An enchanting medley of rich color, Prince Edward Island is a unique landmass with verdant patchwork fields that stretch out beneath an endless cobalt sky to meet the surrounding sea. At just 195 km (121 miles) long and 61¼ km (38 miles) wide, its accessible size is part of the Island's appeal. Warm hospitality welcomes you, and the laid-back, slow-paced Island lifestyle entices visitors back year after year. Almost every attraction and property is family-owned and -operated. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC. All rights reserved.
