Whether you’re interested in planes, trains, or automobiles, one-room schoolhouses or elegant mansions, Mi’kmaq culture or the silver fox industry, we have a museum that brings our history to life.

Well, maybe not all of it, but if you love live theatre in any of its many forms, prepare to be enthralled. Our varied venues for the performing arts run the spectrum, from world-famous blockbuster to best-kept-secret status, and everything in between. If it’s musical theatre you’re after, Anne of Green Gables– The Musical™ will have you singing and dancing for days. This year the Charlottetown Festival also includes Canada ROCKS! and Searching for Abegweit: The Songs & Stories of Lennie Gallant. But the Confederation Centre of the Arts is also home to a wide range of shows, including concerts, dance recitals, drama, and comedy. The nearby Cabaret-style theatre The Mack provides top-notch entertainment in a more intimate setting. Also look for Anne & Gilbert – The Musical, in its 7th year, now playing in Charlottetown. Want to be close enough to hear the actors breathing? Visit the Victoria Playhouse in Victoria-by-the-Sea, Watermark Theatre in North Rustico, St. Peters Courthouse Theatre in St. Peters, The Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside or the King’s Playhouse in Georgetown. Maybe we weren’t exaggerating: all the Island is a stage. Visit www.tourismpei.com/theatres.

Visitors’ Tips

Look for theatre across the Island, onstage and in some unexpected places: ONE • The Kings Playhouse in Georgetown has been performing for over 120 years – making it one of Canada’s longest running theatres. TWO • The Charlottetown Festival showcases professional musical theatre, comedy and drama. THREE • Anne & Gilbert –The Musical is the story of Anne of Green Gables – in love! FOUR • Arrive early before the show to enjoy the licensed terrace at Watermark Theatre. FIVE • The Victoria Playhouse has live theatre and concerts in an intimate setting.

Confederation Centre of the Arts The word “theatre” means different things to different people. For some, it has to include a play, presented in three acts. Others favour a tap-dancing spectacle, with a live orchestra, and performers belting out memorable tunes. Comedy? Stories about modern life? The classics? Whatever your preference, it’s all here. Enjoy the show!

Visitors’ Tips

Walk in our shoes. Most vacation spots are places to visit. You take some nice pictures and buy a few souvenirs. On Prince Edward Island, you’ll find a unique way of life that you can casually observe. Or you can take part in it. From North Cape to East Point and everywhere in between, chefs, artisans, musicians, farmers, fishers, and a host of others are waiting to share their stories, and help you experience the life of an Islander. Imagine catching and cooking your own lobster. Forging a piece of folk art from recycled metal. Weaving a family keepsake, learning an Acadian step dance, or dabbling in watercolour paint. There’s even a whole series of Culinary Boot Camps devoted to helping you prepare and enjoy your own food masterpiece. We call them Authentic PEI Experiences and we’re pretty sure you’ll want to come back and do them again. On Prince Edward Island, we like when people pay us a visit. But we love it when they walk in our shoes, and take home a little piece of our lives, too. Visit www.tourismpei.com/pei-experiences.

Green Gables Heritage Place

The story is fiction, but Anne couldn’t be more real.


ANNE Lucy Maud’s Island. When the novel Anne of Green Gables was first published in 1908, most people could only dream of visiting its magical setting. As the book became popular around the world, it’s likely that many readers had no idea where Prince Edward Island was. They may have even wondered, “Is it a real place?” Today, millions of the book’s fans have made the trip to PEI and discovered the land that captivated Anne in Lucy Maud Montgomery’s stories. And for those who just can’t get enough of their favourite redheaded girl, or the woman who created her, there are Anne-related attractions all over the Island. First, of course, is Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™, Canada’s longest running musical. In Cavendish, you’ll find Green Gables Heritage Place, Avonlea Village, and Montgomery’s Homestead, where the writer’s descendants still live. Lower Bedeque is home to the schoolhouse where the author taught, and in July there’s the L.M. Montgomery Festival. If you love Anne, you too will feel right at home on her Island. Visit www.tourismpei.com/anne-of-green-gables.

OUTDOORs

Here are some specific ideas for stretching your legs – and arms! ONE • Try a walking trail: Bubbling Springs in Dalvay; Macphail Woods in Orwell; and Black Marsh Trail at North Cape to name a few. TWO • Cycle from Mount Stewart to St. Peters on the Confederation Trail. Enjoy the views of St. Peters Bay. THREE • Go camping! End the day with a campfire at sunset. FOUR • Try a horseback ride through a beautiful wooded trail or along the north shore. FIVE • PEI has over 5000 hidden geocaches that will lead you to historic sites, scenic lookouts, or local secrets off the beaten path.

