2) Cavendish, Prince Edward Island
This sleepy town comes alive in the summer months when Cavendish’s population of 300 swells to more than 7,000. Despite its size, the rural town on Prince Edward Island (PEI in local lingo) on the Gulf of St. Lawrence provides entertainment for visitors of all ages. The diverse scenery provides stunning ocean and coastal views and rolling green hills further inland. These hills even inspired the famous fictional character, Anne of Green Gables! Visit multiple Anne-related attractions including several museums and an annual music festival. Cavendish proudly brags about its culinary delights as well, serving the freshest and most delicious seafood in the country. Be sure to indulge in lobster, oysters, or PEI’s specialty – mussels. With all these distractions, it’s easy to forget that PEI is known for its outdoor activities, too. Bike and hike your way around PEI’s gorgeous landscape. Or canoe, kayak, or fish in the temperate summer waters.
