Islandness

po

rt

Elizabeth Jorgensen

Q: What is one sentence to describe PEI? - Joia J. A: What a challenge! If I had to describe PEI in once sentence today it would be this one: Prince Edward Island is a magical place where the sea and the land come together to both welcome us home, no matter where we are from in the world, and to inspire those of us who love this place to seek our creativity within, whether that is in the art that we create, the work that we do or the landscapes and sights that we seek. There are so many other things that can be said about this beautiful place, but I hope that this is helpful for you! J - Elizabeth Jorgensen

What is it? It’s that special something that you feel when you’re on Prince Edward Island. You will recognize it the moment you arrive, 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. Everyone can use a little Islandness in their life and we can’t wait for you to experience it.

Chef Jeff McCourt

Q: Hello, I want to learn how to shuck oysters. I am wondering if I can hire a local to teach me? - Janet N. A: You’ve come to the right place to learn to shuck! I can give you two suggestions. Experience PEI has a package “Tong and Shuck.”  This takes you out with a real oyster fisherman who will show you how to farm oysters as well as shuck and eat them right out of the water! I would also suggest coming to the PEI International Shellfish Festival in September and taking in the Feast and Frolic – this event hosts the world’s largest oyster bar where you can sample the huge variety of oysters being produced on PEI. And if you want to learn more – buy a box of oysters at a local fish mart and practice, practice, practice!  Enjoy your visit to the “Oyster Capital of the World”! J - Chef Jeff McCourt

Q: Are there any travel tips for Anne of Green Gables enthusiasts regarding the best time to visit and things to do? - Morgan G. A: Though the Island is beautiful and exciting all year long, I would say that summer is the best time for an Anne enthusiast to visit. There are quite a few attractions on the Island related to Anne. Starting with the inspiration of the house itself at Green Gables Heritage Place, where you can explore the original house that the novel was based on. Also, I recommend checking out the Anne of Green Gables Museum, which offers Matthew’s carriage rides around the property. Or go back in time to where it all started by visiting Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Birthplace in New London! J - Kelly Richard

Montgomery’s Island. L.M. Montgomery may have created her as a fictional character, but the spirit of Anne Shirley is alive in every corner of this place. You can feel the influence that this island had on Montgomery and how it is reflected in her character, Anne, and her many other iconic characters such as Emily of New Moon, Jane of Lantern Hill and Pat of Silver Bush. Explore the newly created literary tour The Inspiring World of L.M. Montgomery where you can visit where Montgomery was born, married, taught, and wrote. See Anne, Matthew, Marilla, and Gilbert come alive in Charlottetown at Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™ at the Confederation Centre of the Arts or in Anne & Gilbert: The Musical at The Guild. When you arrive on the Island you will quickly understand why Montgomery wrote her characters as being enchanted by life here. It’s because she herself was. Come be inspired and see the magic for yourself.

On the North Cape Coastal Drive, visit houses made of glass bottles, learn about Mi’kmaq and Acadian culture, and see the world’s biggest potato. The Central Coastal Drive takes you by the Confederation Bridge, to Cavendish for playtime, and into Victoria-by-the-Sea for lobster rolls. The Points East Coastal Drive will lead you past 50 beaches, to one of the top ranked golf courses in Canada, to walk over water and parabolic dunes at Greenwich National Park, go back in time with a visit to Orwell Corner Historic Village, and to the end of the world at the East Point Lighthouse. No matter how many times you explore our coastal drives, you will always find a new adventure.

Kelly Richard

Q: How long would it take us to do a complete coastal trip? Where would you suggest we stay, and what should we see? - Cheryl C. A: To do a combination of our three coastal drives, the distance  is nearly 1100 kilometres so we suggest at least a day in each region. You will see unforgettable views, quaint fishing villages and charming small towns. You will find Island artisans, lighthouses, beaches with red or white sand, museums for all interests, historical sites and delicious cuisine. Our  accommodations search tool on the PEI website is quite helpful. Search by region, type, date and number of nights and it will generate a list of availabilities based on your criteria. Enjoy your visit! J - Kelly Richard