Confederation Trail, St. Peters Whether your home base is a hotel, bed & breakfast, cottage, or campsite, you can keep your feet on solid ground while your spirit pursues fun and adventure. Enjoy a round of laser tag or mini-golf, race around a go-kart track, or take in a night of harness racing. Birdwatchers are in luck: we have more than 300 species. And be sure to visit our provincial parks–each is unique, and a great place to be outdoors. Visit www.tourismpei.com/pei-adventure. See more about trails on page 61

Visitors’ Tips

Take it outside! People here always seem to be heading outside. Maybe that’s because there’s so much to do out there. But before you can settle on a specific activity, you have to answer the more general question: land or sea? This is a cyclist’s paradise, with trails and pathways that have terrain changing at every turn. Our rolling hills and gorgeous scenery are perfect for any fitness level or interest, and will get your heart racing, one way or another. Bikers, walkers, and runners alike love the Confederation Trail’s 357 kilometres (221 miles) of rolled stone-dust surface. Many also pack a GPS, because it’s the largest geocache power trail in the world, with more than 1,800 caches, and climbing (the Island has more than five thousand). For hikers, there’s plenty of wilderness to explore, both inland and along the rocky shore. Of course, you’ll find golf, horseback riding, paintballing, and guided tours. And be sure to get a close-up look at the other-worldly beauty of shifting sand dunes–boardwalks will take you right over them– or hunt for polished glass and other treasures on our stunning beaches. Which brings us, inevitably, to the sea...

Immerse yourself! If you love being in, on, or just near the water, Prince Edward Island is the place to be. Our countless bays, coves, and inlets make this the ideal setting for canoeing, kayaking, and boating of all kinds. We have deep-sea and freshwater fishing, with guided and charter services available. Short cruises will take you out for an afternoon of sun and salt air, where you may spot seals napping on the rocks, and eagles soaring overhead. If it’s a traditional trip to the beach you’re after, ours are pristine and uncrowded, with sand that’s smooth and clean, and water that’s warmer than any north of the Carolinas –great for swimming, snorkeling, or just floating the time away. If you’d like to ride both the waves and the wind, try parasailing or kiteboarding. But no matter how you spend your day, the perfect ending is a night in one of our many campgrounds, where fresh air and the sounds of the sea will lull you to a well-earned sleep. Be sure to get plenty of rest though: the great outdoors will be calling for you again tomorrow.

Visitors’ Tips

Here are a few ideas for dipping into the wonders of our watery world. ONE • Learn the ropes on a sailboat charter, or just relax and enjoy the warm, calm seas along the south shore. TWO • Become a lobster fisherman! Join the fishing crew on Top Notch Charters and experience lobster fishing first hand. THREE • Go fish. Catch a trout at a stocked lake, or test your skill (or luck) on a deep-sea fishing excursion. FOUR • Learn to kayak! Tours are available whether you’re a beginner or an experienced paddler. FIVE • Beachcombing is a popular and relaxing activity for all ages.

Kiteboarding, Malpeque On any island, the sea beckons from all directions. The pull is even stronger on PEI, because its slender shape means you’re never more than a few minutes from the surf. And with a thousand kilometres of jagged coastline, there’s room for pretty much any water sport you can think of. You’re sure to discover an ocean of possibilities.

LIGHTHOUSes

Nine of Prince Edward Island’s lighthouses are open to the public–why not follow our Lighthouse Lover’s Tour? ONE • The North Cape Lighthouse on the Island’s northwestern tip is dwarfed by nearby windmills. Also on site is an interpretive centre, restaurant and nature trail. TWO • The Covehead Lighthouse (pictured above) is probably the most photographed on the Island. THREE • The Point Prim Lighthouse is PEI’s oldest lighthouse and has been classified as a National Heritage Site. FOUR • The North Rustico Lighthouse has helped guide our local fishers since 1876. It is one of the few remaining lighthouses on PEI that have attached living quarters. FIVE • Tour inside the Cape Bear Lighthouse, where the first distress signals from the Titanic were heard.

New London The lighthouse at West Point is well-known for its distinctive black and white stripes and the beautiful beach it overlooks. But you may not know that it’s open to the public, and includes 13 guestrooms and a museum! Several other PEI lighthouses feature gift shops, where you just may discover that perfect treasure to take back home. Visit tourismpei.com/island-lighthouses.

