One of a kind.

People visit Prince Edward Island looking for unique experiences, and that certainly applies to the artwork and crafts created here. If it’s something specific you’re after, you’ll likely find it being made somewhere on the Island. Our skilled craftspeople are busy year-round, producing one-of-a-kind treasures you simply won’t find anywhere else. Our mills have woven creations made from the wool of their very own sheep and alpaca; the assortment of sweaters, mittens, hats, scarves, blankets, and rugs is breathtaking. Pottery studios display and sell decorative and functional items. Seasoned woodworkers are turning cups and bowls, and producing carved masterpieces, even as you read this. Stained glass, wrought iron, handmade soaps? It’s all here. Painting, sculpture, photography, prints? How much time do you have? Watch the artisans as they work. Tour their workshops. Take a PEI Studio Tour (peistudios.ca). Or sign up for an Authentic PEI Experience (see page 74) and try your hand at creating your own unique reminder of this one-of-a-kind place.

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

Welcome!

Our Island experience is waiting for you.

As premier of Prince Edward Island, I would like to welcome you to our beautiful province. The green pastoral landscape and water views make our Island way of life unique. They also allow us to produce some of the tastiest food experiences found globally. I invite you to experience Prince Edward Island’s culture. Attend one of our many festivals and events, and discover our rich artistic talent and friendly hospitality. Prince Edward Island has welcomed visitors of all ages for many years, creating authentic Island experiences for everyone to enjoy. This visitor’s guide will help you plan your personal memorable Prince Edward Island vacation. We look forward to being your hosts this year!

Our miles of sandy beaches are some of the best in the world. Our rich culture and heritage offer much to be seen and explored. And our warm hospitality sets us apart. There’s an Authentic PEI Experience for everyone–play a round of golf at an award-winning course; learn how an artisan creates their one-of-a-kind craft; and sample some of the finest culinary products, fresh from the farm and sea. On behalf of all Islanders, I invite you to explore our province from tip to tip– from North Cape to East Point. Fill your days with a scenic coastal tour, an evening of theatre or a fun-filled family activity. Make Prince Edward Island your next vacation destination. Discover why our visitors are already booking their return visit before they leave.

Visitors tips Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or fine cuisine, the right meal is right here. ONE > Order the seafood– the lobster, mussels and oysters can’t get any fresher! TWO > Cows Ice Cream has over 32 flavours served in handmade waffle cones, created one at a time! THREE > The Fall Flavours Festival in September features celebrity guest chefs and a wide range of unique culinary experiences. FOUR > The Wind & Reef Restaurant at North Cape. Enjoy a panoramic view of the ocean while dining. FIVE > Potatoes, yes potatoes! The PEI potato has a unique flavour because of our rich red soil.

Culinary

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

There’s no better way to inspire envy among your shellfish-loving friends than to tell them you dined on the freshest possible PEI mussels. But if you’re looking to really impress them, discuss the distinction between Malpeques and Raspberry Points, or between Colville Bays and Lucky Limes. These and more “boutique” oyster brands can be enjoyed at many of our local restaurants and pubs.

Golf

Pure golf heaven. When the earliest Scottish

fC

ou r

se

settlers arrived on Prince Edward Island in the eighteenth century, they had no time to think about golf, a game their ancestors helped invent. Nor could they have imagined that PEI would one day become Canada’s most popular golf destination. But pros and amateurs from all over North America have been enjoying our courses for years. And now the rest of the world is starting to take notice. Was it our breathtaking scenery, the quality and variety of our courses, or the value and convenience of playing here? All of the above, and more. Whether you’re a beginner, a regular player, or dreaming of turning professional, you’ll find just the right course, and fees lower than you might expect. And remember, PEI is Canada’s smallest province, so you’re never far from beaches, restaurants, theatre, or any of our 33 stunning courses. We’re sure that no matter where you’ve played before, your favourite round of golf is waiting for you somewhere on Prince Edward Island. For complete information, visit www.tourismpei.com/pei-golf.

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

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

Protected by the Northumberland Strait, the south shore tends to have the warmest water and reddish sand. The north shore faces the Gulf of St. Lawrence, with rolling surf and white sand. Over on the eastern shore there’s even a beach with singing sand! PEI National Park pictured here.