J.J. Chaisson

Q: Can you tell me some good places for kayaking on PEI? I am looking for suggestions for inland waterways. - Jon N. A: Great question and there are lots of options! Here’s a few ideas. On the western end of PEI you could launch your kayak at the Alberton wharf and from there you’ll have miles of the Mill River to enjoy. In central PEI you could kayak from the Charlottetown marina and make your way under the bridge to enjoy the Hillsborough River. In eastern PEI you can launch your kayak at the bridge in Morell and cruise up the scenic Morell River. I hope this helps you out! J - J.J. Chaisson

Did you know that Malpeque Bay is not only famous for oysters, but also kiteboarding? The shallow waters and strong wind off the coast make it a world-class destination for this epic activity. more about

Take it outside! Dive in and experience the warmest waters north of the Carolinas. You can swim, kayak, paddleboard, snorkel, kiteboard, go parasailing and so much more. Prince Edward Island is often described as a cyclist’s dream, with scenery worth slowing down for, and trails that will make your heart race. Discover the Confederation Trail, 449 kilometres (279 miles) of rolled stone-dust surface that will lead you tip-to-tip across the Island stopping in small towns along the way. Get your adrenaline rushing and try a hiking and mountain biking trail, or take it easy as you slow down and stroll along the coast. Go golfing, horseback riding, and more. Your adventures have no seasonal limits on PEI. Have fun in the snow by skiing, skating and snowshoeing. The Confederation Trail is turned over to snowmobilers in the winter months. Big adventure awaits in our small province. See more at www.tourismpei.com/adventure.

Q: Where is the best place to golf with an ocean view? - Kim O. A: On PEI, nearly every one of our courses is on the water or has great water views. The Links at Crowbush Cove and Belfast Highland Greens (a nine-hole gem) are two that are situated ocean side and will not disappoint. Dundarave  and Brudenell River offer great river views and Dundarave has one of PEI’s most picturesque golf holes. Green Gables in Cavendish offers great views of the ocean. Glen Afton,  Clyde River and Countryview are situated on the shore and all offer golf holes that run alongside the ocean or river.

Q: If I only have one day for the beach, which one should I choose? - Tracey L. A: This is a tough question! I would have to suggest Basin Head in the Souris area. This beach has something for everyone. It is a Provincial Park beach so there are washrooms,  life guards, a gift shop, gazebo and canteen. There is also the Basin Head Fisheries Museum on site. The beach here is also known for its “singing sands” and sea glass! Lastly, there is a charming little bridge that goes over a channel of water that separates the two beaches and leads to the ocean. It really is one of PEI’s best beaches! I hope you have a great time! J - Megan Murnaghan

Where sea meets shore. One of the best parts of being on an island is being surrounded by beaches and ours are nothing short of world class. It’s hard to choose which beach to visit first, but luckily, all our 1100 kilometres of shoreline is beautiful. You can choose the south side of the Island for warm water and red sand, or check out the north side which has a rolling surf and pristine white sand. Relax 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. Many of our provincial and national park beaches offer accessibility measures such as mobility mats and beach wheelchairs to help visitors explore our shoreline. For more info, check out tourismpei.com/beach-locations. Grab your sunscreen, a towel, and come find your Island.

Chef Jeff McCourt

Q: Are there any biking trails that go along the shores in the Rustico/Cavendish area? - Jennifer S. A: You’ve definitely hit the spot for some scenic vista cycling! The Gulf Shore Parkway bike path right out of North Rustico will take you along the ocean with plenty of places to stop and take in the view, or take a dip!  You will find plenty of trail to cycle with the Confederation Trail (old rail line) winding its way through the province – Morell to St. Peters is my favourite part! Another nice ride is from Brackley to Dalvay in the PEI National Park. Follow the coast on a dedicated bike lane. Plan for Richard’s in Covehead (about mid way) to refuel – they make a mean fish & chips as well as a lobster roll you’ll never forget! J - Chef Jeff McCourt

At Greenwich, PEI National Park, you can literally walk on water; well technically you walk over water. The floating boardwalk is super cool and leads to an unforgettable view of the unique parabolic dunes and a spectacular beach! Visit www.parkscanada.ca/pei. more about

Sandi Lowther

Q: I plan to travel east this year. How can I get to know the Island’s people and culture? - Tom F. A: There are so many ways to experience culture on the Island! First, I would suggest you consider participating in a PEI ceilidh. Another cultural experience I recommend is to enter Lucy Maud Montgomery’s world. Many of the Montgomery and Anne attractions have been maintained in their original state from when she wrote her world-famous novels. In the western part of the Island, there are also the Stompin’ Tom Connors Centre and the PEI Potato Museum. Both highlight true Island culture. J - Sandi Lowther