Visitors’ Tips

Welcoming lights. Whether you’re approaching from sea or land, a lighthouse is a welcome sight. It helps guide boats to safety, calling out through darkness, fog, and storm. It’s unique and beautiful, reaching into the sky with silent grace, like a needle pinning shore to ocean. And it offers a view like no other, unmarred by buildings and billboards. There is nothing else in the world quite like them, and if you’re one of those people who’s inexplicably drawn to lighthouses, you’ve come to the right place. Prince Edward Island has more than 50 of these structures dotting its ragged coastline. More than 38 still function as navigational aids, and nine are open to the public. The lighthouses of PEI: different heights and shapes, varying colours and designs. Each is unique, with its own history and story to tell. But they do share one common element. They all offer their welcoming light.

Visitors’ Tips

Follow the coast. Because of Prince Edward Island’s irregular shape and countless bays and inlets, a trip along our coast delivers new vistas at every turn. Charming communities, each with its own unique flavour, are tucked away, their secret treasures quietly awaiting discovery. Touring our three coastal drives is the perfect way to explore the Island’s diverse landscape and history. North Cape Coastal Drive is brimming with Mi’kmaq culture, Acadian music and theatre, and museums devoted to potatoes, silver foxes, and shipbuilding. You’ll find the Wind Energy Interpretive Centre, The College of Piping, and houses made of glass bottles. The Central Coastal Drive includes fun-filled Cavendish, and much more. Enjoy spectacular views along Route 20, classic fishing ports and lobster suppers, shopping at Gateway Village, and a leisurely stroll around quaint Victoria-bythe-Sea. Points East Coastal Drive features the unforgettable dune system at Greenwich in PEI National Park and the bayside community of St. Peters, as well as stunning beaches, lively ceilidhs, and the meeting of the tides at East Point. Watch for eagles and seals, and try not to miss scenic Montague, rustic Orwell Corner, and the historic Railway Museum & Miniature Railway in Elmira. Visit www.tourismpei.com/pei-scenic-drives.

It’s a question that gets asked quite frequently: “When is the best time to visit Prince Edward Island?” Most visitors arrive in the summer, and for many the Island means golf, beaches, and water sports. In the spring the earth awakens with crocuses, tulips, daffodils, lupins, and the Lady’s Slipper. And as spring slides into summer’s warmth, PEI explodes with Island Fusion, an 18-day celebration of our diverse culture with traditional music, dance, arts and crafts, theatre, and much more. This is a province-wide event and has already become a yearly favourite (tourismpei.com/fusion). And speaking of favourites, the Fall Flavours Festival (see page 73) eases the passing of summer with a series of culinary offerings– cooking boot camps, tasting events, and hands-on activities–all featuring fresh PEI ingredients and set against a colourful autumn backdrop. When is the best time to visit Prince Edward Island? Take your pick! Visit www.tourismpei.com/pei-seasons.

Howe Point, early June

Every season seems more vibrant, more intense, on PEI. The blue ocean in summer, the gold and crimson leaves in fall, the snow-covered landscape in winter, and the vibrant greens of farm fields edged with purple wildflowers in spring. Each will leave you speechless, and fumbling for your camera. Come experience nature’s beauty up close.

Visitors’ Tips

Nature is close at hand! Here are a few tips passed on from our visitors: ONE • The colours in June are amazing. See bright red farm fields framed by the vivid greens of new-season growth and the blues of shore waters. TWO • During spring, touring by car is rewarded with scenes of lupins and other wildflowers growing along Island roads. You could also spot a red fox (pictured above). THREE • The off-season is a great time for golf. The courses are quieter and there is value to be found! FOUR • Enjoy a traditional lobster supper in New Glasgow while taking in the fall colours along the picturesque River Clyde. FIVE • Take a peaceful walk on a sandy beach on a sunny October day.

Visitors’ Tips

Shared wonders. Look at a satellite image of Prince Edward Island and you’ll see a lot of green. Of course: this is the “Garden Province.” But even within the green are specially-designated lands that honour and preserve the natural wonders. National, provincial, community and privately-owned parks. Many are for day-use, while others include campgrounds. Some offer interpretive programs related to the local wildlife, or host special events. Trails abound. They include some of our most popular beaches.

