Begin with a memorable drive through historic downtown Charlottetown followed by a stop at the famous Prince Edward Island National Park, home of Cavendish and Anne of Green Gables homestead. Green Gables, part of Lucy Maud Montgomery's Cavendish National Historic Site, has become famous around the world as the inspiration for the setting in Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic tale of fiction, Anne of Green Gables. In real life, this farm was the home of David Jr. and Margaret MacNeill, who were cousins of Montgomery's grandfather. You'll rekindle memories from the past as you stroll the site. En route, you'll stop at the Prince Edward Island Preserves Company to sample homemade jams and visit the coastal fishing village of North Rustico, on the shore of Rustico Harbour, and learn about the history of the Prince Edward Island fishery. Then relax and enjoy the picturesque landscape on the drive back to the city as your tour winds to a close.

Anne Of Green Gables
While the island tour was good, we were only given 1/2 hour at Green Gables. Getting off the bus and being required to view the 7 minute film took up the first 15 minutes of the visit. There was not enough time to visit the house or any of the other spots on the site.
