    Unfortunately the day we visited it was pouring down with rain. We toured the main museum, about the life and history and L.M. Montgomery, but did not tour the grounds due to the weather. The museum is nicely done with pictures and information about the author's childhood and life. There is a big gift shop too. Too bad the weather wasn't nicer.

    Cavendish Beach had beautiful red cliffs and red sand. I went to the beach in November, and it was very windy and cold, so I would caution visitors who come to this beach in the colder months to dress appropriately. The water was very rough and chilly, but it was great to take a stroll on this beach. I walked down some stairs from the boardwalk to reach this beach. I also walked around a path by the nearby sand dunes. It was interesting to walk within the adjacent woods of this beach. There was a parking lot, and there were bathrooms and shower facilities for the warmer months.

    North Rustico Beach and Cabendish Beach had the classic red cliffs and red sand. The Green Gables House was not open for tours, but I was able to hike around its grounds. The beaches were very cold in November, but I bundled up. I was able to take a scenic drive along the Atlantic Ocean. Everything was free when I went to this park.

    Big, ornate and kinda over the top for such a smallish city. Iconic and historical gothic style of architecture. I like checking out various temples, chapels, and synagogues…not to find fault with decor or style but to celebrate the faiths they reflect. Yeah, this is worth a visit.

    The show was entertaining and the venue was awesome as usual. Nice to see some new art displays relating to Fiona and it's artistic impact.

    There are lifeguards at Basin Head Beach. The water and sand were extremely clean. I enjoyed this beach much more than Brackley Beach. You don’t have to pay for entry at Basin Head Beach. We got to experience the singing sand. The water was very cold but you get used to it.

    We visited the Cliffside Café for lunch and I had the best lobster roll. We also had cheeseburgers and fries.

    We go to this place at least once a month! It is a great place to destress and if you have kids they will love it! It’s my favorite place to visit and Flory and her staff are amazing!

    Great place for a walk. Pleasant boardwalk around the foreshore. Charlottetown is lovely and as well as the park there are interesting historical buildings to investigate. We visited twice from a cruise and enjoyed our two days here.

    I took a drive for about fifteen (15) minutes on Du Gulfshore Parkway West. North Rustico Beach and MacNeill’s Brook Beach were great sites to explore. I loved the red cliffs and the red sand. There were also a plethora of rocks and shells around the beach. The water was very chilly and rough, and I would caution visitors who come to this area in the winter to be prepared for a very cold and windy weather. I took advantage of the many areas to pull over, to park the car, and to take a hike. The views of these beaches were my favorite highlights of Prince Edward Island National Park.

    Very beautiful. Unfortunately I didn’t know the museum was open public. I thought it was just for guests at the inn. I enjoyed the area in general and the beach and wish I had the loot until to visit the museum too

    Nicely positioned overlooking the harbour, near the beginning of Victoria Park. We did not get inside the house, but got some photos of the outside.
