The rustic allure of a rolling green patchwork of farmland juxtaposed against a coastline of sandy beaches and spectacularly eroded cliffs studded with lighthouses is difficult to ignore for visitors. When you add in attractions like the house and location for one of the most beloved characters in children's literature, a beachfront National Park, and a biking route that runs from one end of the island to the other, Prince Edward Island (PEI for short) offers something for everyone.
PEI is Canada's tiniest province, but it's also one of its most beautiful. According to a Micmac First Nations tale, the deity Glooscap painted all of the world's lovely sites before creating Abegweit, his favorite island, by dipping his brush in every color. The island's location in the Gulf of St. Lawrence ensures nice weather all year. Find the best places to visit and things to do with this list of the top tourist attractions on Prince Edward Island.
