Enjoy a day viewing some of the iconic attractions on Prince Edward Island. Begin with a drive through downtown Charlottetown, where you will learn the history of this quaint little town that is the Birthplace of the Confederation.
Travel the Trans-Canada Highway through towns and villages toward the eight-mile-long Confederation Bridge. This marvel of engineering, connecting the provinces of Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, opened in 1997. Enjoy a view of the bridge from Gateway Village, where a brief pause allows you to browse for souvenirs or sample some PEI potato chips.
Your journey continues to the Anne of Green Gables Museum at Silver Bush, where descendants of Lucy Maud Montgomery, (author of Anne of Green Gables) await your arrival. They will invite you into the old family farm. Enjoy a visit with Anne before departing Park Corner.
Scenic vistas of the North Shore and Prince Edward Island National Park accompany you to the Green Gables Heritage Place. Visit the house that was made famous in the stories of Anne, or you may prefer to simply stroll along Lover's Lane.