Discover our vibrant culture! We are overflowing with cultural pride because of our expanding diversity and want to share our traditions old and new. Join us for a taste of Scottish traditions at Highland Storm in Summerside. Get a glimpse of the historical legacy and practices of the Mi’kmaq at the Panmure Island or Lennox Island Pow Wows. Celebrate the lively Acadian culture at Village Musical Acadien in Abram-Village. The Island culture is diverse and rich. You can taste it at food festivals and the local cuisine of small communities, you can see it in the beautiful work of our artisans, experience it by spending time with Islanders during an Authentic PEI Experience, and learn it at one of the many museums. You can hear it in the music that is the heartbeat of Island culture. It’s found on the beaches and along red clay roads. Just like the tides, our culture is ever changing.

Festival of Small Halls

This year will mark the 300th anniversary of the arrival of the first French and Acadian settlers in Prince Edward Island. There will be celebrations of Acadian culture across the Island.

Get ready to be entertained! We have an impressive amount of wonderful musicians, dancers, storytellers and writers so it’s only fitting that we boast some of the finest theatre and musical performances in the country. You will find incredible shows across the Island throughout the year. The Charlottetown Festival is presenting an impressive line up in 2020, with shows such as The Drowsy Chaperone, Dear Rita, and Bed & Breakfast. The festival will also include the 56th season of Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™. The Guild will present Anne & Gilbert: The Musical. Check out the Watermark Theatre in North Rustico, Harmony House Theatre in Hunter River, the Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside, the St. Peter’s Courthouse Theatre, the Kings Playhouse in Georgetown and the Victoria Playhouse for intimate shows and incredible acoustics. Watch the curtain draw back, and enjoy the show!

Q: I am visiting PEI for the first time. Are there any live music/theatre performances that I should be sure to schedule? - Kelly Y. A: I would recommend checking out the Young Company. They offer free outdoor performances at the Confederation Centre of the Arts throughout the summer at noon. I would also recommend checking out the Victoria Playhouse.  Victoria is beautiful and has one of my favourite restaurants,  The Lobster Barn. If you like lobster, you need to try their lobster roll. As for the Highland Storm, I have not personally seen it, but a classic Celtic show would never disappoint! J - Megan Murnaghan

We have endless attractions, miles and miles of sandy beaches to run on, parks to explore, and incredible hands-on experiences. Visit a family farm, stop for the cheesy family vacation photo, eat ice cream every chance you get, sleep under the stars or create a fort in your car and take in a movie at the drive-in theatre. On our small Island, you will find limitless adventure and fun. Even though you can easily schedule your vacation to be jam packed, we won’t judge if all you want to do is hang out at a cottage or on the beach with your family and a good book!

Q: My young family will be spending about a week on PEI. What are the “must sees” on the Island for a family that wants to experience the highlights? - Danielle B. A: That’s great! There are lots of great options for outdoor activities  such as kayaking and hiking, as well as bicycling and geocaching. Some great attractions that I like to recommend for families include  The Bottle Houses, Lennox Island Mi’kmaq Cultural Centre, Village Musical Acadien, Shinning Waters Family Fun Park, The Toy Factory,  The Butterfly House, Island Hill Farm, Orwell Corner Historic Village and  Basin Head Provincial Park, just to name a few! I also must mention  Matthew’s Carriage Rides, The Great Canadian Soap Co, and our wonderful sandy beaches! J - Elizabeth Jorgensen

Q: We are always searching for great homemade ice cream. Do you have any recommendations for our PEI visit? - Michele S. A: Ice cream and PEI– a perfect combination! Find homemade Ice cream in Souris at Cherry on Top Creamery. Rebecca makes her ice cream with fresh PEI ingredients and is creative with her variety of flavours. In the Charlottetown area there is the COWS Ice Cream Factory that you can tour. COWS ice cream is also available in Cavendish. Ice cream is also made at Amalgamated Dairies Ltd (ADL) in Summerside  and it is available at ice cream stands all across the Island and is wonderful. Oh, I almost forgot! Holman’s Ice Cream Parlour in Summerside also makes their own gourmet ice cream. I hope that covers your ice cream cravings! J - Charlene Belsher

Let’s just play! 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 you’re starting the descent on the rollercoaster track. Fall in love with your wild side while horseback riding or try paddle boarding with goats! Discover your competitive side while paintballing or get spooked at our haunted houses. After the sun goes down enjoy some live music, go dancing, visit an art gallery, or try one of our amazing restaurants, breweries, wineries, cideries or distilleries. There is never a dull moment on the Island! Join in on the fun and come find your Island.