Whichever mode of travel you choose, you will notice that Prince Edward Island’s crescent shape is perfect for a grand circuit tour. Start in the east, arriving by ferry at Wood Islands, loop your way around East Point, then all the way to North Cape in the west, before departing by the dramatic Confederation Bridge. Or, reverse the procedure and begin at the Confederation Bridge. In either case, keep in mind that the bridge and ferry tolls are paid only on departure. Have fun and happy touring!

BE BEACH SAFE

On our Island province you are never far from the ocean and one of our numerous spectacular beaches. From the red sand beaches on the south shore to the white sand beaches on the north shore, Prince Edward Island offers a variety of unique and enjoyable beach experiences. Enjoying the warm waters surrounding the Island is a very popular activity. To fully enjoy your beach experience please follow these tips: • always swim in supervised beach areas. • ensure your children are supervised at all times. • never swim alone. Always swim with a buddy and watch out for each other. • do not consume alcohol

PEI National Park or drugs before or while swimming. Alcohol and drugs impair your abilities and judgment. • weaker swimmers and young children should wear a properly-sized life jacket or personal flotation device (PFD) at all times. • pay close attention to surf conditions. Waves and currents can make water more dangerous than usual. Swimming in the ocean is very different from swimming

in a pool or lake. The strength and force of even small ocean waves can surprise beach goers who are unfamiliar with the power of the sea. When particular surf conditions are present at some of our beaches, rip currents can occur. Rip currents are powerful and can pull people away from shore. Even the strongest swimmers can get into trouble if caught in a rip current. Do not panic if this happens to you; relax and swim parallel to the shore to get out of the current; then swim back to shore. Do not attempt to swim back to shore against the current; it is too strong. Ask your lifeguard for more information when you arrive at the beach. Surf conditions are available by calling toll free 1-800-463-4PEI. PEI National Park beaches provide lifeguard service. Supervised Provincial Park beaches include: Jacques Cartier, Cedar Dunes, Chelton Beach, Northumberland, Cabot Beach, Basin Head, Red Point, and Panmure Island. OUR FRAGILE DUNES

Whenever possible, stay on designated paths and stairways

to the beach to help protect the fragile dune systems. Our white-sand beaches are known for their spectacular natural sand dunes. But they are as fragile as they are beautiful. Over the years, we have come to understand the need to respect these natural habitats for rare plants and wildlife by not disturbing the dunes. In an effort to keep this stunning natural resource intact, clearly marked access points to the beach have been designated. Please don’t play on the dunes; there are plenty of places to play on the beach. The eco-system will thank you. EMERGENCY CALLS

For emergency service, dial 911 anywhere in Prince Edward Island 24/7. The Island’s province-wide 911 Emergency Response System is capable of linking visitors with translators in 140 different languages. It is important that you can identify your location when calling 911 from a cell phone. BILINGUAL SERVICE

In the Visitor’s Guide listings you will find the symbols O (French services) and P (some French services) to designate operators who offer French and English service. Check the listings of individual operators for information on bilingual service. We also publish a French-language Visitor’s Guide; call 1-800-887-5453 or visit us at www.ipe.ca.

HISTORY AT A GLANCE

Today most Islanders are descendants of Europeans; however, PEI’s first residents were the Mi’kmaq. The Mi’kmaq first lived here about 2000 years ago. They called the Island ‘Epekwitk’, meaning “resting on the waves”. European settlers pronounced the name as ‘Abegweit’. French explorers were the first Europeans to visit and settle the Island. Jacques Cartier described the Island as “...the fairest land ‘tis possible to see!” The French called the Island ‘Île Saint-Jean.’ To the British, who later occupied the area, the Island was known as ‘St. John’s Island.’ The Island was renamed in 1799 as ‘Prince Edward Island’ in honour of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, the father of Queen Victoria. In 1758, under British

Doucet House, Rustico control, the Island was annexed to Nova Scotia, and Captain Samuel Holland was later commissioned to survey the land. He divided the Island into 67 townships of 20,000 acres each. In a great lottery held in London, England, English merchants and military figures were granted large parcels of property in the colony. The colony was separated from Nova Scotia in 1769, but land issues continued for over 100 years until after confederation when the Island Government was able to purchase the last of the large estate lots for resale to tenants. Following the American War of Independence, many loyal to the British Crown moved north, some making the Island their home. The 18th and 19th centuries saw the arrival of many British settlers, including Scottish and Irish emigrants fleeing economic

problems in their homeland. The Island prospered in the wood, wind and water economy of the mid 1800s and communities and colonial institutions expanded. The Charlottetown Conference, one of the most significant political events in Canadian history, was held in 1864 to discuss the idea of Canadian union. The conference led to Canada officially becoming a nation in 1867. Prince Edward Island became a province of Canada More on PEI history tourismpei.com/heritage Touring Island roads tourismpei.com/touring-pei

in 1873 after negotiations that promised a continuous link to the mainland. Prince Edward Island is proud to be Canada’s smallest province! HERITAGE PLACES

