Prince Edward Island (PEI) is one of the Canadian island provinces located east of Quebec. It was made famous as the setting in the beloved book series, Anne of Green Gables. A huge part of their outstanding tourism industry is devoted to all things Lucy Maude Montgomery and Anne. As wonderful as these exhibits are, and they are indeed marvellous, PEI is so much more than just Anne of Green Gables. For this week's Flashback, here are 10 photos (and very little commentary) to tempt you into putting PEI on your travel shortlist.
The entire coast is stunning. Follow any of the many self-drive routes for outstanding views.
As you drive along the coast, pull into some of the cute little seaside ports, such as North Rustico, for some souvenirs, tasty treats, and to book unique marine expeditions.
You must walk along the gorgeous red sand beaches in PEI National Park. The waters are chilly. This stunning National Park has trails and beaches galore.
Brackey Beach is pretty much smack dab in the hub of many of the driving routes, so I centered myself nearby. The colours of PEI absolutely delight me.
The cemeteries have great views! I always enjoy wandering through cemeteries.
Maison de Bouteilles (it's actually several buildings!)
Green Gables fans will enjoy Gertrude and Josephine's porch.
Buy some honour box Sunflower purchases in late summer
Visit Stompin' Tom Connors museum....
End your days watching the sunset light up the lighthouse from the porch of your cottage. I hope you are feeling inspired by just a few views of this lovely island province, especially fans of the Green Gables series.
