Prince Edward Island Tourism Offers Genuine Maritime Experience
Prince Edward Island tourism is alive with all the sights and sounds that go into a genuine maritime experience.
While the smallest province in Canada, Prince Edward Island boasts the largest number of golf fans who come from across the country. In fact, this tiny island has been selected Canada’s number one golf destination not once, but twice in a row. No small feat for a tiny island – but with just one experience of the 26 Prince Edward Island golf courses, it’s not hard to see why! Resplendent and challenging with their rolling greens, sand and water traps alternating with woodlots and vistas that open up onto lively ocean waters, sandy beaches and red sandstone cliffs, these are golf courses to rival the world’s best.
For those in search of an island vacation, Prince Edward Island tourism and tourist attractions abound. Visit Confederation Bridge: an engineering marvel over 9 miles long – it is the largest bridge over ice-spanned waters in the world. Explore the home of Confederation in Canada with a visit to Province House in Charlottetown. Spend an evening at the theater enjoying Anne Of Green Gables – The Musical. Attend just a sampling of arts and music festivals during the summer month. And, last but not least, visit the artisan studios that pepper the province with their abundance of genuine island arts and crafts including pottery, weaving, knitting, handmade soaps, sand crafts, folk furniture, aboriginal works, quilting and much, much more.
And then there are the beaches. Miles and miles of them! In colors of white, champagne, pink and red they offer the quintessential Prince Edward Island tourism vacation experience. Discover a moment’s peace, fun for the whole family, rediscover a romance, or nature at its best over this network of natural beauty that extends from tip to tip on this gentle island. Don’t forget: Prince Edward Island boasts one of Canada’s foremost national parks, and no less than seven provincial parks.
There can be no talk of a tourism experience on Prince Edward Island without the mention of food. The ocean offers up wonderful and unique dining experiences – and, along with the lobster, world-famous Malpeque oysters and fresh island mussels, Prince Edward Island is also renowned for its chocolates, its jams and its jellies, and of course, renowned Prince Edward Island potatoes.
Tourism is a mainstay of the Prince Edward Island economy and with a wealth of things to see and to do including golf, shopping, camping, dining, culture, deep sea fishing or simply hanging out at the beach; it’s really not hard to see why.
