Thinking of coming to explore June. 8-16 like to see historical things, scenic areas what are favorite spots for locals. A senior will be driving
I love to fish, and have participated in a PEI mackerel charter a few years back? Are there other types of salt water fish that can be caught off a pier or from a recreational fishing boat?
My friends and I are considering a vacation In PEI in September 2018, making Charlottetown our home base. I like the idea of exploring the island along the coastal drives. If we visit these small towns on a Sunday, will the restaurants and shops be open? Also will most shopping areas be open on Sunday in Charlottetown?
visiting the island the end of September thru first week of October, any ceilidh to attend, best place for lobster and mussels? Where is the best places to visit to experience the music of the island thanks so much for taking the time to answer We can't wait to visit this is our second trip to the island since we honeymooned there in 2005.
Hi, Patty, Your answer to my question on bloom time of the lupins is perfect, but what I most appreciated was the tip on the Black Marsh Trail. I'm hoping we can see some pitcher plants like on the Bruce Peninsula, ON. We are staying centrally near Brackley Beach for the week. I'm thinking we could spend a day in Charlottetown, a couple of days up by Brackley, a day in Summerside, the Acadian Museum, the bottle house and maybe potato museum, a day in Tignish and North Cape, a day in Greenwich and points east. We have been to PEI twice but the last time 21 years ago.
Looking to possibly visit PEI this summer. We are a family of 5, with children being 21, 19, and 19. Boys love to play golf, and daughter loves the beach. We love to hike as a family too. What is the best way to plan a 6-7 night trip which would include these 3 activities, and ideas of where to stay. We like high end resorts or houses that do not require use to bring sheets and towels. We hate camping. Not really interested in visiting Green Gables. We do love good restaurants. Would have to fly in and rent a car. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