Q: Where can we see lobster fishing boats with their daily catch in summer? - Jasmine C. A: Look for lobster fishing boats on the north side of the Island during the spring season (first of May to end of June) and on the south side during the fall season (mid-August to mid October). You can see up close how lobster fishing is done on a PEI lobster fishing adventure or excursion. The Fiddling Fisherman in Souris offers a Lobster Lovers experience where you experience everything from catching to eating a lobster, and be entertained while you do!  Ernie’s Deep Sea fishing also offers a lobster fishing demonstration during his deep-sea fishing tours. J - Valerie Flynn

As proud Islanders, we’re excited to share our stories, traditions, and way of life with the people who visit us. We want to make you feel at home here, like part of the family. Our Authentic PEI Experiences give you the chance to roll up your sleeves like a local. To help you navigate your life as an Islander, we have created a collection of certified Authentic PEI Experiences for you to choose from. Learn how to haul a lobster trap, bake bannock and clams using traditional Mi’Kmaq methods, cook with chefs at the prestigious Culinary Institute of Canada, or feel the rush of owning a standardbred race-horse for an evening. This is just a small taste of some of the activities you can take part in. Yes, you will get your hands dirty. You might also get your shoes wet. And your knees stained. All temporary, but the memory of your Island experiences will last a lifetime.

Beat of the Drum Experience

Kelly Richard

Q: We are visiting PEI and interested in seeing quilts made by Islanders. Are there such places we can see or buy quilts? - Chika M. A: Prince Edward Island has a large number of wonderful artisans, including many quilters. I would suggest visiting the Prince Edward Island Centre for Craft in Charlottetown. They have a large variety of quality handcrafted items including quilts. And while touring in the western part of the Island, I would also suggest visiting the Quilt Gallery, which is located in the community of O’Leary. J - Kelly Richard

the Island were the Mi’kmaq. They called the Island ‘Epekwitk’ which means “resting on the waves”. In 1534 the Island was discovered by Jacques Cartier and named ‘Île Saint-Jean’, only to be renamed in 1799 after the British occupied the Island and called it Prince Edward Island, in honour of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent. Charlottetown became known as the Birthplace of Confederation following the 1864 meeting where delegates from the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario and Québec met to discuss forming a nation. This historic event is kept alive as the Confederation Players stroll about Charlottetown throughout the summer and perform as the Fathers and Ladies of Confederation. Learn more about PEI’s Indigenous heritage by visiting the Mi’kmaq Cultural Centre and attending the Abegweit Pow Wow. Experience the life of French pioneers at Roma at Three Rivers.

Q: Where is the best place to learn about Mi’kmaq history and culture? - Nancy P. A: First, I suggest you contact the office of the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI in Charlottetown. Then a trip to beautiful Lennox Island to visit The Lennox Island Mi’kmaq Cultural Centre is an absolute must. The Centre has interpretive displays that explain the history, culture, language and spirituality of the Mi’kmaq.  Skmaqn– Port-la-Joye– Fort Amherst is also worth a visit. A Grand Alliance between the Mi’kmaq and the French was forged at this historical location. J - Peter Llewellyn

Elizabeth Jorgensen

Q: We are coming to PEI with two children under three. Can you help us figure out the best museums or sites we should visit? - Diane F. A: For museums, I would recommend Green Gables Heritage Place, the Acadian Museum, the Wyatt Heritage Properties, the Eptek Art & Culture Centre, Beaconsfield Historic House and the Story of Confederation Exhibit. Some other great ideas I suggest for PEI attractions would be Island Hill Farm, The Toy Factory, the Great Canadian Soap Co, the PEI Preserve Company, the Maroon Pig, Shorelines Design and the Cows Creamery just to name a few! J - Elizabeth Jorgensen

