Prince Edward Island
Think seafood, fresh caught lobster steamed to perfection, Malpeque oysters au naturel from the valley of the same name - considered to be some of the sweetest, tastiest in the world. And famous PEI Mussels by the bucketful, too.
Prince Edward Island is home to world renowned Anne of Green Gables and the rolling dunes of Greenwich National Park. You can overnight at one of The Inns of Distinction – a dozen romantic bed and breakfasts in historic vintage homes across the island. Take in the annual Shellfish Festivals (there's two of them) and join the crowds at the big lobster halls in New Glasgow, North Rustico and St. Anne's. And there's Charlottetown, at the centre of the island's culinary scene where the Culinary Arts Program at Holland College trains Canada's top chefs. Charlottetown is midway on the Confederation Trail, 160 km of biking and walking trails past potato farms and pastures, following the old railway line from one end of PEI to the other. The lighthouses, the golf courses, the village museums, the post card farmscapes and best of all… food, festivals, friendly people and their island way of life.
