    Definitely avoid this spot if you can. Total tourist trap. Bunch of souvenirs made in China. Not worth it!  more »

    We stopped by Avonlea Village on a warm summer afternoon. We enjoyed a beer in the beer garden and then strolled and browsed through the shops.  more »

    Amazing coffee and breakfast at Samuels ...and yummy chocolates at Anne's chocolate shop. Always a place to check out when visiting.  more »

    Quaint surroundings. Good history on the author that brought it all to life. PEI is beautiful! Canadians are Wonderful! Friendly! Just a joy to visit.

    Enjoyable but pouring rain dampened the experience. Enjoyed the Green Gables settlement far more. Restaurants need a few more salads please.

    Pretty cute little village. Nice eclectic mix of small shops and restaurants. Try the grilled cheese shop
