The live local band was awesome! We had a blast!!! The short plays were doe with good actors and followed close to LM Mongomery's story.
The village itself was closed for the season, but the gift shop was still open and very inviting! Interesting items and priced reasonable! The salesperson was very helpful and friendly! Enjoyed the ex... read more »
We stopped in to buy souvenirs and get some Cows ice cream. Several nice stores and a few food choices. Would have been better with a cast of characters walking around.
After visiting Avonlea Village this past June 2016, I felt that the atmosphere was terrible; it felt like a ghost town. Before, there was excitement from the moment you walked through the door with the actors all in character, which was fantastic. Having the opportunity to dress up in antique clothing and getting pictures taken was a lot of fun. The carriage ride, along with the little petting zoo was great. The entertainment the musicians provided all day was very enjoyable, it really lifted the spirits of those who entered the village. At the end of the day, getting the chance to interact with the actors and play the fair games with them was a blast for the young as well as the old. I feel that when a person goes on vacation, a person plans to spend some money. Maybe the problem came down to not having the proper advertising, and people were not informed or aware of everything that came with the entrance cost. At the end of the day, I feel that P.E.I. has lost a great attraction and experience while visiting the island on your vacation.
Visited in July 2016. Was an ok place to pick up souvenirs and the like. Had some Cows ice cream that was fantastic and did a little shopping. From reading other reviews I hear that this place used to have a lot more interactivity. I wish it was a bit more now. Was it ok, yes. Could it be better, oh yes.
I was greatly disappointed. After reading all about this site on a Web page I was expecting to see period dressed people and workers and buildings to walk through. The only thing it was though was a trap to get you to spend way to much money. We got ice cream at cows which was good. That tasted great. We went to moo moo to eat and we spent close to 100 for 5 people to eat and get a drink. Extremely high priced. The food was ok I tried a sandwich I never would have tried elsewhere. We walked through the church and every building there and all the buildings were there for you to buy something or eat.
It was nice to walk around in but since we weren't interested in shopping, there really wasn't much to do or see. I was expecting people to be dressed up and for more interactive displays...
Great little spot to wander shops, eateries or to take in a traditional East Coast music show. I personally preferred these shops and restaurants to the more popular boardwalk and had the opportunity to take in a children's music show which my two year old just loved.
