What’s in your guide? So much! We designed our guide to help you plan your vacation. On an island this size, you may be surprised at just how much there is to see and do here. Enjoy the beautiful photos and interesting articles in the first 67 pages, where you can learn about Island culture, experiences, outdoor adventure and touring routes. Look for Ask an Islander tips in this guide for actual questions asked by visitors, and answers by the people who live here. Don’t forget to take a look at this year’s Festivals & Events schedule, and remember that for the latest up-to-the-minute information, you can call us toll free 1-800-463-4PEI or visit www.tourismpei.com. In the second part of the guide you’ll find categories for Things to do, Food & Beverage, Shopping, Services and Places to Stay organized by the five colour-coded Touring Regions. The listings within each category are arranged alphabetically by community, then alphabetically by the name of the establishment. Accommodations are grouped in four main categories: Camping; Hotels/Motels/Resorts; Cottages / Houses / Apartments; and Inns /Bed & Breakfasts. See page 68 for an explanation of the symbols and abbreviations used in this Guide. Speaking of symbols, look for the open-off-season symbol (N) which identifies establishments open before June 15 and/or after September 15.

Chef Michael Smith

Q: Where can I find the best lobster, mussels, and clams? All I want to do is eat the best seafood ever. - Adam L. A: Because our shores are dotted with boat-filled harbours, we’re always close to our hard-working fishing community so you’ll be blessed with great seafood everywhere you go. You’ll find that our chefs are proud of our local shellfish and – from local cafés to big fancy restaurants – they feature shellfish prominently on menus across the Island. Some of my favourite spots are Water Prince Corner Shop and Shipwreck Café. J - Chef Michael Smith

Experience the art of culinary like never before by catching, harvesting, and cooking your own meal – Island style. Learn more at www.tourismpei.com/culinary-pei.

Emily Donahue

Q: What do you love most about the Island? - Amber R. A: It might be impossible to pick just one thing that I love about PEI and call that my favourite. I love our summer traditions like Old Home Week, COWS Ice Cream, and Anne of Green Gables. I also love how many artisans call PEI home. Charlottetown has started decking out Victoria Row for the Victoria Christmas Market. It’s home, and everything that comes with that. I can only imagine how much I’ll love it 30 years down the road when I have experienced more of it. J - Emily Donahue

What is it? Everyone can use a little islandness in their life. It’s that special something that you feel when you are on Prince Edward Island. You will recognize it, but you may not be able to put your finger on exactly what it is. Is it the salt in the air, the red cliffs that line our sandy beaches, the golf, the cuisine or the people who welcome you time and time again into their homes and into their lives? It’s all this and more. Our way of life here on the Island is unique; you will feel relaxed yet excited, stress free and alive. Prince Edward Island might be small, but we are surprisingly abundant in adventure and activities. The feeling you get on the Island is one-of-a-kind. We can’t wait for you to experience it, so start planning today and come find your Island.

PEI is famous for its beaches: red sand and calm sea along our south shore, white sand and deep blue ocean in the north. See more about our Island at tourismpei.com/the-island. more about

We think everyone needs a little more vitamin ‘sea’ in their lives and we have lots to go around. On Prince Edward Island you are never more than a few minutes away from the shore. If relaxation is what you are looking for, we have miles and miles of sandy beaches with red cliffs calling your name. If you’d rather make a splash, you’ll be happy to hear that our waters are the warmest north of the Carolinas. Swim, snorkel, go kiteboarding or get a bird’s-eye-view of the ocean while parasailing above it. We have countless bays, coves, and inlets perfect for canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. If you are ready to experience the waters like a local, come along with us and go deep-sea fishing or maybe join us on a tuna charter. Adventure seekers, come find your Island.

Kelly Richard

Q: Are there any good places to kiteboard or do extreme water sports on PEI? - Joe D. A: Surrounded by coastal waters makes PEI a great water sport destination! PEI Kiteboarding in Cavendish offers lessons and rentals. Due to our prevailing north-west wind you will enjoy the thrill of swiftly gliding along the water. The Inn on the Pier in Stanley Bridge has paddle boards and sea-doo rentals as well as parasailing! J - Kelly Richard

Feel the fresh air as you discover the coastline of our Island. Paddleboarding, kiteboarding, and kayaking are a few ways to enjoy our unique Island.