Visitors tips Experience Prince Edward Island culture first hand! ONE > Visit Green Gables Heritage Place. This home inspired famous author Lucy Maud Montgomery to write Anne of Green Gables. TWO > Enjoy the evening ceilidh at Orwell Corner Historic Village. THREE > Visit the Acadian Museum in La Région Évangéline for a taste of Acadian history and culture. FOUR > The West Point Lighthouse Museum displays an extensive collection of lighthouse artifacts. FIVE > At Founders’ Hall in historic Charlottetown you can relive our nation’s history through displays, multimedia and holovisuals.

History Our history comes alive. The history of Prince Edward Island is like a rope made of intertwined strands. Each of those strands can be traced back to its roots: First Nations, French, English, Irish, and Scottish. Archeologists have found evidence of early Mi’kmaq settlements that date back thousands of years. Be sure to visit the Lennox Island Mi’kmaq Cultural Centre, as well as the annual Abegweit Pow Wow in August, to learn more about PEI’s aboriginal heritage. The earliest European settlers began arriving in the sixteenth century, and their influence is still evident in the names found on mailboxes, as well as the prevalence of Acadian and Celtic music and dance. A trip to La Région Évangéline will introduce you to the tumultuous history of the French pioneers. Then relive the birth of Canadian Confederation and all its drama by touring Province House National Historic site and Founders’ Hall, where you’ll see and hear how the new nation began to take shape in Charlottetown in 1864. Be sure to stay tuned as we plan celebrations in 2014 for the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference! See more on page 154. www.pei150.com

Family

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

Visitors tips Family fun is found on the Island from tip to tip! Here are a few ideas: ONE > Beaches perfect for playing, sandcastles, beachcombing or strolling. Red Point pictured above. TWO > The Bottle Houses, in Cap-Egmont features life-size buildings made of 25,000 bottles! THREE > The Blacklight Indoor Mini Golf is fun for all ages! FOUR > Have a unique family picture done at Grandpa’s Antique Photo. FIVE > PEI National Park has special programs, activities and events planned to celebrate their 75th anniversary on PEI.

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

Visitors tips From water parks to sandcastles, this is the place for family fun. ONE > At North Cape Wind Energy Centre get up close to the giant windmills and visit the interpretive centre to learn about wind energy. TWO > At Avonlea Village travel back in time and surround yourself with PEI’s favourite story, Anne of Green Gables. THREE > Basin Head Day Park features a lifeguarded white-sand beach, a gift shop and ice cream stand. FOUR > Burlington Amusement Park features three go-cart tracks including one with Kiddy Karts! FIVE > Cows Creamery Factory Tours to see Cows ice cream being made and, maybe best of all, have a sample!

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

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

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

Visitors tips Even after a hundred years, Anne shows no sign of slowing down. Here are a few tips for ideas to keep up with her: ONE > Explore the house or even walk the Haunted Wood, at Green Gables Heritage Place in PEI National Park. TWO > Shop at the Anne of Green Gables Store and take home a special memory. THREE > Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™ has been thrilling Anne fans for 48 years. FOUR > Enjoy a day of family fun at Avonlea Village in Cavendish. FIVE > Visit the Lucy Maud Montgomery Birthplace in New London.

Every year is the “Year of Anne” on Prince Edward Island! Come visit and take in activities like Anne parties, festivals, live theatre, exhibitions and music concerts. You can also mingle with characters from the novel at Avonlea Village, shown here.

Visitors tips Here are some specific ideas for stretching your legs–and arms! ONE > Try a walking trail: Bubbling Springs in Dalvay; MacPhail Woods in Orwell; and Black Marsh Trail at North Cape to name a few. TWO > Cycle from Mount Stewart to St. Peters on the Confederation Trail. Enjoy the views of St. Peters Bay. THREE > Go camping and end the day with a campfire after the sun sets. FOUR > Learn to kayak! Tours are available whether you’re a beginner or an experienced paddler. FIVE > Beachcombing is a popular and relaxing activity for all ages.

