A panoramic drive through Charlottetown offers a chance for you to learn the history of this quaint little town that today is still known as the Birthplace of the Confederation. Uncover the City's rich history as you drive along Great George Street and see sites such as Province House National Historic Site and St Dunstan's Basilica.

Next, head along the Trans-Canada Highway, through towns and villages toward the Confederation Bridge. This marvel of engineering, opened in 1997, is the longest bridge in the world that covers ice-prone waters. The bridge spans the Northumberland Strait, connecting Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. You'll have time for picture taking, browsing for souvenirs, or sampling some PEI potato chips, all while enjoying the view from Gateway Village. Take in the scenic vistas of the North Shore and Prince Edward Island National Park.

At the Anne of Green Gables National Historic Site, you will step inside the house that was made famous in the stories of Anne, PEIs beloved red-haired orphan. Or you may prefer to simply enjoy a stroll along Lover's Lane.

A light lunch is served at Fisherman's Wharf, giving you a chance to taste a local delicacy -- a lobster sandwich.

On the return drive to Charlottetown, stop for a sample of what is perhaps Canada's premium ice cream at Cow's Creamery.
