You've got to go to the northern tip of PEI just for the beautiful scenery and to say you've done it. Along the way you'll see huge windmills and from up close. The setting for the wind center is stunning--rugged red coast. The wind center has displays about wind energy and how to harness this renewable resource. You can see why the lighthouse is necessary. The longest rock reef is here and at low tide can be explored. You can also learn about shipwrecks and ghost ships. There is also a gift shop and a restaurant. Don't miss the many inukshuks along the coast and why not make one of your own. What fun.

We visited here near the end of their season, but it was still an interesting experience. Their restaurant was closed, for example. The Interpretive Centre was what you'd expect. We thought parts were intriguing, like the full-sized bits of the wind turbines, some parts cheesy, like a large replica of the ancient notion of wind. But we did find parts quite good. The outside areas are, in our view, quite a bit more interesting than the indoor bits, with actual blades and turbine parts so close, but sadly fenced off. Also, there is a delightful lighthouse there too, and some walking trails. We wanted to see as many parts of Prince Edward Island on our road trips, and so this fit the bill for us. Not sure if this would satisfy everybody, if they drove all the way from Charlottetown just to see it, it's not that well-rounded as destination all by itself.

Everyone knows how the power generating windmills look like. Yo see the, all around the world. But it is incredible to see one from near by and realize how huge and sophisticated the are. The Wind Energy Center is really very special. It is also located in a perfect location to demonstrate - the wind in this northmost part of Prince Edward Island is fierce.

The majesty of this spot was impressive on the very windy and rainy day we visited. The displays were rather dated (one referred to the approaching 21st century) and many of the interactive displays were worn to the point of being unusable.

Wind power energy has always been sort of a mystery to us. The center provided an easy to understand overview of the entire process, while providing the numerous benefits to utilizing this resource.
