Prince Edward Island (PEI) is a beautiful island in the Canadian Maritimes, is one hundred forty miles long and forty miles wide. The two major cities are Charlottetown (the capital of PEI) and Summerside. The total population of PEI is 150,000 people and PEI is a very popular vacation spot for vacationers from all over.
PEI has five hundred miles of the warmest beaches north of the Carolinas with July and August being the warmest months. If you visit you will notice the red soil, that is due to the iron oxide which rusts when exposed to the air.
Zagat named PEI the second best Foodie getaway in the world, you are probably wondering who is first, that distinction goes to Okinawa, Japan. If you plan a visit to PEI get ready for a great time along with some great food !!! Farming and fishing are the two main industries in PEI along with the soil and good fishing this may account for the best food in the world according to Zagat.