Scenic Heritage Roads

Many of the Island’s unique, traditional red-clay roads are protected by the Scenic Heritage Road program. A drive down Jack’s Road, John Joe Road or the Klondyke Road will be like a drive directly into the past. A required buffer zone means that many have a canopy of trees. All are unpaved (so don’t attempt a drive too early in spring). These roads are marked with a brown two-tree symbol ( ) on our highway map. Find out more on www.tourismpei. com/heritage-roads.

The Hillsborough River offers a varied set of experiences, from insights into the rich oyster fishery to the wildlife and birds of the river system, to the historical and cultural features of the area.

DIG YOUR MEAL

Many of PEI’s shores are blessed with natural stocks of clams. Whether your preference is soft-shell clams, quahaugs or bar clams, there is a “fishy” experience for you. While a recreational license to fish clams is not required, there are season, size and possession limits, and some areas are closed to shellfish harvesting. Soft-shell clams and quahaugs must be at least 50 mm (approx 2”) in length and bar clams must be at least 102 mm (approx 4”) in length for harvest. A recreational fisher cannot have in possession more than 300 clams, of which not more than 100 are bar clams and 100 are quahaugs. Contact the Department of Fisheries and Oceans at (902) 566-7812 for general information and for areas where it’s safe to dig. Please be mindful that this resource is also a vibrant commercial fishery on PEI and conservation is important.

ISLAND parks

PEI is home to a wide variety of parkland. Visitors and residents alike are never far from one of our 26 Provincial Parks, each with its own unique landscape, features, and natural wonders. Ten of our Provincial Parks include campgrounds, which perfectly complement the many private campgrounds on the Island. If you choose to spend the night to complete your magical day, you’ll find everything you need to keep all of your campers happy. In fact, PEI Provincial Parks contain or are accessible to some of the Island’s most prized beachfront locations. Try your hand at clam digging or take a leisurely stroll along the shore. Swimmers are encouraged to visit any of the eight Provincial Parks that offer surfguard services. All of our parks are ideal for picnics, family reunions, or just getting back to nature. Several include museums and heritage sites. Prince Edward Island

National Park is a 60-kilometre stretch of the Island’s north shore. Home to Cavendish Beach, the Gulfshore Parkway and the breathtaking landscape of Greenwich, the national park brings you up close and personal with some of the Island’s most iconic natural treasures. Whether it’s a day at the beach, a night camping under the stars, or a cycle tour of the north shore coastline, PEI National Park offers something for everyone. This year you’re invited to discover the Greenwich Dunes Trail, awarded the Atlantic Canada Trail Association’s prestigious ‘Destination Trail’ PEI’s Culinary Trail www.peiflavours.ca Trails on the Island tourismpei.com/pei-trails

designation, recognizing it as their highest rated trail in Atlantic Canada. The Island has dozens of smaller community parks, as well, which you can use as your destination or as a place to stop and rest along the way. TRAVELing by RV?

The Island is a special treat for people who travel here by recreational vehicle as the roads are quiet and there are many parks and campgrounds equipped for RVs. Check the campground listings in The Index (page 166) as well as at www.tourismpei.com/parks.

ON THE TRAILS

PEI is the first province to complete its section of the TransCanada Trail. The Confederation Trail was developed on abandoned railway lines more than a decade ago. The Trail is surfaced with excellent rolled stone dust and is quite smooth and almost flat, making it easily negotiated on foot or by bicycle. The tip-to-tip distance on the Trail (Tignish to Elmira) is 274 kilometres. The Trail passes along the sea shore, by farm pastures and woodlots, and through many small communities. The Confederation Trail is a true all-season attraction

GREEN ISLAND

As a small island province, Prince Edward Island depends on the land and the sea as the basis for its three primary industries– farming, tourism and the fishery. All three of these industries are interdependent, and all are contingent on a healthy environment where crops flourish, shellfish thrive, and visitors reap the scenic benefits. The residents of PEI are aware that all this hangs in a delicate balance, and the provincial government and the Island community are taking measures to protect what they believe to be a special and magical place.

