Prince Edward Island - Insiders' Guide Professional Review and Guide
"Crossing the Northumberland Strait on the Confederation Bridge isn’t as romantic or as scenic as the ferry ride that it replaced, but it seems to cut that psychological tie to the problems and cares on the mainland just as well. Visitors to Prince Edward Island (P.E.I., as it is affectionately and familiarly called) feel a sense of peace and renewal almost as soon as they set foot on its luxurious red shore. Of all the Atlantic Canada provinces, P.E.I. is the most manicured, almost as if an expert English gardener carefully tended its landscape every day.
Nearly every town and village seems clipped from a romantic postcard, and even Charlottetown, the province’s capital city, is small, intimate, and pretty. P.E.I. is an island gem set off Canada’s east coast in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. This eTrail is a chapter excerpted from the book "Insiders' Guide to Eastern Canada." It is packed with information on each destination including history, getting there & around, major cities & regions, and what to do & where to stay when you get there."
