Prince Edward Island, located off the coast of New Brunswick, is perfect for wandering. If you’re an Anne of Green Gables fan, you might even recognize a few spots (if so, be sure to check out the Anne Museum in Park Corner).

The island’s largest city, Charlottetown, is a stunning trip in and of itself. But don’t limit yourself: You can see large swaths of the entire Canadian province via the Island Walk, a 435-mile journey around its perimeter. It’s divided into 32 sections, with a variety of activities designed to lead visitors along the coast, through small towns and into some of the cutest mom-and-pop stores they’ll ever come across.

Nicknamed Canada’s Food Island, Prince Edward Island has plenty of dining options, too. Seafood — shellfish, lobster and oysters — and farm-to-table fare is the standard go-to.