LEAVE THE FIREWOOD HOME

Throwing a few pieces of firewood into the trunk of the car before a trip might seem like a good idea, but those logs could destroy a forest. Firewood can carry small but harmful hitchhikers hidden in the wood. The damage

caused by invasive species such as the emerald ash borer can expand exponentially when they get a free ride. In fact, the emerald ash borer has killed millions of ash trees across Canada. Animals and birds lose their habitat. The solution is easy: leave your firewood at home and pick some up locally instead. For more information call (902) 368-4711.

Lobster lore In PEI, lobster is fished in May and June and from mid-August to October. A “canner” is a small but legal-size lobster used for canning. Lobster sold for fresh consumption is “market lobster.” And a “cork” is a hired hand on a fishing vessel, especially a lobster boat. At one time, lobster was considered poor man’s food. Lobsters are naturally red in J O HN S YLV E S T E R

The city of Summerside, just 20 minutes from the Confederation Bridge, serves as a gateway to the North Cape Coastal Drive and is a perfect introduction to a region where pie is made from seaweed, houses are made from bottles and Acadian and native Mi’kmaq cultures thrive. A college dedicated to the Highland arts, a restored lighthouse now operating as an inn, and a museum celebrating our world-famous potato are among the many possible stops along the way. The 350-kilometre North Cape Coastal Drive is named for its midpoint, North Cape, where 16 giant windmills stand on the Island’s westernmost tip. Visit www.tourismpei.com/ north-cape-drive.

Central Coastal Drive Looping the province’s central region, the 253-kilometre Central Coastal Drive highlights two distinct shores. The southern Red Sands Shore portion of the Drive runs along Northumberland Strait, where sandstone cliffs and gentle beaches are the rich Island-red shade that contrasts perfectly with green pastures. Gateway Village at the foot of the Confederation Bridge, Victoria-by-theSea and Port-La-Joye–Fort Amherst National Historic Site are highlights in Red Sands Shore. Some of the Island’s most picturesque sea views are found in Green Gables Shore, along the northern portion of the Central Coastal Drive. Beyond the obvious wealth of sites related to Anne of Green Gables, the area is home to the popular beaches and trails of PEI National Park, amusement parks for the family and no fewer than 10 golf courses! Visit tourismpei.com/central-drive.

Points East Coastal Drive Circling the eastern section of Prince Edward Island, the Points East Coastal Drive winds through scenic fishing villages, past potato farms and country inns. Begin your tour in Stratford or Wood Islands and end in Mount Stewart, or try the reverse. As you make your way around, watch for a historic village, the Island’s first winery, a beach famous for its singing sands and three of the province’s top golf courses. At its midpoint, this 475-kilometre coastal drive takes you to East Point, where you can climb to the top of the lighthouse to enjoy the view. And, while communities such as Montague, Souris, Murray River and Mount Stewart provide any necessary services as you tour, be sure to leave time for visiting a parabolic dune system, a miniature railway and the port where some of the world’s largest Bluefin Tuna are landed.

In spring, things really start to heat up on the Island; the Ceili at the Irish Hall begins in May, and the College of Piping in Summerside hosts the annual Highland Gathering. Then, it is pretty well non-stop party time until October, so be sure you are ready for an entertaining vacation when you plan your Island visit. Besides all the wonderful annual events, watch for some newer activities such as: Island Fusion in spring;

Fall Flavours in September; the Jazz & Blues Festival; the Cavendish Beach Music Festival featuring many of the best country artists; garden concerts and even a ceilidh on the water! Also look for the ( ) symbol in the listings that

follow. It identifies the sanctioned festivals and events marking the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference. Here theatre productions abound at the Victoria Playhouse, Charlottetown Festival, Watermark Theatre,

Rollo Bay

and the Kings Playhouse, just to mention a few. In this section you will find our events broken into three groups: Signature Events; All-Season Events; and the Events Calendar.

in restaurants from PEI to Europe, the North Cape Coastal Drive is The Canadian Oyster Coast. And there are dozens of entertaining lures for your cultural palate too: The Canadian Potato Museum’s Potato Country Kitchen, where everything served up, like fudge you can help make yourself,

involves world-famous PEI potatoes; a church whose rare 1882 organ produces a

symphony of sound through a sequence of 1,118 pipes; and an eclectic combination of live entertainment, from Acadian and Scottish fiddlers, to Aboriginal Mi’kmaq drummers, to pipe and drum Celtic pageants, to Summerside’s burgeoning concert scene. The North Cape Coastal Drive is a smorgasbord of classic Island scenery: naturally sifted white and

