101 Things to Do in Prince Edward Island

101 Things to Do in PEI

Prince Edward Island…the land of red dirt, potatoes, and of course, Anne of Green Gables. Canada’s smallest province may be small in size but not in fun. It’s Canada’s homegrown island getaway that has a little something for everyone. Spend a night in a rotating circular house. Become a harness racing owner for a day. Race on the longest go-kart course east of Montreal. Get your fill of lobsters and fiddles and bagpipes and theatre. Play some of the finest golf courses around. Complete your lighthouse bucket list. The birthplace of Canada has amazing beaches and quality breweries, and if all you really want to do is put on some fake red braids and visit Green Gables, PEI is here for that too.