Ruth Delong

Q: Are there any great, scenic cycling routes that I should discover while visiting Prince Edward Island? - Nikki A. A: There are many. If you are a road cyclist, two or three ‘must rides’ are the north shore between Cavendish and Rustico, the loop around Port-la-Joye–Fort Amherst and the route from Wood Islands to Cape Bear. If you are on a hybrid bike, the section of the Confederation Trail from Fredericton to Winsloe is one of the nicest, and Morell to St. Peter’s is one of the most popular. You’ll see countryside, farmed fields, woods and creeks along these routes. J - Ruth Delong

Take it outside! PEI has endless possibilities for outdoor enthusiasts, and some that you might not expect. It’s a cyclist’s dream, with scenery worth slowing down for, and trails that will make your heart race. Biking, walking, or running, you will find happiness and adventure on the Confederation Trail, which is 435 kilometers (269 miles) of rolled stone-dust surface. Our hiking and mountain bike trails are beautiful and plentiful. Go for a challenging woodland hike, or slow down with a stroll along the coast. Bring your camera; you will want to remember those views. Go horseback riding, paintballing, golfing, and more. Your adventures have no seasonal limits on PEI. The Confederation Trail is turned over to snowmobilers in the winter months. Don’t forget to pack snowshoes and skis too. Big adventure awaits, even in our small province.

Greenwich, PEI National Park

Emily Donahue

Q: What are some parks you would recommend staying at on PEI over a two-week period? We want an outdoor, hiking, and biking experience? - Brenda M. A: We have so many beautiful parks; it’s honestly really hard to choose! I would say that if you’re looking to stay in the North Cape region, either Cedar Dunes or Jacques Cartier Provincial Parks are great choices. If you’re going to stay in the Points East region either Panmure Island or Brudenell Provincial Parks are a good choice, and if you’re going to be in the Green Gables region, the Cavendish National Park or the Cabot Beach Provincial Park would be lovely! J - Emily Donahue

Shared wonders. Dreaming of sleeping under the stars? Eight of the Island’s provincial parks include campsites; there are also many private and national park campgrounds to choose from. For a small province, there is no shortage of green space. We have 21 provincial parks with free day-use and our Prince Edward Island National Park spans over 60 km of the north shore. Many parks on the Island offer interpretive programs and children’s programming, and host special events. Walk along the vast coastline, explore wooded trails, museums and heritage sites, spot local wildlife, and do some stargazing. Maybe it’s time to get back to nature – let us show you how amazing our Island can be. Let our trails guide you and come find your Island. Visit tourismpei.com/parks for more information.

To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, Parks Canada is waiving entrance fees to National Parks across Canada. Take advantage of this and explore some of the most stunning views on the Island at Cavendish, Stanhope, and Greenwich just to name a few. Visit parkscanada.ca/pei.

Q: I am looking for a clam gathering or lobster experience on PEI. What would you suggest? - Vivian F. A: Tranquility Cove Adventures in Georgetown is a great option. They offer a Giant Bar Clam Dig which is a half-day adventure. You can sign up in advance, and dig your own clams. All equipment is provided, and you get a cook-out on the beach! For lobster excursions, you have quite a bit of choice including A Delicious Catch in North Lake, Lobster Lovers in Souris, and Lobster Boil on the Beach at Milliganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wharf, West Point, or Tignish Shore.

Q: Which PEI golf course offers the closest thing to a true Scottish/Irish links experience? - Nick P. A: The answer to your question would be The Links at Crowbush Cove. Crowbush is set on the dunes of the north shore in Lakeside, 30 minutes east of Charlottetown. It’s the most well-known course on the Island and has been perennially ranked among the top courses in Canada. Thomas McBroom designed Crowbush which opened in 1993. In 1994 Golf Digest named it the Best New Course in Canada. There are eight holes that either run along or have a view of one of the best beaches on the north shore. J - Ryan Garrett

Did you know that you can book your tee times online at www.golfpei.com for some of our best courses such as Andersons Creek, Mill River, Brudenell River, or Glasgow Hills?