North Cape Coastal Drive


red sand beaches, towering red sandstone capes and a necklace of essential coastal stops like the tour’s mid-point and namesake at North Cape. The natural phenomena of North Cape –its age-old patterns of winds and tides–are what actually caused the formation of PEI’s famed north shore beaches over the millennia. Visitors can see where tides from the Northumberland Strait and the Gulf of St. Lawrence mesh; and the wind can be seen too, thanks to the presence of towering, churning turbines– found at the resident Wind Energy Institute. This contrast of nature and modernity is a constant throughout the tour: men toiling with work horses to harvest Irish Moss (when in season); oysterfarming set against the

mer

backdrop of the oyster’s natural tidal habitat; and ocean panoramas which are our celebrities–so photogenic and beautiful that you can’t help but stare. Life along the North Cape Coastal Drive is sea-centric, evoked in the names of events like The Tyne Valley Oyster Festival, the Tignish Irish Moss Festival, the Clammin’ n’ Jammin’ culinary and music festival in AbramVillage and the Summerside

side

Lobster Carnival. Or in the brands of attractions like Northport’s Sea Rescue Interpretive Centre, Green Park Shipbuilding Museum and the PEI Shellfish Museum. This is a coast you can be intimate with: red-clay roads that lead to secret coves; boats emblazoned with fun names like Water Tight Alibi; the boardwalk that traces the city of Summerside’s shoreline; and people who share with their ancestors a love for the sea and a deep appreciation for the sustenance that it provides.

e

Insider Tips ONE • Spinnakers’ Landing in Summerside has shops for crafts, jewellery, clothing and more. Play and picnic area. TWO • Watch the creation of splint baskets at the Island Traditions Store in Richmond. THREE • Stay overnight in the West Point Lighthouse. Stroll the beach to Cedar Dunes Provincial Park. FOUR • Buy moccasins from the Mi’kmaq gift shop on Lennox Island. FIVE • Visit the Musical Village and Centre Expo Restaurant in Abram-Village for Acadian dishes and join in a jig.

Over the last century, millions of readers from all over the world have come to know and love Anne of Green Gables™, and Prince Edward Island is where devotees come to celebrate her. Those who love the books or the TV miniseries make their way to Green Gables Shore in pilgrimagelike fashion to visit the many sites that pay tribute to their favourite red-haired heroine

and her creator, Lucy Maud Montgomery. While Anne may be the

North Granville

principal attraction for many, Green Gables Shore has more beauty and mystique up its sleeve. The region is a spectacular piece of Prince Edward Island’s acclaimed scenic landscape composed of red sandstone cliffs, white sand beaches and rolling farm fields. Some of the classic coastline has been protected in PEI National Park, which hugs the north shore in this area.

Cavendish Grove is a lovely recent addition to the Park, featuring walking trails, picnic grounds and a stand of sugar maples.

There is a warmth that envelopes you here, and it’s embodied by the colour red: the red sand beaches that await your footprints and castles, the red jutting cliffs that will both impress and humble you and the red clay roads that disappear over hills and beckon you to follow. These are Mother Nature’s imprints on Red Sands Shore. You’ll land in the thick of

things if you arrive on the Island via the Confederation Bridge, one of the longest bridges in the world. The 13-kilometre trip takes only 10 minutes but if you’d like more time to appreciate the graceful bridge structure itself, and a chance to get a great photo, head over to the lookout area in North Carleton. Back at the foot of the Bridge, take time to visit the shops at Gateway Village.

Heading east along the TransCanada Highway, you will soon come to Victoria-

Chelton Beach

by-the-Sea, a storybook village if ever there was one. The soul of this historic fishing village has been revitalized by the many artists and other creative people who call it home. Galleries, studios, a theatre, restaurants and, perhaps most tempting, a chocolate factory line the cozy treed streets where you will quickly abandon your car in favour of meandering. The rolling terrain of the

RED SANDS SHORE DRIVE DISTANCES North Cape to East Point, 275 km (171 miles), 3 hours, 45 minutes Borden-Carleton to Clyde River, 49 km (30 miles), 35 minutes Victoria to Rocky Point, 36 km (22 miles), 30 minutes Hunter River to Crapaud, 21 km (13 miles), 20 minutes

lends itself perfectly to scenic touring.