Outdoors Take it outside! People here always seem to be heading outside. Maybe that’s because there’s so much to do out there. It’s a cyclist’s paradise, with gently rolling hills and gorgeous scenery that seems to change at every turn. For hikers, there’s plenty of wilderness. And walkers and runners love the Confederation Trail’s 357 kilometres (221 miles) of flat, groomed surface. Of course, there’s plenty of golf. Are you more of a water person? Prince Edward Island is a canoeing, kayaking, boating dream, with countless bays, coves, and inlets to explore. We have deep-sea and freshwater fishing, with many guided and charter services available. And if you still haven’t had enough maritime activity, there’s snorkeling, swimming, seal-watching, and even parasailing. Remember, our waters are the warmest you’ll find north of the Carolinas. And our beaches are pristine and uncrowded. No matter how you spend your day, the perfect ending is a night in one of our many campgrounds, where fresh air and the sound of waves will lull you to a well-earned sleep. Be sure to get plenty of rest: there’s still a lot more to do out there.

Visitors tips Seven of Prince Edward Island’s lighthouses are open to the public–why not take a day or two and follow our Lighthouse Lover’s Tour? ONE > At the East Point Lighthouse you can climb to the top to see the view; it’s more than worth the effort! TWO > The Victoria Rangelight houses two different lights. THREE > The Point Prim Lighthouse is PEI’s only round lighthouse. FOUR > The Wood Islands Lighthouse (pictured above) is part of the Lighthouse Treasures Festival. FIVE > Tour inside the Cape Bear Lighthouse, where the first distress signals from the Titanic were heard.

Lighthouses Welcoming lights. Whether you’re approaching from sea or land, a lighthouse is a welcome sight. It helps guide boats to safety, calling out through darkness, fog, and storm. It represents stability, as strong and reliable as the rock it stands upon. It’s unique and beautiful, reaching into the sky with silent grace, like a needle pinning shore to ocean. And it offers a view like no other, unmarred by buildings and billboards. There is nothing else in the world quite like them, and if you’re one of those people who’s inexplicably drawn to lighthouses, you’ve come to the right place. Prince Edward Island has more than 50 of these structures dotting its ragged coastline. More than 40 still function as navigational aids, and seven are open to the public. The lighthouses of PEI: different heights and shapes, varying colours and designs. Each is unique, with its own history and story to tell. But they do share one common element. They all offer their welcoming light.

Ro c

o ky P

int

The lighthouse at West Point (shown here) is well-known for its distinctive black and white stripes and the beautiful beach it overlooks. But you may not know that it’s open to the public, and includes nine guestrooms, gift shop and a museum! Several other PEI lighthouses feature gift shops, where you just may discover that perfect treasure to take back home.

Papa Joe’s is operated by Barb, Jo-Anne, and John Jabbour, who were thrilled with the recognition of their good food and their 40-year commitment to buying local. Their father Joe Jabbour actually pedaled the countryside when he first began, and established strong relationships with Island producers that have lasted throughout the years. Inside the doors of this family style operation is a relaxed atmosphere coupled with delightful food and drink, and the mastery of Island-born chef, Irwin MacKinnon (pictured here with Barb). Irwin is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of Canada and has worked and traveled extensively in Europe, Asia and the US. Papa Joe’s menu changes with the availability of the seasons, but the family’s ongoing passion for freshness, beautifully seasoned seafood, meats, and some of the tastiest comfort cuisine, remains constant. Papa Joe’s restaurant is located at 345 University Avenue in Charlottetown.

The Award The Taste Our Island Award is presented annually to a PEI restaurant that achieves an outstanding level of excellence while using and promoting local products. See more at peiadapt.com.

TWO > The drive past Cape Wolfe to the beach and lighthouse at West Point will showcase some magnificent cliff views.

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

It’s a question that gets asked quite frequently: “When is the best time to visit Prince Edward Island?” Most visitors arrive in the summer, and for many the Island means golf, beaches, and water sports. The winter is a given, although you may be surprised to learn we have downhill skiing, as well as tubing and cross-country skiing. The Jack Frost Festival and a few nights at a cozy inn make a perfect winter getaway. In the spring the earth awakens with crocuses, tulips, daffodils, lupins, and the Lady’s Slipper. And as spring slides into summer’s warmth, PEI explodes with Island Fusion, a seventeen-day celebration of our diverse culture with traditional music, dance, arts and crafts, theatre, and much more. This will be a province-wide event and promises to become a yearly favourite (www.tourismpei.com/fusion). And speaking of favourites, the Fall Flavours Festival (see page 71) eases the passing of summer with a series of culinary offerings–cooking boot camps, tasting events, and hands-on activities–all featuring fresh PEI ingredients and set against a colourful autumn backdrop. When is the best time to visit Prince Edward Island? Take your pick!

