Scottish Highland vibes, anyone? Contrary to popular opinion, Prince Edward Island does, in fact, get a variety of weather. Heck, sometimes it even rains! But it’s all wonderful – provided you’re dressed appropriately and ready to embrace whatever comes your way. Hopping in the car to take a misty drive to the seaside or cozying up with a book in a café can be really romantic. Here’s a few ways to embrace the moodier weather.
2) THRIFT FINDS
Hit up antique shops across the island, or hunt for vintage goods in town at Green Eye Designs, Luxury Market Consignment, Back Alley Music, or the Charlottetown Flea Market (Sundays).
3) CHALLENGE YOUR BRAIN
Play a round of trivia at places like Churchill Arms, Hunter’s Ale House, The Hive + Honeycomb, HopYard, or The Old Triangle. Or, team up with your friends and race against the clock at the PEI Escape Rooms.
6) ROAD TRIPPIN’
Hit the beach or experience a coastal drive! The rainy weather makes a trip along the coast all the more mystical. Need some road trip inspo? Check out our Hit The Road article on page 29 – 33 of our 2022 Travel Guide.
9) HISTORIC STORYBOOKS
Drop in or book a tour of Beaconsfield Historic House, a fine example of Victorian-era architecture with a fascinating story to tell.
10) CALLING ALL BOOKWORMS
Get lost in one of our many independent bookstores. You’ll find three just on Queen St!
12) YOUR INNER ARTIST
Paint your own unique piece of pottery, play hundreds of different board games, and eat delicious snacks at the Hive + Honeycomb.
13) COZY UP

Get caught in the rain, we dare ya!
