That time has come upon us again as many head to the beach to bask in the Summer sun, and the beaches of Prince Edward Island are no different. Prince Edward Island, is the smallest province in both land area and population with approximately 146,000 residents and the only province of Canada to have no land boundary. It is also known for being the birthplace of Canada, potatoe farming, amazing beaches and for being a tourist destination since well before Canada’s Confederation. But a lot has changed; you do not have to take a boat to get on or off the Island any more, although the option is still available. One thing that has not changed over the years is the love for this Island paradise and the many wonders that it offers. More than 1.4 million tourists visit the tiny Island of Prince Edward Island yearly, with the majority of that coming in the summer months. Along with the tourists comes spending with more than $400 million being pumped into the economy.
