Cavendish & Charlottetown

 Only a short 20 minute drive away is Cavendish, one of the most popular spots on the island to visit.  Home to Anne of Green Gables, you can step back in time by visiting Avonlea Village and visit with Anne herself! Tour the village, walk through Anne’s house or take a carriage ride.  Cavendish also has lots of shopping and things to do.  A traditional favourite is to visit Grandpa’s Antique Photo Studio, where your family poses for a photo dressed in gangster garb, victorian era dress and more!

There is also the Cavendish Boardwalk, where you’ll find the famous Cows Ice Cream, named the “world’s best ice cream” by Tauck World Travel.  You’ll also find plenty of other shopping, from clothing to handbags, jewelry, fish ‘n chips and lots more.

Cavendish Beach, in Cavendish National Park, is a wonderful white sand beach, and is very popular.  There is lots of space, with amenities such as food and washrooms.

Cavendish is also home to amusement and water parks, fun for all ages! Sandspit has rides, slides, bumper cars and boats, and so much more! Shining Waters is a water park, right across the street from Sandspit, and combined passes for entry to both attractions can be purchased.

No visit to Prince Edward Island would be complete without exploring the home of Confederation, and all of the history it has to offer.  However, don’t let that fool you! Charlottetown is a vibrant, energetic and exciting city.  There are many pubs that feature live music, as well as clubs for nightlife and dancing.  Charlottetown also boasts some of the finest restaurants, from the best fish and seafood you will ever have, to great steakhouses!

Go for a night out at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino for a fun-filled evening of watching horse racing and gambling at the casino. Visit the theatre or art gallery at the Confederation Centre for the Arts, stroll through the quaint downtown core to shop, or enjoy lunch on a patio on the famous Victoria Row.
