How much of your country have you seen? Are there areas you often think you’d like to visit “one day” but realize with each passing summer vacation that the kids are a year older and you still haven’t reached “one day”?
About 6 years ago, we packed up two kids in an SUV and made the drive from Saskatchewan through the Rockies and across the BC interior over to Vancouver Island. It was a long drive, no doubt, but it was one of those family memories I’ll always have and talk about, even if the kids don’t remember much themselves.
Now that we’ve visited the west coast, I’ve said more than once to my husband that “one day” we should visit the east coast, and specifically Prince Edward Island because of everything there is to see and do.
PEI is more than great lobster and even better golf. Canada’s smallest province is home to great culture, scenery, culinary treats and activities and one visit to the Tourism PEI website has me hooked!
The Tourism PEI website is the perfect planning partner, because it expertly shares (almost) everything there is to see and do on the Island. From sandy beaches boasting miles (ahem, kilometers!) of coastline and picturesque boardwalks to lighthouses making the perfect backdrop for the family photo you’ve always wanted, PEI is as pretty as it is rejuvenating. I say “almost” everything is shared on the Tourism PEI website because I just know that there are some local favourite spots or undiscovered restaurants that we may stumble upon on our own too!
I would certainly want to spend a day on the beach, taking in the sights and sounds of the ocean, and then definitely would want at least a morning or afternoon to visit some lighthouses (and yes, get that perfect family photo with it in the background!
My husband, undoubtedly, would like to take advantage of an authentic lobster excursion with a genuine lobster-fishing crew (it was actually featured on Live with Regis & Kelly)! Yes, that’s one of the adventures listed under Authentic PEI Experiences on the Tourism PEI website – how great is that?
There’s nothing like getting tourism information from people who live in the area- they undoubtedly have the best information and ideas on experiences and what they’re most proud of in their home province. Tapping into this resource, Tourism PEI has an Ask An Islander section on their website, enabling you to ask locals your tourism questions while planning your visit! I love this feature, and it certainly speaks to the pride of PEI residents. You can also follow #AskAnIslander and #PEI on Twitter for information as well!