Discover traditions of long ago. Our provincial and community museums will take you back in time to explore our rich history. Whether you’re interested in planes, trains, automobiles, one-room schoolhouses, elegant mansions, the silver fox industry, or Mi’kmaq, Acadian or Celtic culture, our museums can bring the stories and the history of the Island to life. Some of the museums you discover have interesting histories themselves – including Elmira Railway Museum, Bideford Parsonage Museum and Green Park Shipbuilding Museum & Historic Yeo House. You can learn more about PEI museums by visiting www.peimuseum.com. Many of our museums are experience-based such as Roma at Three Rivers where you can learn how to bake traditional French bread, or step back in time at Orwell Corner Historic Village. While it’s great to live in the present – it can be fun to take a peek into the past. Find our complete list of museums at tourismpei.com/museums.

Q: We will visit your Island during our honeymoon. Where’s the best place to stay? We love food. What’s your unforgettable dish? - Ferrari A. A: Prince Edward Island is a perfect choice for a honeymoon! Some unforgettable food would be our lobster, oysters and mussels. There are so many accommodations on PEI that would suit a couple on their honeymoon, however, here’s a few of my favourites places; The Inn at Bay Fortune (Bay Fortune); West Point Lighthouse (West Point); Inn at the Pier (Stanley Bridge); and the Beach House Inn (French River). Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and have a great honeymoon on PEI! J - Kelly Richard

Lighthouses

Welcoming lights.

Raymond J. Arsenault

Q: Are there any lighthouses to visit on PEI? - Linda D. A: You’ll be in lighthouse heaven here! One of my favourites is the historic West Point Lighthouse. It’s the only structure on the Island that operates as both a lighthouse and an inn. The lighthouse also houses a gift shop, a restaurant and a small museum. And finally, my favourite place on earth to relax and reflect is the cape on which stands the lighthouse of my childhood, in Cap-Egmont. It’s very peaceful there, and it’s a great spot to watch fishermen haul lobster traps and other catches on board. J - Raymond J. Arsenault

Each lighthouse is a unique experience. You can spend the night at the West Point Lighthouse and enjoy waking up next to the ocean, or visit the Cape Bear Lighthouse, where some of the first distress calls from the Titanic were received.

From the top of a lighthouse is one of the best places to see the Island. The views are unforgettable. PEI has more than 60 lighthouses along our red shores, each more beautiful than the last, so have your camera ready! Many are still navigational today and eight of them are open to the public! You can tour them, shop in them and climb to the top of them. Be sure to visit different lighthouses and see the many landscapes of the Island or catch the sunset from a bird’s-eye view. We have created a whole tour for you lighthouse lovers 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.

Seasonal obsessions. Something to discover every season. Spring brings a bounty of fresh blooms; the seasonal shops open, and the waters begin to warm. In June, lupins make their appearance and the festival season kicks off! In summer enjoy the warm salt-air breeze and make a splash in the sea, or go for a challenging round of golf, and of course, enjoy our delicious fresh seafood. In the fall the Island is painted with bright orange, yellow and red that make hiking, cycling, festivals, and apple picking all the more enjoyable. The Fall Flavours Festival, which is dedicated to our culinary, runs the entire month of September and includes the popular PEI International Shellfish Festival. Winter brings a blanket of snow and cooler temperatures, perfect for snowshoeing, skiing, fatbiking and ice skating. In February, the Jack Frost Festival features ice sculptures, giant ice slides and family activities. No matter when you arrive on Prince Edward Island, you just won’t want to leave.

Q: We are contemplating a weekend trip in January. What is it like in January? Things to do in winter? With kids? - Tina G. A: We do see visitors here during the winter months. Many come to experience the snow. Average snowfall in January is 29 inches and the average temperature is -7 degrees C (19 F). For things to do, how about visiting the PEI National Park to hike or showshoe on a trail? Following that, you could visit  Island Hill Farm to visit the goats and bunnies (by appointment). You could also consider going on the self-guided tour of the Cows Creamery in Charlottetown before going on the Eckhart in the City  scavenger hunt. Also if snow conditions are right, Potts Sleigh Rides in beautiful Bonshaw can be a lot of fun. J - Kelly Richard

Camp out under the stars, cozy up next to a fireplace, go for bike rides and long walks. Every season on the Island is a memorable one. Visit tourismpei.com/pei-seasons.

