Prince Edward Island at a Glance

Bucolic Prince Edward Island is so much more than the Anne of Green Gables stories that propelled it to fame. Gorgeously red seaside cliffs, tidy croplands, quaint villages and good beaches make PEI a wonderful place for a vacation.

Of course, Anne of Green Gables fans will want to visit the House of Green Gables, home to Lucy Maude Montgomery, Anne's author. Avonlea Village is another draw for Anne fans. In this fantasy destination, visitors can interact with costumed characters from the books and learn about farming tasks that Anne would have experienced every day.

If you've had your fill of Anne of Green Gables, hit the beach. Whether you enjoy walks along rugged cliffs or sunbathing in the sand, PEI has a scenic and relaxing shore for you. Further inland, embrace scenic driving, or hop on a bike. A tour of the island's many villages will expose you to friendly people, industrious fishing harbors and the kind of scenic farmland you could take pictures of all day.