of Prince Edward Island and you’ll see a lot of green. Of course: this is the “Garden Province.” But even within the green are speciallydesignated lands that honour and preserve the natural wonders. National, provincial, and community parks. Many are for day-use, while others include campgrounds. Some offer interpretive programs related to the local wildlife, or host special events. Trails abound. They include some of our most popular beaches. Open spaces for outdoor sports, picnics, exploration, and leisurely walks are plentiful. Our Provincial Parks dot the coastline, offering beach access and some unforgettable views of the surrounding waters. Some include museums and heritage sites. In 2012, the Prince Edward Island National Park celebrates its 75th anniversary with a series of special programs and events. Stretching across 60 kilometres of the North Shore, the park includes seven supervised beaches, as well as cultural treasures such as the Green Gables House and Dalvay-by-the-Sea National Historic Sites. Our parks are filled with wonders–protected, preserved, and available for all to share.

On our Island province you are never far from the ocean and one of our numerous spectacular beaches. From the red sand beaches on the South Shore to the white sand beaches on the North Shore, Prince Edward Island offers

Panmure Island

a variety of unique and enjoyable beach experiences. Enjoying the warm waters surrounding the Island is a very popular activity. To fully enjoy your beach experience please follow these tips: • always swim in supervised beach areas. • ensure your children are

supervised at all times. • never swim alone. Always swim with a buddy and watch out for each other. • do not consume alcohol or drugs before or while swimming. Alcohol and drugs impair your abilities and judgment. • weaker swimmers and young children should wear a properly-sized life jacket or personal flotation device (PFD) at all times. • pay close attention to surf conditions. Waves and currents can make water more dangerous than usual. Swimming in the ocean is very different from swimming in a pool or lake. The strength and force of even small ocean waves can surprise beach goers who are unfamiliar with the power of the sea. When particular surf conditions are present at some of our beaches, rip currents can occur. Rip currents are powerful and can pull people away from shore. Even the strongest swimmers can get into trouble if caught in a rip current. Do not panic if this happens to you; relax and swim parallel to the shore to get out of the current; then swim back to shore. Do not attempt to swim back to shore against the current; it is too strong. Ask your lifeguard for more information when you arrive at the beach. Surf conditions are available by calling toll free 1-800-463-4PEI. PEI National Park beaches provide lifeguard service. Supervised Provincial Park

beaches include: Jacques Cartier, Cedar Dunes, Chelton Beach, Northumberland, Cabot Beach, Basin Head, Red Point, and Panmure Island. OUR FRAGILE DUNES

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

HISTORY AT A GLANCE

Today most Islanders are descendants of Europeans; however, PEI’s first residents were the Mi’kmaq. The Mi’kmaq first lived here about 2000 years ago. They called the Island ‘Epekwitk’, meaning “resting on the waves”. European settlers pronounced the name as ‘Abegweit’. French explorers were the first Europeans to visit and settle the Island. Jacques Cartier described the Island as “...the fairest land ‘tis possible to see!” The French called the Island ‘Île Saint-Jean.’ To the British, who later occupied the area, the Island was known as ‘St. John’s Island.’ The Island was renamed in 1799 as ‘Prince Edward Island’ in honour of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, the father of Queen Victoria. In 1758, under British control, the Island was annexed to Nova Scotia, and Captain Samuel Holland was later commissioned to survey the land. He divided the Island into 67 townships of 20,000 acres each. In a great lottery held in London, England, English merchants and military figures were granted large parcels of property in the colony. The colony was separated from Nova Scotia in 1769, but land issues continued for over 100 years until after confederation when the Island Government was able to purchase the last of the

distances. Radar detectors are illegal on PEI and will be confiscated. Seatbelts are required for adults and safety restraints for children. It is illegal to use hand-held, wireless electronic devices while driving on PEI. Bicycle helmets are mandatory for all cyclists on Prince Edward Island roads and on the Confederation Trail.

large estate lots for resale to tenants. Following the American War of Independence, many of those loyal to the British Crown moved north, some making the Island their home. The 18th and 19th centuries saw the arrival of many British settlers, including Scottish and Irish emigrants fleeing economic problems in their homeland. The Island prospered in the wood, wind and water economy of the mid 1800s and communities and colonial institutions expanded. The Charlottetown Conference, one of the most significant political events in Canadian history, was held in 1864 to discuss the idea of Canadian union. The conference led to Canada officially becoming a nation in 1867. Prince Edward Island became a province of Canada in 1873 after negotiations that promised a continuous link to the mainland. Prince Edward Island is proud to be Canada’s smallest province! INTERESTING SITES

Scenic Heritage Roads

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

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.

