Prince Edward Island Tour

The province of Prince Edward Island is a diverse landscape of historic cities, stunning capes, beaches, and lighthouses, and plenty of visitor-friendly districts filled with boutiques, eateries, and scenic views.

Charlottetown

Set on the Charlottetown Harbour in Atlantic Canada, Charlottetown is Prince Edward Island’s provincial capital – and the largest city to boot. Known as the Birthplace of Confederation, Charlottetown is connected to southern New Brunswick by the Confederation Bridge.

Must See

Charlottetown is home to 11 places registered as a National Historic Site of Canada. Visitors are encouraged to visit the St. Dunstan's Basilica, Confederation Centre of the Arts, Charlottetown City Hall, and of course, Province House – home to the Prince Edward Island House of Assembly.

Local Guide

Peake’s Wharf Historic Waterfront is your place for shopping, eating, and enjoying the view. Shop through over 20 boutique and souvenir shops, catch the Peake’s Wharf Summer Concert Series, or try a tour of the harbor with Peakes Wharf Boat Tours, Top Notch Lobster Tours, and more.

Be sure to work up an appetite for authentic seafood at Peake’s Quay Restaurant & Bar, Lobster on the Wharf, or MacKinnon’s Lobster Pound. And for dessert? The famous COWS Creamery.

Outdoor

Established in 1873, Victoria Park is located right on Charlottetown Harbour across 25 hectares. Here you can enjoy a picnic, stroll the boardwalk, throw some horseshoes, and much more.

Prince Edward Island

Scenic drives coarse throughout the province thanks to scenic shores, quirky countryside, and even some literary fame. Try the North Cape Coastal Drive, Red Sands Shore Tour, and the Points East Coastal Drive.

Must See

Located appropriately on the Green Gables Shore – set in northern PEI – the Green Gables House is a must for any visitor. Based on the world-known 1908 novel “Anne of Green Gables” by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Green Gables is located within the Prince Edward Island National Park.

Visitors may tour the house from May to October, sign up for a carriage ride, or stroll trails like Haunted Woods and Balsam Hollow.
