Over 680 miles of picturesque beaches surround Prince Edward Island, Canada's smallest province and one of the Maritime region's crowning jewels. This quaint destination charms visitors with its pristine landscapes and keeps them returning for more with its bountiful seafood and enchanting culture. Prince Edward Island vacations offer visitors a window into the soul of the province and a chance to explore destinations that merge history and natural beauty perfectly. One such of these places is Charlottetown on the south shore of PEI. The province's capital city is a hotspot for many vacation packages. It offers attractions like the Confederation Centre of the Arts, St. Dunstan's Basilica Cathedral, and, of course, the Province House National Historic Site, where the Confederation was founded. Charlottetown tours also present beautifully preserved Victorian architecture and lovely provincial parks. Best of all, visitors enjoy easy access to all the stunning scenes encompassing the rest of the island.
From Prince Edward Island National Park - with its seven red-hued beaches and 30-plus miles of hiking trails - to the numerous lighthouses and coastal drives, things to do in Prince Edward Island are plentiful. Coastal wineries are a treat for all the senses, with their delicious varietals and stunning scenery. Gorgeous golf courses are tucked throughout the landscape, many of which are touted as some of Canada's best. The province's prolific beauty comes to a head at Green Gables Heritage Place, set within Prince Edward Island National Park. This historic home and its lush surroundings are so magnificent that they inspired the story "Anne of Green Gables." No Prince Edward Island visit is complete without walking the boardwalks through forested lands, dunes, and along the coastline. Embark on a PEI vacation independently, following a thoughtful itinerary that highlights points of interest, or join an escorted tour to see the beauty of the island alongside a guide and a small group of fellow travelers. It matters little how you experience Prince Edward Island, just that you do. There are few places in the world that so easily capture the heart.
