Even thought Prince Edward Island is so small it still has over 3,700kms of paved road which means that by renting a car or using the guided tour buses you can get just about anywhere. To get on and off the island you will have to use either the Charlottetown airport or the 13km long Confederation Bridge.
National festival and holidays
All across the province watch out for ceilidhs, these are mini festivals with Celtic based music and dancing which are held through out the year. The Charlottetown Festival starts in mid June and runs until mid September, and is filled with free outdoor performances, children's theater and dance programs.
If drinking is your thing then the Festival of the Fathers in late August is for you. This festival has Charlottetown's streets filled with music, dance, people sampling traditional food and a 10-tavern pub crawl.
