PEI 2 nights - Should we or shouldn't we?

Jump to last reply

Hi - I am almost ashamed to admit that in 6 visits to Atlantic Canada, we have not yet visited PEI. The reasons for this are:
1 - limited vacation time forces us to be more selective than we ideally would like
2 - whenever I have discussed PEI with others who have visited, or read up on it - it seems to come up short on my list of "preferred things to do and see" compared with other Atlantic Canada destinations.
But - once again we're considering fitting it into our itinerary for this summer. We would have 2 nights maximum. Below are my "most favourite" and "less favourite" things. I'm looking forward to comments and opinions.....? Thanks!

Like:
- wild rugged scenery
- picturesque but "quieter" beaches for strolling and appreciating ocean vistas
- birdwatching and nature-appreciation
- day hikes in natural landscapes
- charming and interesting towns - preferrably with some unique shops and/or museums and a pub or two overlooking the water
- Seafood. My spouse has visions of visiting Malpeque Bay and sampling the famous oysters in their home turf

Don't like so much:
- Touristy attractions (would not visit the Anne of Green Gables sites)
- Crowded beaches