Where sea meets shore. The best part of being on an island is being surrounded by beaches and ours are nothing short of world class. It is hard to choose which beach to visit first, but luckily, our 1100 kilometres of shoreline is all beautiful. You can choose the south side of the Island for warm water and the red sand you’ve heard so much about, or check out the north side which has pristine white sand and rolling surf. Have a snooze in the sunshine, breathe in the salt air, take a dip, search for starfish, make the sandcastle of your dreams, walk along the red cliffs, and watch the sun set over the ocean. There is nothing quite like it. The beach is the perfect place to relax and revitalize, have fun and make memories. What is your perfect beach day? Grab your sunscreen and a towel, come find your Island.

Q: Which of PEI’s beaches is the most dog friendly? - Pamela H. A: Dogs are not allowed on the beaches of the PEI National Park between April 1 and October 15, for reasons of conservation, public health and security. However, you can enjoy the trail system with your dogs as long as they are on a leash. Dogs are allowed on provincial parks beaches at any time, on a leash. Many small local beaches such as Tea Hill, Blooming Point, and Tracadie will allow you to let your dog run free but we always advise you to keep an eye out for other dogs and small children. J - Kelly Richard

Canadian travel site vacay.ca named Basin Head Provincial Park the best beach in Canada. To find out why, you’ll have to experience it and walk along the Singing Sands. Be beach safe, see page 54. Visit tourismpei.com/pei-beaches.

Q: Are there woodworking artisans on the Island? Carving and/or wood products? - James K. A: There are a number of wood workers on Prince Edward Island and many use local wood. The PEI wildfowl carvers are a great resource for local carvers in the area. A place that comes to my mind is McAskills Studio in Charlottetown - itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great spot to shop and explore your own artistic talents. J - Peter Llewellyn

Q: If you had to list five things to see in PEI, where would you take me to get a feel for the country? - Charlotte C. A: If I had to narrow it down to my top five attractions, I would say, in no particular order, the village of Victoria-by-the-Sea, the West Point Lighthouse, Green Gables Heritage Place, downtown Charlottetown and the Prince Edward Island National Park. Within the Prince Edward Island National Park, I really like the Cavendish Beach Complex and the Greenwich Dunes trail. There are so many other great attractions across the Island but these five are among my favourite attractions to take friends and family who visit the Island. J - Elizabeth Jorgensen

Let your kids help you explore the Island through their eyes full of excitement, endless energy, and a hunger for fun. Ride a mini-train and bumper cars, zip down a waterslide, play laser tag or battle it out over some mini-golf. Feel that rush of adrenaline as you ride to the top of the ferris wheel, or as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starting the descent on the rollercoaster track. Fall in love with your wild side while horseback riding. Discover your competitive side while paintballing. After the sun goes down enjoy some live music, go dancing, visit an art gallery, or try one of our amazing restaurants, breweries, wineries, or distilleries. There is never a dull moment around here!

Q: Where is the best place to find any history on my family? I know they lived in Charlottetown for several generations but I have limited knowledge of their time there. - Marti G. A: Tracing your family history can be a challenge but it can also be a lot of fun. The Prince Edward Island Genealogical Society will be a huge help in your search. If you are in Charlottetown, I would encourage you to visit the Prince Edward Island Public Archives as well as the Charlottetown Confederation Centre Public Library. The public archives will have plenty of information to get you started and the library will have resources about the Charlottetown area history. J - Elizabeth Jorgensen

Dean Constable

Q: How many actresses are hired per year to play the role of Anne for the season? Is there an acting school on PEI? - Wesley O. A: If you are talking about Anne of Green Gables –The Musical™ at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, then one actress is hired each year to play the role of Anne Shirley. The entire cast of 26 actors is selected from across Canada. If you are talking about shows across the Island, well, it’s impossible to count! There are two full musicals based on the Anne of Green Gables series and you may find Anne Shirley in many places across the Island. There is a theatre program offered in PEI by Holland College and the Confederation Centre of the Arts! J - Dean Constable

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? The classics? Whatever your preference, it’s all here. Enjoy the show! more about

We have attractions all over the Island dedicated to our beloved Anne and Lucy Maud Montgomery. In Charlottetown, see Anne of Green Gables – The Musical ™ at the Confederation Centre of the Arts or Anne & Gilbert: The Musical at The Guild. In Cavendish, drop into Green Gables Heritage Place, visit the Anne of Green Gables Museum in Park Corner where Lucy Maud Montgomery was married, then go to Lower Bedeque and see the school where she taught. You can almost see Anne hitting Gilbert over the head with a chalkboard! Feel the influence this Island had on Lucy Maud Montgomery, and you will understand why Anne was so enchanted by life here.

