Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island is an amazing cruise destination. The island has been named one of the world’s most beautiful, with lots of activities on the water.

PEI connects to New Brunswick via the Confederation Bridge,  the world’s longest bridge over ice-covered water, during the winters, of course.

As a cruise passenger, you’ll be visiting as I did, in the spring, summer or fall, when the weather is gorgeous.

Charlottetown itself is a charming city, with lots of great architecture and lots of history. The city is known as the birthplace of Canada.

This rare lobster was a little unusual in color.

One of the things I enjoy in Charlottetown is getting out on the water with the lobster fishermen.

I also enjoy paying a visit to the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company. I could spend a whole day here just sampling the preserves.

At Prince Edward Island in Preserve Company. Technically, it's spreadable fruit, with 80 percent of the ingredients being fresh fruits, including local berries in some flavors. The most popular flavor is pictured here.

And who would want to leave Charlottetown without experiencing some of the region’s excellent lobster or world famous oysters?

And then there’s Anne of Green Gables. She’s fictional of course, but you’ll enjoy the beautiful farmhouse that inspired the story.

Japanese tourists are among the most frequent visitors to Anne at Green Gables home.
