Three Rivers Tour (eastern PEI)

 

Cardigan
Georgetown

Looking to see Kings County on a tighter schedule? This tour offers a more compressed view of some of the hidden gems of Down East PEI. We begin our tour with a brief tour of Historic Charlottetown. Crossing the Hillsborough Bridge we head East to the Village of Cardigan. This is a quaint fishing village with a variety of activities going on in the summer to enjoy. The Cardigan River cuts the village in half as a small causeway that joins one side of the village to the other. Fish farming is one of the employment opportunities that Cardigan has to offer. The next stop is Georgetown, the capital of Kings county. Georgetown was one of the main shipping seaports for PEI and offers one of the deepest natural seaports on the Island. We make a stop to visit with a local jewelry maker, Peter Llewellyn of Shoreline Design, who will tell you many a tall tale and offer you unique jewelry, some of which has been made from the sea glass he has gathered along the sandy beach that is connected to the property he owns, Peter takes great pride in his community and you will leave with a smile for sure. Then we are off to Montague. This is one of PEI largest towns and was a hub of activity for 100+ years. The schooners used to sail up the river and deliver goods to be distributed to the various communities. Montague boasts many sculptures and a magnificent, newly-updated waterfront Mariana for all to enjoy. Montague is also my home town! If you talk really nice to the tour guide he might even stop at the What’s the Scoop Ice cream shop…..So Delicious!!!!. Our last stop in the Three Rivers Tour is at the Point De’Roma Historical site. Here you will see history repeating itself as you join the reenactment of life as it was here in the early settlement days ! Photo ops are in every location that we visit so please feel free to take as many as you want. Capture a memory of the beautiful place we call home!
