Prince Edward Island is in the No. 11 spot in Fodor’s Go List 2018: 52 places to remind you what a wonderful world this is.
On the Fodor’s site, Canada’s smallest province is described as an “irresistible combination of rolling green hills and excellent beaches and seascapes, with bountiful shellfish, a gentle pace and a lively music scene.”
It also recommends spots to visit, such as at the new Stompin’ Tom Centre in Skinners Pond, various Island beaches, the Culinary Institute of Canada and Green Gables Heritage Place, as well as places to stay and when to visit.
The write-up even provides an insider tip: “Indulge in the must-have P.E.I. sandwich, the lobster roll. A favorite with locals, Lobster Barn Pub & Eatery is in idyllic Victoria-by-the-Sea, an Instagram-worthy shore village between Charlottetown and Summerside. The secret’s in the homemade mayonnaise and generous amount of shelled lobster.”
Released on Thursday, the list is compiled as a reminder for people to hold strong to their enthusiasm for exploration.
“To be a part of something enormous. To observe and experience. To allow your mind to expand and your heart to enlarge. To travel, witness life and earth, savor the varieties, and marvel the majesty. To look around you. To be alive. To get going. And to always, always, always remember what a wonderful world this is,” says Jeremy Tarr, digital editorial director and Rachael Levitt, managing editor.
Marrakesh, Morocco, ranked No. 1 on the Go List, while P.E.I. was sandwiched between the 10th ranked Belize and No. 11, Taipei, Taiwan.
Meanwhile, Fodor's also published its No List for 2018, which was topped by the Galapagos Islands.
"... Be very careful when considering the Galápagos as a destination because once the things that make it such a magical place are gone—the fearless animals, the unique species, the otherworldly environments—we’ll never get them back," said Fodor's in its description.