• weaker swimmers and young children should wear a properlysized life jacket or personal flotation device (PFD) at all times. • ensure your children are supervised 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 (see diagram on page 54). Even the strongest swimmers can get into trouble if caught in a rip current.

To fully enjoy your beach experience please follow these tips: • always swim in supervised beach areas, see illustrated map on page 54. • 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.

to protect what they believe to be a special and magical place. The PEI Government is taking the lead in implementing a Sustainable Resource Policy. 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 found at tourismpei.com/pei-environment. Prince Edward Island is one of the global leaders in the development of wind energy. The Wind Energy Institute of Canada is located in North Cape, which is an area of the Island with an outstanding wind resource. The Island gets more than 30% of its electricity needs from renewable sources. SINGLE USE PLASTICS PEI businesses no longer distribute plastic checkout bags. Retailers have paper bags or reusable bags for purchase. The public is also encouraged to take their own bags.

OUR FRAGILE DUNES Our white-sand beaches are known for their spectacular natural sand dunes, but they are as fragile as they are beautiful. Always stay on designated paths and stairways to the beach to help protect the fragile dune systems. 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.

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. Be beach safe, see page 54. • some Island beaches are host to the nesting sites of the endangered Piping Plover. • marram grass holds our 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.

temperatures range from 8 to 22ºC (46 to 71ºF). Summer is hot, but rarely very humid. The daytime temperatures are usually in the 20s (70s) and can go as high as 32ºC (90ºF). The water at the beach is nice for swimming in July and August. Autumn is clear and bright. September afternoons can be quite warm, evenings are cool. Temperatures usually range from 8 to 22ºC (46 to 71ºF). Winter is crisp and clean. Temperatures usually range from -3 to -11ºC (26 to 12ºF).

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 that many have a canopy of trees. All are unpaved (so don’t attempt a drive too early in spring). These roads are

Mooney’s Pond 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 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.

PUBLIC NATURAL AREAS AND WETLANDS Our Island is rich in public lands which are open to the public for

hiking, biking, tours, outdoor education, hunting and fishing, where permitted. 33,000 hectares are set aside and managed for a combination of economic, social and environmental goals. Within the public lands, approximately 60 natural 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.

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. No more than 100 clams can be caught and retained per person, in any day, of all species combined including: bar clam, bay quahaug, soft-shell clam and razor clam. Quahaugs cannot be harvested on Sundays. Contact the Dept of Fisheries and Oceans at 902-566-7814 for more 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.

The Confederation Trail was developed on abandoned railway lines more than two decades 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 273 km.

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, cross-country skiing, fatbiking, or joining us for our winter carnivals and events. The Mark Arendz Provincial Ski Park at Brookvale 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. Or try the new winter trails at Rotary Friendship Park in Summerside.

The soil on PEI is red in colour due to iron oxide, which “rusts” on exposure to air.

A “canner” is a small but legal-size lobster often used for canning. “Canner” or “market” lobster are sold for fresh consumption. Lobster used to be known as poor man’s food.

There are over 500 oyster fishers on PEI! They harvest 8 million pounds of oysters per year. Oysters are really good for you–a great source of protein, and high in zinc!

The distance from tip to tip is 280 km (175 miles). Total land area 5,656 sq km (2,184 sq mi).

PEI’s population is 155,318. 68

The Island has over 10,000 acres of certified organic land to grow things such as grains, blueberries, herbs and vegetables.

On PEI, there are two lobster seasons. One in May/June and the second from mid-August to mid-October. 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.

Our provincial bird is the blue jay and our provincial flower is the Lady’s Slipper.

The Island Hymn was written by Lucy Maud Montgomery in 1908– she also wrote a novel you may have heard of… Anne of Green Gables!

CANADA SELECT

In each of the five colour-coded regions, accommodations are listed alphabetically according to their rating category. Most listings show a Canada Select rating (HHHHH), which is based on a set of nationally accepted standards. If you stay at a three-star property elsewhere in Canada, you will find a PEI three-star property comparable. Ratings measure a property’s facilities, services, quality and amenities.