Q: I’m coming to PEI to experience Anne of Green Gables with my daughter. Even though she is now grown, it was and is one of her favourite stories from childhood. Where should we stay that keeps us close to Anne events? - Jill T. A: Anne lives in the heart of many who have read the novel, so what a delight to be able to visit our beautiful Island where Lucy Maud Montgomery was inspired to write. The Cavendish area is surrounded by all things “Anne” so you can’t go wrong staying in that area. If you are returning to the mainland via the Confederation Bridge, why not stop in at Shop & Play in Borden-Carleton? You can dress up as Anne and pose next to the only statue of her in the world.

Q: If you had to choose one or two lighthouses to see on the Island, which ones would you pick? - Jo-Anne B. A: A couple that are fairly close together and ones I would visit would be the Cape Bear Lighthouse and Panmure Island Lighthouse. Cape Bear was built in 1881 and houses one of seven Marconi wireless stations established by Marine and Fisheries in 1905-06. Panmure was built in 1853 and marks the entrance to Georgetown Harbour. If you can find the time, you won’t want to miss touring any of the nine open lighthouses as they all have their own unique features and views. J - Michelle Cann

PEI National Park

Each of the lighthouses you visit on PEI has a unique history. The Cape Bear Lighthouse received the first distress calls from the Titanic, and the North Rustico Lighthouse has helped guide local fishers since 1867. Discover the history and take in the views.

From the top of a lighthouse is one of the best places to see the Island. The views are unforgettable. PEI has more than 50 lighthouses along our red shore, each more beautiful than the last, so have your camera ready! Many are still navigational today and nine of them are open to the public! You can tour them, shop in them, climb to the top. You can even stay the night at the West Point Lighthouse! Be sure to visit different lighthouses and see the many landscapes of the Island or catch the sunset from a birds eye view. We have created a whole tour for you lighthouse lover’s that can be found at tourismpei.com/lighthouse-lovers-tour. The draw to a lighthouse is undeniable. When you see one you just have to explore. Their lights let you know you’re safe, and welcomed. Let our lighthouses guide you here, let their charm make you want to stay.

The Feast starts with Oyster Hour, an interactive exploration of the properties grounds, farm, and gardens including an all-you-can-slurp Oyster Bar and the day’s flavours from outdoor fire-pits, smokehouse, and farm. The Feast itself is served family style at long butcherblock tables overlooking Bay Fortune. The menu always includes freshly baked wood-oven bread, smoked fish, seafood chowder, their famous farm salad, local meats, fish and vegetables, all 100% prepared interactively over live fire. www.innatbayfortune.com

THE FIREWORKS FEAST Chef Michael Smith and his wife Chastity re-launched the historic Inn at Bay Fortune, where he cooked in the 1990s, with a five-star focus and the creation of one of the world’s most unique farm-to-fireto-fork culinary experiences, The FireWorks Feast.

Q: What are some of the best scenic drives for motorcycles? - Debbie K. A: Any of the coastal drives outlined on our website will offer some beautiful views. I find people traveling on motorcycles tend to like the Points East and North Cape loops because they offer a longer ride. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find a lot more fishing villages and lighthouses along the eastern coast, and more of the Acadian communities and red rock cliffs along the North Cape region. Both are lovely areas for touring. Enjoy your drive! J - Emily Donahue

Fill up your tank, and charge your camera. Our Island is waiting for you to tour along one of our coastal drives. You will discover farmlands, cities, breathtaking views and charming small towns. In the North Cape Coastal Drive you will find houses made of bottles, a potato museum, hear Acadian music, and see a wind turbine farm. The Central Coastal Drive takes you through fishing villages, past Cavendish Beach and attractions, into Victoria-by-the-Sea. Enjoy the stunning views of the Confederation Bridge. Points East Coastal Drive is all about beaches; over 50 in fact, all part of the eastern end of the Island. Make sure to stop at Greenwich National Park and walk the trail to the shore or go back in time with a visit to Orwell Corner. PEI may be small, but there is so much to see and experience here. Be sure to take your time, and plan to stop and explore often. You will find hidden gems all along the way.

