Family Vacation

I went on a family vacation to beautiful Prince Edward Island in the summer of 2005 for one week; we were able to see and discover many things, and had a great time! The weather really cooperated with us. We were lucky to have stayed in a cute, small cottage located in Cornwall (outside Charlottetown) and we visited many other places, such as Summerside, Cavendish, Basin Head and more. I hope to have all my tips up soon, so come back!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:the scenery, the people, beaches, red sand, Cows icecream, the culture, EVERYTHING!!
  • Cons:Extremely cold in the winter, some places VERY touristy in the summer (like Anne of Green Gables)
  • In a nutshell:One of Canada's most beautiful provinces. Definately worth a visit.