Based on consumer research, the national rating program Canada Select revises the criteria it uses to assess accommodation properties and determine star ratings. Please read the property descriptions to ensure the amenities you are looking for are available. For more information see www.canadaselect.com. STAR CATEGORIES / DEFINITIONS: Hotel/Motel (H/M) – These properties offer private bath and a range of guest facilities, services and amenities. Resort (R) – Destination properties which offer extensive recreational activities, on-site dining and private bath as well as many additional services. Cottage (C) - Self-contained units offering private baths and cooking facilities (or provisions for dining on site).

Guest room is private. Bathrooms are exclusive to visitors and may be shared or private. Breakfast is available at B&Bs. Tourist Homes are not required to serve breakfast. Inn (I) - Properties offer breakfast and an evening meal on premises, and private en suite bath facilities. Some may use the term “inn” as part of their name, but are actually categorized as B&B.

CAMPING SELECT

Campgrounds are rated using a two-tier system: facilities/ services (F) evaluates entrance, laundry, restrooms, roadways, grounds, security, store, and general quality; recreation (R) evaluates programs, activities and recreational facilities, and is scored separately. For more information on the Camping Select Program see www.campingselect.ca.

ACCESSADVISOR.CA

Summerside is immersed in the diverse culture of its founding peoples: Mi’kmaq, Acadian, Scottish, Irish, English and United Empire Loyalists. It is heard in the speech, literature and music, and seen in the streetscapes, architecture and art. Summerside offers the amenities of urban life while surrounded by the beauty and tranquility found in the tree-lined streets and abundant parkland. The Confederation Trail runs through the heart of the city, while the beautiful green space in the Rotary

Friendship Park offers plenty of urban trails minutes from downtown. The 7-kilometre Baywalk meanders along the harbour shoreline through the business district and into a quiet woodland. The sunrise and sunset viewed from the water’s edge both invigorate and calm the soul. The city features historic buildings, museums, military history, an Acadian cultural centre, live theatre, dinner theatre, casino, concert venues, art and cultural festivals, segway tours, paddle boarding

and kayaking, outdoor murals, walking tours, and interpretative panels. Summerside’s diverse culture is well celebrated. No matter what your interest is, Summerside has something to enrich your Island vacation.

If you’re travelling to our Island via the Confederation Bridge, we invite you to take a deep breath of fresh ocean air when you arrive. 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 the Red Sands Shore region of the Central Coastal Drive, 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.

Treetop

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

This map does not contain all the place names and roads on the Island. For detailed information refer to the official full-size PEI Highway Map.

Tour Government House, take a hike on the trails at Skmaqn–Portla-Joye–Fort Amherst National Historic Site., visit the beautiful St. Simon & St. Jude Roman Catholic Church, or take the Historic Walking Tour of Georgetown.

Take in the Parks

Prince Edward Island has 14 day use provincial parks. These scenic spots are a wonderful place for outdoor adventures. Go swimming followed by a picnic near the beach or take a stroll through woodland trails and gaze at the local wildlife.

Events & Festivals

Have an Art Day

Painters, sculptors, jewelers - you can visit many artisans from one end of the Island to the other. Some will even be working while you wander through their studios.

Fireworks, live music, theatre, and carnivals are just some of the exciting events to attend.

Photo-op

Go Hiking

Take in some Tunes

During summer, take in the free concert series at Peakes Wharf or walk down Victoria Row to hear musicians play. The Confederation Centre Young Company puts on a free outdoor show on select days. In Summerside, Spinnakers’ Landing is a great spot to catch live music.

The Confederation Trail is 449 kms long and will take you across the Island. The Trail is great for walking, running, and biking. If you want more adventurous trails, you can go explore the Breadalbane Nature Trail, or the Boughton River Trail.

Pull over and capture a memory. PEI has so many beautiful things to photograph such as our red cliffs, rolling hills, harbour towns, miles of beaches, and over 50 lighthouses!

Charlottetown strikes a perfect balance, pairing small town charm with big city energy. With its romantic streetscapes, stunning water vistas and laidback Island lifestyle, this coastal city offers a welcome escape any time of year with live music, public art, theatre, and events. Charlottetown celebrates its ever-changing nature with inspired festivals, such as the award-winning Fall Flavours Festival, and showcases winter

with unique experiences, including snowshoeing from the doorstep of your accommodations, a traditional open-air Christmas market, and outdoor yoga in the city’s historic squares. The city brims with history, artistry and culture. Built for exploring on foot, it’s filled with a colourful mix of independent shops, restaurants, elegantly restored heritage buildings, and pristine green space (or white, depending on the season!).