Seasoned with colour. Anytime is a good time to visit PEI. In the summer enjoy water sports, golfing, and beaches. It’s a jam-packed time of year for festivals, concerts, and theatre. The entire month of September is dedicated to our cuisine with the Fall Flavours Festival including the ever popular International Shellfish Festival! The fall foliage on PEI is amazing. Displays of bright orange, yellow and red make hiking, cycling, festivals, and apple picking all the more enjoyable. When the trees lose their leaves, you can feel winter in the air; it’s crisp and fresh. Winter brings a blanket of snow and cooler temperatures, perfect for snowshoeing, skiing and ice-skating. In February, the Jack Frost Festival features ice sculptures and giant ice slides and family activities. In spring, enjoy Maritime musicians at the May Run Music Festival and the Festival of Small Halls just in time for summer. Pick a season, and come find your Island.

Q: What would be the best month to visit the Island, June, July or August? I am hoping to spend time photographing. - Jeremie P. A: June is a personal favourite. The seasons are changing and it’s a good chance to have a fresh start after several months of snow. The heavy tourism season has yet to begin but the winter cleanup is over and the colours of green are coming to life. June has the longest days of the year so plan for early sunrises and late sunsets. If fishing interests you, the spring lobster season is in full force with plenty of activity in the harbours and many boats visible from the shore in the mornings. J - Stephen DesRoches

PEI is going to have a special celebration of Canada’s 150th with free entry to the PEI National Park, fireworks, tall ships, art exhibits and more. more about

GETTING HERE Being surrounded by water is no deterrent to visiting the Island. It actually makes the trip that much more fun. 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!

• weaker swimmers and young children should wear a properlysized 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

To fully enjoy your beach experience please follow these tips: • always swim in supervised beach areas, see illustrated map on page 54. • 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 or drugs before or while swimming. Alcohol and drugs impair your abilities and judgment.

GREEN ISLAND As a small island province, Prince Edward Island depends on the land and the sea as the basis for its three traditional 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.

Some of the programs and legislation currently in place include: • legislation relating to crop rotation and riparian buffer zones. • the Watershed Management Fund provides support to wildlife habitat enhancement projects; wetland, riparian, and stream habitat enhancement. • support for the Island Nature Trust, which protects and manages natural areas. • land use and land ownership controls such as limitations to land ownership by residents, corporations and non-residents by the L.M. Montgomery Land Trust. See www.landtrust.ca. Information on these and other programs can be obtained from Island Information Services or tourismpei.com/pei-environment. Save a piece of endangered land as a green gift, green memorial or carbon offset. To learn more, visit the Trees in Trust website www.treesintrust.com. BEACH BITS Swimming at PEI beaches is comfortable due to the presence of the Gulf Stream and the very shallow shelf, which allows the water to heat up quite nicely. Water temperatures can reach 20ºC (70ºF) in July and August. • some Island beaches are host to the nesting sites of the

endangered Piping Plover. • marram grass holds our beautiful, delicate sand dunes in place. • our “singing sands” at Basin Head make a squeaky noise due to high silica content. • carrageenan, an extract from Irish Moss found on PEI shores, is used in ice cream. 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. 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. C AR RI E GR EG ORY

HERITAGE RIVERS PEI has two Canadian Heritage River systems: one in the Hillsborough River area and the other in the Three Rivers area of Cardigan, Brudenell and Montague. The river systems have been recognized for their rich cultural history. Brudenell Point was the site of an early French settlement (now Roma at Three Rivers) and the birthplace of one of PEI’s Fathers of Confederation, Andrew A. MacDonald. 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. 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