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. Specific questions should be directed to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans at (902) 566-7812. Please be mindful that this resource is also a vibrant commercial fishery on PEI and conservation is important.

ISLAND parks

Prince Edward Island is home to a wide variety of parkland. Visitors and residents alike are never far from one of our 27 Provincial Parks, each with its own unique landscape, features, and natural wonders. Eleven of the Provincial Parks include campgrounds, which perfectly complement the many private campgrounds that can be found in this Guide. If you choose to spend the night to complete your magical day, you’ll find everything you need to keep all of your campers happy. In fact, PEI Provincial Parks contain or are accessible to some of the Island’s most prized beachfront locations. Try your hand at clam digging or take a leisurely stroll along the shore. Swimmers are encouraged to visit any of the eight Provincial Parks that offer lifeguard services. All of our parks

Confederation Trail

are ideal for picnics, family reunions, or just getting back to nature. Several include Museums and Heritage Sites. In 2012, we’re celebrating the 75th anniversary of Prince Edward Island National Park, a sixty-kilometre stretch of the Island’s north shore that will both thrill and soothe your senses. There are plenty of special programs, events, and activities planned–and you’re invited. The National Park includes seven supervised beaches, the unforgettable dunes at Greenwich, scenic forest trails, and a historic golf course that will challenge the most experienced players. The Island has dozens of

Red Point Provincial Park

smaller community parks, as well, which you can use as your destination or as a place to stop and rest along the way. Each is an oasis of beauty and comfort, a place to revisit nature and feed your spirit. And isn’t that why you came to Prince Edward Island in the first place? TRAVELing by RV?

The Island is a special treat for people who travel here by recreational vehicle as the roads are quiet and there are many parks and campgrounds equipped for RVs. Check the campground listings (see The Index, page 186) as well as www.tourismpei.com/ parks for more details. ON THE TRAILS

PEI is the first province to complete its section of the TransCanada Trail. The Confederation Trail was developed on abandoned railway lines more than a decade ago. The Trail is

surfaced with finely crushed rock dust and is quite smooth and almost flat, making it easily negotiated on foot or by bicycle. The full tip-to-tip distance on the Trail (Tignish to Elmira) is 274 kilometres. The Trail passes along the sea shore, by farm pastures and woodlots, and through many small communities. The Confederation Trail is a true all-season attraction as it is turned over to snowmobilers in winter. There are several branch trails that lead to places like Souris, Montague and BordenCarleton. Visit tourismpei.com/ confederation-trail/map for a downloadable trail map or pick up a printed map at a Visitor Information Centre or call 1-800-463-4PEI. There are also many community and historical trails for you to discover. The Black Marsh Trail is a bilingual coastal nature trail at North Cape that provides

interpretive displays on local fishing, birds, and the Phantom Ghost Ship legend. The Dromore Trail, located south of Mount Stewart, is a challenging hiking only trail, great for birdwatching and has bridges and boardwalks. The MacPhail Woods Trail at Orwell provides you with easy garden walks to more challenging woodland hikes, while you pass historic homestead buildings. PEI National Park has two multi-use paved trails along our beautiful northshore beaches. One stretches 10 km from Dalvay to Brackley, the second from Cavendish to

North Rustico. They are great for running, cycling or rollerblading. Also in the Brackley to Dalvay area are the Woodlands and Reeds & Rushes (wheelchair accessible) trails. And close by are the Farmlands and Bubbling Springs trails. These trails feature a pioneer cemetery as well as lookouts that provide panoramic views of long pond. The Homestead Trail in Cavendish is a mixed-surface looped trail that travels through farmland and along the shore of New London Bay.

GREEN ISLAND

As a small island province, Prince Edward Island depends on the land and the sea as the basis for its three primary industries– farming, tourism and the fishery. All three of these industries are inter-dependent, 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. The Prince Edward Island 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 Wildlife Habitat Improvement Program that provides support to communities to enhance streams and forests. • 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 tourism pei.com/pei-environment.

