1. Anne of Green Gables House and Museum as well as the theatre production at the Confederation Centre. A real fan might also like to see Anne and Gilbert at the Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside. On the way back, stop in for an authentic lobster supper in New Glasgow.
2. National Park System -Greenwich section of the park and the interpretative centre are not to be missed. Beaches, dunes, trails and absolutely amazing vistas.
3. Dunes Gallery -great art, pottery, jewellery, furniture, clothing-all local, in an environment of lush gardens. Top it off with a view from the top and a spectacular lunch or dinner.

8. French River, one of the prettiest villages on PEI – While there take the Paynter Road off #20, one of the prettiest little roads on the Island and stop in at Tony Diodati's Art Gallery. The view is my favourite.
9. Indian River Music Festival. Features a world of diverse offerings over the summer in a gorgeous historic church.