Bonshaw River 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. 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

areas have been set aside to conserve and protect sensitive ecological sites. These sites may contain rare or threatened plant species, critical habitats for birds or animals, or unique ecological features. We are also very proud of the almost 100 ponds and wetlands that are both natural and man-made habitats, rich in

terms of biodiversity and critical to the survival of many species. For more information call 902-368-6450.

lobster. At one time, lobster was considered poor man’s food. Some Island farmers put crushed lobster shells on their fields as fertilizer. Male mussels are a light creamy colour while female mussels are a yellowish rust. Each year, PEI mussel farmers harvest more than 37 million pounds of delicious mussels bound for markets around the world. The rows of buoys seen in many Island bays mark the miles of mussel lines suspended just beneath the surface. Oysters really are good for you – a great source of protein, and high in zinc! Malpeque Oysters may be grown anywhere in PEI. More and more, growers are branding the oysters according to the local source, such as Colville Bay or Raspberry Point. Can you tell the difference?

VISITOR INFORMATION Visitor Information Centres ( ) Destination Centres ( ) and Welcome Centres are located across Prince Edward Island. Friendly counsellors are ready to help you plan your itinerary or give you the scoop on the latest local activities and things to do. 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) 566-7814 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.

Confederation Trail BUY PEI FRESH Prince Edward Island really is just like one very large garden, and bonus – it is surrounded by an ocean full of lobster, oysters, mussels and other fish products. Be sure to look for locally produced items when you shop – why not visit a few farmers’ markets, or pick up your supper at a roadside stand? For a list of roadside markets and some farm tour ideas visit www.peiflavours.ca. Experience, taste and explore the food culture of Prince Edward Island with the PEI Flavours Culinary Trail. Travel along scenic coastal routes where new and fun experiences await. Pick fresh apples, go deep-sea fishing, or dig our famous potatoes with your own hands. After visiting our restaurants and local markets that serve and sell Island food, follow the Culinary Trail to meet local farmers and fishers who will offer insight into the traditions of yesterday and the bounties

of today. For more information visit www.peiflavours.ca. Be sure to check out the winners for the 2016 Taste Our Island Award on page 47. THAT’S ISLAND STYLE! Celebrate Island style with locally produced food and beverages. Throughout spring and summer local producers participate in in-store promotions that showcase Island products. Recipes are created using locally sourced ingredients. You can find the recipes and drink pairing suggestions in brochures found in establishments across the Island as well as online at peiflavours.ca/thats-island-style.

VISIT US IN WINTER It’s true that PEI is very popular in spring, summer and fall, but have you ever thought of visiting us in winter? You should consider snowmobiling the Island from tip to tip, staying in a winter cabin, x-country skiing or joining us for our winter carnivals and events. The Brookvale Provincial Ski Park features an alpine centre and a nordic/cross-country/biathlon centre. The cross country ski centre and trails were built for the 1991 Canada Games and are said to be the best east of Québec.

Green Gables Shore


A taste of what to see and do in the Green Gables Shore region.

1

THE BEACHES Whether it’s an early morning run, a sunset stroll, or soaking up the mid-day sun, there’s a beach for you. Check out the white sandy beaches of Cavendish, Brackley, Stanhope or North Rustico within the PEI National Park. North of Malpeque, enjoy red cliffs and sandy beaches at Cabot Beach Provincial Park.

2

LOTS OF GOLF! Green Gables Shore has more than 10 courses just minutes apart. The area boasts a multitude of cottages, resorts and villages to host your golf getaway. Maybe start by hitting the links at Anderson’s Creek Golf Club in picturesque Stanley Bridge. At days end, relax at a campfire, or enjoy the sunset on the waterfront deck of one of our local eateries.

CULINARY New Glasgow Lobster Suppers is an unforgettable Island tradition. This third generation family restaurant has been serving lobster in New Glasgow since 1958! The Rustico area is another favourite Island spot to find a plethora of culinary options . The seafood bubbly bake at the Blue Mussel Café is loaded with seafood and baked to perfection. And as the locals say, “don’t drive by, drive in!” to the Frosty Treat in Kensington for their famous soft serve ice cream.

