Prince Edward Island Travel Guide: 402 reviews and 843 photos

Each year, over 1 million visitors drive across the Confederation Bridge to spend some memorable time in Prince Edward Island, Canada's smallest province. As it always seems to be the case on an island, life in P.E.I. runs at a different pace, one that is perfect for vacations!

In August 2005, my sister, nephew, niece and I embarked on our second family camping trip, and P.E.I. turned out to be a great family destination. While grown-ups travel from all over the world to visit the land of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the Island is also full of fun attractions for the young ones. So pick up that old copy of Anne of Green Gables and start dreaming about your next trip to Prince Edward Island!

    P.E.I. is on my wish list, and of course to see all there is about Anne of Green Gables! I was a fan of the mini-series but had never read the book.

    It is also known for the home to Anne of Green Gables fans. Japanese people love Anne series and Hayao Miyazaki was part of TV animation series of Anne of Green Gables in 1979.

    Fine tips about this charming little province! As a non-Canadian, I must admit that I have never read "Anne of Green Gables" and have heard about it only from other people's VT pages on P.E.I. -- I think this is the first VT page to mention Bumber Boats.

    Lots of interesting tips on this page which I really enjoyed reading. Didn't know about Anne of Green Gables being there. We also have a miniature English village called Cockington green in Canberra, Aus which I loved.

    Isa, thanks for bringing back dim memories of my visits to PEI in the early 1970s as we treated our children to many of your described delights! Your tips and photos are a real tour-de-force!!

    My folks are originally from Charlottetown, so I spent numerous summers as a child on Prince Edward Island. Thanks, Isa, for taking me for a stroll down memory lane.

    Hee hee - if it'd been me I would've taken photos of the bathrooms at Gov't House in Charlottetown!! ;) Just finished reading Anne of Green Gables today and had to rush off to VT to read up on it and see photos of the place. Yours are wonderful!