Take pause to marvel at the public monuments that pay homage to the city’s proud history and unique role as the Birthplace of Confederation. Charlottetown’s diversity of restaurants, cafés and pubs feature menus inspired by the Island’s rich bounty from land and sea. And if you thirst for unique brews or java, you’ll happily find a bustling craft beer scene and various cafés offering hand-roasted coffee.

This map does not contain all the place names and roads on the Island. For detailed information refer to the official full-size PEI Highway Map.

Points East Coastal Drive is 475 kilometres (295 miles) of roads that meander along coastal roadways, through unique harbours and over rolling hills with picturesque farmland views. There are endless opportunities to stop, explore, take in the fresh air and enjoy the serene beauty. From East Point to Point Prim,

Cape Bear to Savage Harbour and everywhere in between, the area boasts fine eateries that feature the flavourful bounty harvested from the land and sea. Fill your days hiking or cycling trails; kayaking or sailing along the shore; swimming, fly fishing, shopping at the many artisan studios and exquisite handcraft shops, or exploring

local history at one of the many lighthouses or historic sites. At the end of the day, have a great night’s sleep at resort hotels, charming inns, welcoming bed & breakfasts, or a quiet cottage by the shore. If you prefer to camp out with fresh air and the stars overhead, check in to one of the provincial parks or private campgrounds.

POINTS EAST COASTAL DRIVE DISTANCES East Point to North Cape, 275 km (171 miles) Scotchfort to East Point, 104 km, (64 miles) East Point to Montague, 125 km, (78 miles) Montague to Cape Bear, 55 km, (36 miles) Cape Bear to Stratford, 86 km, (53 miles)

Points East Coastal Drive


Local Highlights 1

50 BEACHES AND SO MUCH MORE With more than 50 beaches to discover, Points East Coastal Drive will entice you to visit them all! There are beaches for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, clamming, beach glass and starfish hunting. Craving solitude and the ability to be one of a few people walking along a vast stretch of sand? Points East has that too! Our best known beach is Basin Head, a nine-mile stretch of magnificent white sand that ‘sings’. This beach was recently named ‘The Best Beach in Canada’ by Canadian Travel website vacay.ca.

CUISINE, WINE & SPIRITS Chef Michael Smith, the popular Food Network TV host, and his wife Chastity, owners of Fireworks Restaurant at The Inn at Bay Fortune, have spurred the development of a number of great restaurants across the region. Unique recipes, prize-winning chowder, and delectable desserts can be found at country inns, fish and chip stands, restaurants and cafés scattered throughout eastern PEI. For the full Island experience, pair your meal with fine wine from one of the local wineries, a beverage from a distillery or a cold craft beer from Copper Bottom Brewery or Bogside Brewery.

VISIT PEI NATIONAL PARK - GREENWICH Escape into a truly unique landscape. Experience a sense of awe and serenity as you take in the towering parabolic dune system and pristine white-sand beaches at Greenwich. An extensive trail system offers hiking and cycling opportunities, a wheelchair accessible loop, a floating boardwalk, and interpretive panels. Beachgoers enjoy the secluded expanse of soft sand and comfortable picnic areas, as well as a supervised swimming area. The Greenwich Interpretation Centre features interactive and multi-media displays.

EXPLORE OUR LIGHTHOUSES Lighthouse lovers will delight in the six lighthouses that are open to the public. Listen to the story of the Cape Bear Lighthouse receiving the distress signal from the Titanic; tour the Island’s oldest lighthouse at Point Prim; watch the ferry come and go from Wood Islands Lighthouse; view the town from the Souris Lighthouse and be entranced by the water at the East Point Lighthouse and Panmure Island Lighthouse.

A taste of what to see and do in the Points East Coastal Drive region.

ARTISANS AND SHOPPING In areas of natural beauty, great artists gather and eastern PEI is rich with both! We have potters, quilters, painters, jewellery makers, glass artists and knitters. Plan to visit a few of the artisan studios, woolen mills, and artists cooperatives such as Artisans on Main in Montague and Souris.
