"Anne's Avonlea" Cavendish by 850prc
Cavendish Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 8 photos
Have you read the classic Lucy Maud Montgomery story, ANNE OF GREEN GABLES? Well, Cavendish is the town that inspired the tale. Sure, in the book Anne lives in Avonlea, but that's a fictional name for Cavendish.
Avonlea may be fictional, but GREEN GABLES, the house, exists and can be visited. It's part of Prince Edward Provincial Park. So, if you like your literature to come alive, you might want to swing through Cavendish on your visit to PEI.
Check out my separate tip for the Green Gables house on this short Cavendish page.
Just about anywhere in Atlantic Canada, you're bound to find references to Anne of Green Gables. And of course, it's especially true in/on Prince Edward Island.
FWIW, my wife procured a copy of Anne and read it over before our trip, just to enhance our understanding of the novel's local impact. It did add something to our feel and enjoyment of PEI. I recommend that you look it over - it's an easy read, and very heartwarming. A true classic.
- Pros:Immersion into a beloved childhood story... that's good stuff.
- Cons:TO ME, the site and tour seemed a little pricey. (and I am NOT cheap... really!)
- In a nutshell:Sounds like just the place for a raspberry cordiale. (Anne's favorite drink, if you haven't read the book)
