“One cannot think well, sleep well, love well, if one has not dined well.” - Virginia Woolf Reservations recommended

Welcome to the heart of Prince Edward Island – the Central Coastal Region. Everything you need for a fabulous vacation is sandwiched between the vibrant Northumberland Strait to the south and the cradling Gulf of St. Lawrence to the north. If you are returning to our shores, as so many do, you already know that our Island is a treasure trove of culture, history, beauty, nature and adventure. If this is your first time coming “home” to PEI, you are in for a real treat.

How does welcome, warm, safe, rejuvenated and enriched sound? Let this booklet and our website centralcoastalpei.com, guide you as you explore everything to love about PEI’s Central Coastal Region. Above all, make yourself at home!

We Islanders are authentic – what you see is what you get. So when we say we love company, we really mean it. When it comes right down to it, our “Islandness” is what sets us apart – and nowhere is that more true than in the Central Coastal Region.

WINNER Local Food Award

Sharing a meal that is fresh, creative & visual, in a relaxing ambiant setting is simply the way it should be.

In our midst, you will find that your Island vacation is less about what you see and do (although there is lots to fill your days and nights) and more about how you feel.

Did you know? You and 1.5 million other folks will visit our Island this year? Not all at once, of course! That’s more than nine visitors for every Islander. Post a photo on social media using the hashtag #WeLovePEI, and be eligible for contests & giveaways between May 1 & October 31, 2019!

You are never far from a supervised beach on Prince Edward Island. In West Prince Surf lifeguards are on duty at Jacques Cartier and Cedar Dunes Provincial Park beaches throughout the summer months. In certain conditions powerful rip currents can occur that can sweep swimmers away from shore. Follow these important tips if you are caught in a rip current: • Don’t panic. • Swim parallel to the shore to remove yourself from the current. • Do not try to swim against the current. For information on conditions at all supervised provincial park beaches visit www.tourismpei.com/beachreports

Outdoor Adventure

Outdoor adventure on PEI comes in many forms - seadoing at Pier Watersports in Stanley Bridge, horsing around at Venture Stables in Freetown, or zipping 30 feet off the ground at Rise & Climb Adventure Course (Ad pgs. 16 & 33) in Cornwall. By the Sea Kayaking offers bicycle rentals, and many of our accommodations have bike programs as well. And you can rent electric bicycles at the Cavendish Car Wash!

Prince Edward Island National Park parkscanada.gc.ca/pei • 888-773-8888 Brackley/Stanhope/Dalvay Gulf Shore Parkway, located off Rte. 15 This area of the National Park provides supervised white sand beaches, picnic areas, washroom facilities, and multiple walking, running, and cycling trails.

Facilities at the newly opened site include a new washroom that uses green technology and a peaceful setting for picnicking and enjoying nature. Skmaqn–Port-la-Joye–Fort Amherst National Historic Site, Off Route 19 Skmaqn–Port-la-Joye–Fort Amherst National Historic Site of Canada commemorates the first permanent European settlement on Prince Edward Island.

The World of L. M. Montgomery & Anne of Green Gables L.M. Montgomery is one of Canada’s most cherished authors, and author of Anne of Green Gables, published in 1908 to widespread acclaim from audiences around the world. All but one of her 20 books are set on Prince Edward Island. Besides the Anne book, can you name other novels written by L.M. Montgomery? A few places to learn more about this world-renowned author, her life and work: At Green Gables Heritage Place, one of Canada’s most beloved works of literature comes to life. Spend an afternoon with Anne herself, enjoy an oldfashioned Sunday picnic, or explore landmarks from the book like the Haunted Woods and Lover’s Lane. Experience the enduring story of an orphan girl who came from away and changed the Island forever in Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™, returning to the Charlottetown Festival at the Confederation Centre of the Arts for its 55th consecutive summer. Just steps away from Montgomery’s birthplace in New London, experience Marilla’s Table, a culinary cooking class at The Table Culinary Studio. Using the Anne novels and L.M. Montgomery’s own cookbook as inspiration, participants will create a delicious meal of traditional PEI recipes. At the Anne of Green Gables Museum in Park Corner, enjoy Matthew’s Carriage Ride with “Matthew” as your guide and driver where you will view the Lake of Shining Waters. Let one of our lodging establishments do the planning for you with an Anne or Montgomery accommodation package. Or stay at a property that includes a book reference in its name - Anne’s Windy Poplars, Cavendish Bosom Buddies, and Kindred Spirits Country Inn are a few. See Places to Stay on page 10. 18

Best Views of the Confederation Bridge We are home to the spectacular 13 km Confederation Bridge. Overlooking the full expanse of the Northumberland Strait where it meets our Red Sands Shore, it brings you to the green fields and red roads of the Island. Completed in 1997, the bridge stands sentinel across the clean blue waters that separate Prince Edward Island from neighbouring New Brunswick. One of the world’s longest bridges, it is a marvel of engineering. Its location posed many unique challenges in its design and construction. To experience the bridge in all its majesty, or to capture the perfect photo of a vacation memory with the bridge as the backdrop, we’ve selected these great sites:

Boeing Boeing is a riotous farce about a successful architect named Bernard who is juggling three flight attendant fiancées – an American, an Italian and a German. Unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris, and Bernard’s apartment, at the same time. A non-stop comedy and a romp of international proportions. Warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative, Crimes of the Heart teems with humanity and humour as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions. With warm-hearted laughs and touching family moments, the sisters forgive the past, face the present, and embrace the future in this contemporary American stage classic. For the 2nd year in a row, the Play Reading Series will showcase new work in development by PEI playwrights. Three new, unpublished, and unproduced plays will be chosen and read by the Watermark’s company of actors during the month of August. The Classic Music Reignited series returns, curated once again by Rob Oakie. As always, Island musical artists interpret classic composers in a way that you have never heard before.

Mi’kmaq Confederacy at Cavendish Destination Centre As PEI’s first people, there is much to discover about the vibrant Mi’kmaq community in Prince Edward Island. Visitors can get a taste of authentic Mi’kmaq culture at the Indigenous cultural tourism space found in the Cavendish Destination Centre. Developed by the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI, on behalf of the Lennox Island First Nation and Abegweit First Nation, the space allow visitors to experience the culture first-hand – engaging with Mi’kmaw artisans through product displays, demonstrations, and performances.

Bonshaw Hills Provincial Park The main trail was named Ji’ka’we’katik Trail - after the traditional Mi’kmaq name for the West River. Ji’ka’we’katik (Pronounced - Jih Ga Way Ga Dig) means “the place where bass are plentiful” in Mi’kmaq.

Skmaqn–Port-la-Joye–Fort Amherst Originally established by the French in 1720, Skmaqn–Port-la-Joye–Fort Amherst commemorates the first permanent European settlement on Île Saint-Jean (today Prince Edward Island). After falling to British forces in 1758 it became the site of a major deportation of French and Acadian settlers. A Grand Alliance was forged here between the Mi’kmaq and French - one of only two locations in North America where this was celebrated annually with speeches, gifting and feasting. The fort’s grassy ruins are still visible, and interpretive panels explore its rich history. The grounds also offer superb views of the surrounding countryside and Charlottetown Harbour.
