Prince Edward Island Vacation
Prince Edward Island Vacation Links feature Canada's smallest province, known as the Birthplace of Canada. Canada's major producer of seed or table potatoes is also nicknamed Spud Island. PEI consists of three counties, Kings County, Queens County and Prince County and is predominately rural while it's heritage attracts over three quarters of a million visitors each year to Charlottetown, PEI's capital city. Prince Edward Island (simply PEI or P.E.I.; French, l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard) is a Canadian province situated in the Maritimes.

It is the nation's smallest province in terms of both size and population, but it has the highest population density of all Canadian provinces at 24.47 persons per square kilometer. The population of PEI is 137,800. People from Prince Edward Island are called Prince Edward Islanders. It is located in a rectangle defined roughly by 46°–47° N, and 62°–64° 30' W. Known as the "Garden Province", the island is located in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, east of New Brunswick and north of Nova Scotia from which it is separated by the Northumberland Strait.

The capital and largest city is Charlottetown, situated centrally on the island's southern shore.  Summerside is the second largest city and is located in Prince County, in the western part of the province. Stratford and Cornwall, the third and fourth largest communities, are located immediately east and west of Charlottetown respectively, placing more than a third of the province's population within the capital region. Like many other communities on Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown and Summerside are both built around natural harbours and is perfect for your next Prince Edward Island vacation.