Red Sands Shore region lends itself perfectly to scenic touring and a favourite way to enjoy the Island’s pastoral landscape is to follow some of our Scenic Heritage Roads. These unpaved roads will take you well off the beaten path and into an earlier time in our history. Visit Port-la-Joye– Fort Amherst National Historic Site and discover a fascinating story of settlement, struggle and upheaval as two European powers, first France then Great Britain, sought control of this strategic harbour. Experience tranquility as you stand atop the earthwork remains of

Fort Amherst surrounded by magnificent views of Charlottetown Harbour. It’s easy to enjoy all four seasons in the Red Sands Shore region. When it’s too cool for our beaches and campgrounds, it’s a great time to take a walk in the woods, or venture down a country road underneath a canopy of red and golden

leaves. When the snow starts to fly, the BrookvaleProvincial Ski Park has enough activities to keep you wishing winter would never end. By May, the air is warm and perfect for a canoe or kayak paddle along the West River in St. Catherines. You’ll enjoy the beautiful scenery as you glide along in the shadows of the rolling Bonshaw Hills. No matter the season, the warmth of Red Sands Shore will welcome you.

Dressed in full period costume, the Fathers and Ladies will show you what makes this capital city such a historic gem. You’ll see why it’s also a vibrant urban centre that dances to a beat all its own. Canada was born (or perhaps more accurately, was conceived) here when the Fathers of Confederation met at Province House National Historic Site in 1864 to plot out the creation of Canada.

Besides joining one of the entertaining guided tours, visitors can get caught up on Canadian history at Founders’ Hall, found at the foot of the Great George Street Historic District. Just steps away from Province House National Historic Site

This is where traditional Island fare like fresh vegetables, meats and pies can be found alongside ethnic cuisine from the four corners of the world.

You’ll have plenty of reasons to get up early when you stay “down east,” starting with a delicious country breakfast on your cottage deck while the glowing sun rises over the ocean. That will surely get your day off to a good start and it will only get better from there.

The beaches in the east are among the best on the Island; the spectacular dune system at Greenwich in PEI National Park is a must-do for this region. At Basin Head the sand will even sing to you. Really. Some say it’s the special shape of the grains or the high silica count that

Wood Islands

gives the sand its voice. So take a barefoot stroll along the beach and enjoy the music of “Singing Sands.” Not long ago, Islanders depended on the train to travel long distances and to deliver all sorts of goods from tip to tip. After train service ended, the rail bed

Points East Coastal Drive


was turned into the Confederation Trail, a scenic route that lets you bike, hike or snowmobile from one community to another, or if you’re really ambitious, across the entire Island. One of the most scenic stretches of the Confederation Trail runs right through the village of St. Peters – also a good stopping point for shopping, dining, theatre and music. Although the trains are long gone, the railway hasn’t been forgotten. The Elmira Railway Museum, at the eastern tip of the Trail, tells the story of the railway. While there, you can jump on board a mini-train for a fun tour through the woods. When hunger hits, an eatery is likely just a hop, skip and a jump away. Fine dining in cozy country inns is just one choice in the Points East Coastal Drive

n Tu Bluefi collection of culinary experiences. For something more casual, there are family restaurants, fish and chip joints, cafés and dairy bars. As your day progresses, you might choose to go for a sail, take a seal-watching cruise or play a round or two at one of the world-class golf courses located in this region. And there’s always something happening at the King’s Playhouse in Georgetown. Evening is the perfect time to find a ceilidh, a spirited celebration of Celtic music that’s sure to

Panmure

na get your toes tapping. Orwell Corner and Monticello both host these events on a weekly basis in the summer. The atmosphere is informal and you’ll feel like one of the family in no time. There’s lots to do in the Points East Coastal Drive. In fact this region boasts: 13 golf courses; 34 beaches; 6 lighthouses; 34 history and cultural attractions; 24 harbours; more than 100 restaurants; 230 fixedroof accommodations and campgrounds; 10 provincial parks; 6 Scenic Heritage Roads; and a national park.

Insider Tips ONE • Be here for the Tulip Trail, Tulip you-pick and Festival. TWO • Cycle the scenic section of the Confederation Trail from St. Peters to Morell. THREE • Walk the “Singing Sands” beach from Basin Head to Bothwell; look for starfish! FOUR • Visit the wineries in this region: Rossignol in Little Sands or Newman Estate Winery in Murray River. FIVE • Take the ferry from Wood Islands; relax and let the captain do the driving.