If you’re travelling to our fair Island via the Confederation Bridge, we invite you to take a deep breath of fresh ocean air and begin the transformation process. As you approach the gateway to Prince Edward Island, listen to the songs of seabirds and the soothing rhythm of waves along the coastline. You’ve landed in Red Sands Shore, and no matter where you turn, you’ll find

friendly, fun-loving Islanders, eager to offer help or directions, or to tell a good story. The Red Sands Shore region is also rich with gifted artisans, stunning galleries and charming architecture. Choose an evening of incredible local dining and theatre, or stop at the wharf or roadside produce stands to pick up seafood and vegetables to throw on the barbecue. Wander off toward the sparkling water

that surrounds the red shores of the region, and you’re certain to find a reward at road’s end.

Red Sands Shore


A taste of what to see and do in the Red Sands Shore region.

1

EXPLORE CULTURE Red Sands Shore is historically, culturally and artistically rich. Visit Lower Bedeque to explore a historic schoolhouse and tea room – both with strong links to our beloved author, Lucy Maud Montgomery. Interact with woodcrafter Wilfred Thompson of Thompson’s Wood Craft in North Bedeque; his specialty wood products are on display and for purchase.

2

CONFEDERATION BRIDGE Red Sands Shore is home to the spectacular 13 km Confederation Bridge, a marvel of engineering and one of the world’s longest bridges. Visit the Gateway Village Information Centre and watch a 20-minute video on how the bridge was built. Visit the Marine/Rail Historical Park, where you can actually touch the bridge. Visit Chelton Beach Provincial Park: the surrounding vistas of the bridge provide a perfect scenic backdrop.

Appalachian Trail begins in Borden-Carleton, after hikers are shuttled across the Confederation Bridge. Connect with By the Sea Kayaking in Victoria for a paddling tour, clam digging experience, paddle boarding or bicycle rental.

4

VICTORIABY-THE-SEA Become a character in the storybook village of Victoria. Walk the village, where you will be hosted by eclectic shop keepers and creative types. Enjoy a seafood scoff at one of the eateries, shop for artisan wares, and definitely plan to take in a comedy or concert at the Victoria Playhouse, cornerstone of the village.

5

PLAN A SCENIC PHOTO TOUR There are a number of scenic look-offs that provide stunning vistas and the perfect photo op . Check out the look-offs and interpretive panels found in North Carleton, Fort Amherst– Port-la-Joye or Victoria-bythe-Sea. Or pose with Anne of Green Gables, a marine quarter master, or a larger than life cow in Borden-Carleton.

The world premiere of A Misfortune and Bittergirl: The Musical will play at The Mack, while Glenda’s Kitchen returns to Studio 1.

As the Birthplace of Confederation, Charlottetown will proudly celebrate its important role in the founding of Canada with a spectacular outdoor Sounds & Light Show. Recounting the birth of Canada, the free nightly screening at the Confederation Centre will showcase the nation’s diversity and highlight our bright future.

EXPERIENCE THE WATER Charlottetown perches gracefully at the mouth of the historic Hillsborough River, infusing the city with salty air and sparkling harbour views. Those with a seafaring heart can get closer to the water with kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding options at Paddles, or hop on one of the many boat tours departing from Peake’s Wharf daily.

5

HARNESS RACING A unique Island experience that’s spanned many generations, harness racing remains a much beloved Island tradition. With its state-of-theart facilities, simulcast theatres and on-site casino, Red Shores Racetrack & Casino offers entertainment day and night.  For those in search of an introduction to harness racing, the Top of the Park race night buffets are the perfect way to pair an exceptional night of dining with the thrill of watching live races.

There are beaches for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and clamming. Make new friends while you hunt for sea glass, starfish and seashells!

CUISINE, WINE & SPIRITS In eastern PEI it’s all about fresh local food and pairings. Excellent local wine. Even legal moonshine. Chef Michael Smith, the popular Food Network TV host, and his wife Chastity, owners of the Fireworks Restaurant at The Inn at Bay Fortune, believe this region is developing a reputation as a gourmet hot spot. Your food adventure will lure you to our wonderful coastal towns and communities to find culinary offerings at cozy country inns, resorts, family restaurants, fish and chip stands and dairy bars.
