Prince Edward Island

Charlottetown, Canada

Prince Edward Island

The smallest province in Canada, Prince Edward Island is famous for red sand beaches, red soil, potatoes, and the irrepressible Anne of Green Gables. It also is known as the "Birthplace of Confederation." The Confederation Bridge which joins Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick takes just ten minutes to cross, with no wait times.

July to October you’ll find water warm enough to swim in; September, celebrate the fall harvest at the Food Network chef-led Fall Flavours festival and the oysterpalooza that is the PEI International Shellfish Festival.

In 2012, Zagat named PEI the second best foodie getaway in the world. Test the theory at any of the spots on the culinary trail, including a stop at the island’s first artisan distillery, which still sells the area’s once-famed moonshine. Leaving the island without sampling a Mooey Gooey cone from cow's creamery is a recipe for regret.