NICE TO KNOW!

Family TiME!

Also Known As Abegweit is the Mi’kmaq word for Prince Edward Island, often interpreted as “land cradled on the waves.” Other monikers include Garden of the Gulf, Million-acre Farm, Kentucky of Canada, The Island!, and “the fairest land ‘tis possible to see” (according to Jacques Cartier in 1534). Lobster lore In PEI, lobster is fished in May and June and from mid-August to October. A “canner” is a small but legal-size lobster used for canning. Lobster sold for fresh consumption is “market lobster.” A “cork” is a hired hand on a fishing vessel, especially a lobster boat. At one time, lobster was

considered poor man’s food. Lobsters are naturally red in colour caused by a carotenoid pigment similar to that found in carrots. Some Island farmers put crushed lobster shells on their fields as fertilizer.   Other shellfish Male mussels are a light creamy colour while female

The Bottle Houses

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? For information on where to find the freshest seafood visit peiflavours.ca.   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. • Naufrage was named after several shipwrecked sailors who settled in the area (Naufrage is the French word for “shipwreck”). • 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.

Throwing a few pieces of firewood into the trunk of the car before a camping trip might seem like a good idea, but those logs could destroy a forest. Firewood can carry small but harmful hitchhikers that are often hidden in the bark or wood. The damage caused by invasive species such as the emerald ash borer can expand exponentially when they get rides from families on vacation. In fact, the emerald ash borer has killed millions of ash trees across Canada. Animals and birds can

Rest assured! Tourism operators in PEI are committed to the quality and cleanliness of their properties. Islanders take great pride and time to ensure your accommodation or camping site is comfortable and well maintained. All accommodations and camping sites listed in this Guide have been inspected to ensure they meet the province’s and industry’s standards. Before booking a property not listed in this Guide, please confirm that it is licensed and inspected. A list of all PEI licensed

accommodations can be found at www.gov.pe.ca/go/ licensed_accommodations. Look for a posted license prior to check-in. It is your assurance that cleanliness and standards of comfort have been met. Our www.tourismpei.com website is updated regularly. New properties are added throughout the year, as they are licensed. Disclaimer: Information contained in this Guide has been supplied by operators and accuracy of descriptions is not guaranteed. Details

included in listings are meant to assist consumers in making choices. PUBLISHED RATES Rental rate information for many accommodation properties listed in the Visitor’s Guide is presented as a low to high range; and for the most part will be the rate charged. However, rates charged are at the discretion of the operator and may change at any time, based on market conditions. Prices are listed in Canadian dollars. Cancellation and deposit policies vary and are set by the individual operator. Always check these policies prior to booking. ONLINE BOOKING The rates posted on www.tourismpei.com/book are guaranteed by the operator at time of purchase. CANADA SELECT In each of the five colourcoded regions, accommodations are listed alphabetically according to their rating category. Most listings show a Canada Select rating, which is based on a set of nationally accepted

standards. If you stay at a three-star property elsewhere in Canada, you will find PEI three-star properties comparable. Ratings measure a property’s facilities, services, quality and amenities. The rating program is voluntary and some operators choose not to participate; an unrated property does not imply low standards. 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 descriptions to ensure the amenities you are looking for are available at the property you choose. For more information see www.canadaselect.com. CATEGORIES AND STAR DEFINITIONS: Resort (R) – Destination properties which offer extensive recreational activities, on-site dining and private bath as well as many additional services. Hotel/Motel (H/M) – These properties offer private bath and a range of guest facilities, services and amenities.


Cottage (C) - Self-contained units offering private baths and cooking facilities (or provisions for dining on site). Units may be detached or linked, and include houses and housekeeping apartments, suites, apartments, condos and vacation homes. 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 (or Breakfast Inn).

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. Camping Select is a voluntary rating program in which some operators choose to participate. For more information go to www.campingselect.ca.

accessadvisor.ca This enhanced program verifies and designates accessibility levels; it consists of four designations and is applied to all types of businesses, tourism operation/ experience – indoor or out – as well as communities and public/private facilities. Accessadvisor.ca is a voluntary program and all participating locations have been visited to confirm their access level. Please contact the business directly to ensure your specific needs can be met.

