A pretty town perched on the water, Souris (pronounced "Surrey") gives easy access to PEI’s essential sights and sounds. The seascape includes harbors, lighthouses, and bountiful beaches. There’s music in the salt air, too, thanks to the seasonal ceilidhs and outdoor concerts Souris hosts (the events calendar at www.sourispei.com has full details), including performances at the town's new theater and concert venue, The Centre Stage (formerly St. James United Church).
