Wood Islands Welcome Centre

Welcome to Prince Edward Island as you enter the province via the Eastern Gateway! Keep right as you exit the ferry from Nova Scotia. Beautiful heritage-themed buildings with: Visitor Information Center, cold beer, liquor, ice, commissary store; Ice cream, candy and souvenir store; Art studio; Hall rental and more! Picnic tables, shelter, gardens. Convenient parking for RVs. Start Confederation Trail (walking/cycling) here. Or, before you leave the Island via the ferry, give yourself an extra hour or two to stop here for an ice cream and then head to the Wood Islands Lighthouse Museum, one of the top lighthouses on PEI for a tour and a visit to the last gift store featuring Island artisans (see separate listing for lighthouse). All is community owned and operated.

Dates of Operation: May 12, 2016 - October 1, 2016