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

Festival featuring many of the best country artists; garden concerts and even a ceilidh on the water! Here theatre productions abound at the Victoria

Playhouse, Charlottetown Festival, Montgomery Theatre, and the Kings Playhouse to mention a few. In this section you will find our events broken into three

Tour the Island

72

This Island was made for touring. Look for red sandstone cliffs, scenic fishing villages, towering sand dunes and quaint family farms. While it is perfectly feasible to get in your car or on your bike and make your way around the Island, why not take it easy and have someone else do the planning? And the booking and driving! The tour companies listed in this section have experience in arranging a first-class Prince Edward Island tour that might last as short as an afternoon or as long as a week. Want to get out in the great outdoors, but don’t plan to bring a bike or a kayak? Then our adventure

tours are the easy way to paddle and pedal your way around the province with experienced guides and quality equipment. Maybe you want to practice English as a second language,

or learn a bit more about Island culture. Or perhaps all you require is a general sightseeing itinerary, with or without a driver and guide.

Take a look through the listings here; you just might be surprised by all the possibilities!

Prince Edward Island has countless bays and inlets for you to discover. Add sand-drenched beaches and magnificent cliffs and you have the recipe for perfect touring.

The natural phenomena of North Cape –its age-old patterns of winds and tides–are what actually caused the formation of PEI’s famed north shore beaches over the millennia.

Skyline Trail, Cape Breton Highlands National Park of Canada

Angelo’s Nova Scotia

W

e are blessed with awesome natural beauty all around this province, from breathtaking ocean views and stunning inland rivers and lakes to pristine Acadian forests. Every trip is different. Every trip is exhilarating. And when people come to visit, it can change their entire attitude.

My favourite adventures There is so much to do up in the Highlands of Cape Breton, you could spend weeks exploring and still not cross everything off your list. The Skyline Trail boasts seven kilometers of breathtaking views with frequent sightings of wildlife from moose and fox to whales just offshore. All along the Cabot Trail, you will find great spots for golfing, hiking, kayaking, whale-watching, camping and just plain exploring.

More of my favourites • Raft the roller coaster rapids of the tidal bore on the Shubenacadie River • Tour the waters off Yarmouth and see whales, porpoises, seals and dolphins • Spend a day meandering through the shops, museums and restaurants along the Halifax Waterfront

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

Confederation Bridge, one of the longest bridges in the world. The 13-kilometre trip takes only

10 minutes but if you’d like more time to appreciate the graceful bridge structure itself, and a chance

The rolling terrain of Red Sands Shore region lends itself perfectly to scenic touring and a favourite way to enjoy the Island’s pastoral landscape is to follow some of our Scenic Heritage Roads. These unpaved roads will take you well off the beaten path and into an earlier time in our history.

It’s easy to enjoy all four seasons in the Red Sands Shore region. When it’s too cool for our beaches and campgrounds, it’s a great time to take a walk in the woods, or venture down

No matter the season, the warmth of Red Sands Shores will welcome you.

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

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

Historic Site is Victoria Row. This narrow street is closed to car traffic in summer and its charming red brick buildings house an eclectic array of shops and restaurants. It seems like everyone has patio seating and it is the perfect place

It’s here that Anne of Green Gables– The Musical™ has been delighting audiences for an incredible 48 years. The Centre is a cultural hub and attracts performers from all over the world. An impressive art gallery displays the work of diverse Canadian artists and a gift shop has hand-crafted items from across the country. The Centre also cultivates new talent through its

St. Dunstan’s Basilica that climb heavenbound above the city. Every Wednesday and Saturday, the country comes to the city at the Farmer’s Market, located just a few minutes drive from downtown. This is where traditional Island fare like fresh vegetables, meats and pies can be found alongside ethnic cuisine from the four corners of the world. As day turns into night, Charlottetown seems to turn into one big concert stage. Celtic bands kick up their heels and local singers belt out folksy tunes in the city’s

pubs and lounges. Music is also a big part of the many summer festivals, so if you see a tent on the waterfront, chances are you’re about to be treated to some great musical talent. Charlottetown’s beauty is that, even in the heart of the city, you’re never far away from a round of golf or a day at the beach. The 18-hole Fox Meadow Golf and Country Club is just seven

minutes away, in Stratford. Keep driving a little further and you’ll discover the red sands of Tea Hill Beach, a great place for shell collecting and a dip in the warm water.
