My mom and I are planning a trip to PEI and we would like to come when the fall colours are in full force. When would be the best time of year to come?

Hi Cheryl!

Fall on Prince Edward Island is my favourite time of year! The leaves will begin changing in late September but I do find the colours much more vibrant in early to mid-October.
