Prince Edward Island Travel Guide | Visiting PEI Canada

today we're going to be taking youaround Prince Edward Island one of Canada's three Maritime Provinces andthe final destination of our road trip we had four days to explore the islandand during that time we visited small fishing villages that walked along thefamous red sand beaches toward the home of

Anne of Green Gables sampled ourfirst lobster roll and enjoyed a delicious seafood feast prepared bySam's uncle who's a chef on the island it was a really fun visit so all of thatand more coming up in this video so we thought it would be a really goodidea to go

for a sunset stroll Suns going down in beautiful fields and weare now being eaten alive by mosquitoes we seem especially attracted to darkcolor so my dad's jacket is covered defense my friends grab the branchminion flyswatter again alive we quickly retreated back to the farmhouse we hadrented and despite

the mosquitos attacking we did get to enjoy a nicesunset on her sprint back the following morning we got a brightand early ready to explore the island our first stop a beach for Togo tosplash in so our first stop of the day today isGordon Cote beach we thought we

would bring the dog for a swim here in theocean yesterday he had a long day in the carcooped up it was a five-hour drive from Cape Breton to Peibut yeah this is a lovely beach it's public dogs are allowed it's a red sandbeach and we're the only ones

here there's someone else out maybe it's abit too early for a swim yeah but it's really nice so he's splashing aroundchasing sticks another thing to mention here is that we have great views of theconfederation bridge that's the bridge we crossed yesterday from New Brunswickto Prince Edward Island and

this is actually the longest bridge in the worldthat crosses over waters that frees fun factit's twelve point nine kilometres and it's free when you cross onto the islandbut once we leave that's when we pair at all which is around 50 bucks so what arewe up to you for

the few days that we're here what's some of the things we wantto do well local rules yeah yeah especially we're looking for placeswhere the Togo can be on the loose I don't have to use the leash and maybewe're gonna link up with a famous chef from the island

here he teaches at theculinary school I'm looking forward to the interaction between Daniel and Hansit's gonna be gonna be special after our visit to the beach we hop backin the car and drove up to Cavendish where the main attraction is GreenGables heritage place whether you've read the books

seeing the movies orwatched the TV series setting foot here will transport you to the late 19thcentury where you can relive and adventures on three we're gonna make a wishone two three so we just finished visiting the home of Anne of GreenGables and we are now walking through the

Haunted wood honestly it's been awhile since I read the books so I don't remember the significance of this butit's a very nice trail through the woods nice and shaded we just finishedvisiting the house of Anne of Green Gables my dad had to stay outsidebecause of the dog he's

allowed on the grounds not in the home which is fairyeah but I I saw the house from outside and it's one of those farmhousescolonial type of construction it's a beautiful placethe whole area is amazing it's it's like coming out of a book of our fairy talesyou know yeah

beautiful gardens and nothing is seems to be out of place youknow everything seems to be like picture-perfect here and the house wellyou know for people that don't know about the story here and of Green Gablesyou can try to find the yeah there's a brand new show on Netflix

is called Annewith Annie yeah and we watch both seasons yeah it's great and now we'reoff to lunch we're going in search of lobster 11:30 half an hour drive isgonna be lunchtime so the lobster roll if we can he's ready for lunch – huh what time is it it's

time for can youguess what that is it's a lobster roll well guys we're already digging into ourlobster roll mine's half gone because it's notdelicious but we came to the lobster barn or Airbnb host recommended thisplace she said the food here is amazing and it is and yeah we

got here and theplace is packed inside hmm we've got togi so we can't go inside therestaurant or the patio but we did do takeoutToby's being a good boy right here yeah how would you guys describe the rawlobster roll for those it's a it's a unique item to here

yeah it's like thelobster meat like the best of the lobster man looked like a sweet mayo ontop no it's also a bit of lettuce in there just a really nice packed bondthat's a lobster it's a must try if you come to see I it lobster is thespecialty of

this of this province in particular Jerry would have been a badidea sure everyone has their own Howard the lobster rolls guys good dad what doyou think well guys that was Victoria by the seabeautiful beautiful I mean first let's talk about lunch that was incredibleWow first-ever lobster roll I

loved it the texture of the lobster is just sosoft it's kind of buttery and oh so good I could have had two of those sandwichesyeah I mean they're not cheap I would have had to drop over 30 bucks oh Idon't think we mentioned the price so if you

get it as takeout it's $14 for thelobster roll yeah and it's 18 if you're having it in the restaurant but it comeswith fries yeah it's pretty cool you can get fries or you could substitute themfor sweet potato fries and then just beside there you have a lighthouse toexplore

you also have a pier to walk around you have a little beach yeah andwe notice a lot of people also kayaking so great either chilling getting in someexercise or just stuffing your Beach I notice they had clam digging tourskayaking tours yeah and what sunset tour – oh yeah

– running boat and I alsowanted to say like the town is really small it's just two blocks by two blocksyou can covered it's ridiculously cute though yeah it's definitely worth a spotand yeah that pretty much Park anywhere and highly highly recommended yeah thefollowing morning we woke up to

a rather grey and rainy day but that wasn't goingto keep us from exploring the island we hopped in a car and drove to GreenwichBeach which had been recommended to us by a local good morning from Pei it'sanother morning it's another day it's a windy one and a rainy

one we drove toGreenwich to visit Prince Edward Island National Parkswe're really excited about taking the dog to the beach but it turns out he'snot allowed from like April to October is it so he's not happythe dog is throwing loudly in the form of whimpering whimpering crying yeahhe's just

not a happy camper he's not allowed on the boardwalkso he stayed behind with my parents while we walk over to the beach toexplore it should be beautiful red sand beaches it's too bad he can't swimmaybe there was a birds nesting or something and that's why he's notallowed who

knows oh yeah we're gonna share those of use with you we broughtsome umbrellas so we can still get out and you know enjoy the scenery even ifit's a bit of a wet day and yeah Sam's pointing me so we made it to GreenwichBeach the place my dad wanted

to see with those iconic long empty desolatebeaches that you see on the TV commercial it's just like that actuallywe're the only ones at the beach right now yeah there is not one soul to be hadyou know it's all it's all power cells but the only sad part is

that we werecoming with the dog with all go he was ready to go swimming and we see thatthere are signs here that says the dogs are not allowed at the beach yeah duringcertain times of year yeah nesting bird some nesting bird along here I don't seeany bird but

supposed to be nesting birds so yeah that one being worked outwell the dog had to stay in the car screaming and barking because we cameover here and stayed with my wife in there andyeah beautiful beautiful beach as far as the eye can seeyou got beach and this gives
