PEI VASTLY OVERRATED, SKIP IT

Jump to last reply

Just returned from a two-week visit to Atlantic Canada. For those planning itinaries for trips that include children, I would recommend that you seriously consider skipping PEI. It was extremely buggy (worse than Alaska when we were there last summer), the beaches are bad, the water is freezing, and most of the attractions make you think that's what Myrtle Beach would have been like in the 1950s. Our boys, 11 and 14, hated it and couldn't wait to leave and they're pretty seasoned and fair travelers. It is beautiful, slow, friendly and "quaint" but definitely the beneficiary of an over-the-top marketing campaign.
