Green Gables Shore
Discover the country that inspired a literary classic
This region is a spectacular piece of Prince Edward Island’s acclaimed scenic landscape. Visitors journey from across the continent to explore the area’s red sandstone cliffs, white-sand beaches and rolling farm fields.
Devotees of the Anne of Green Gables novels make their way to Green Gables Shore in pilgrimage-like fashion to visit the many sites that pay tribute to their heroine and her creator, Lucy Maud Montgomery. Your first stop will be Green Gables Heritage Place at L.M. Montgomery's Cavendish National Historic Site. Here is the preserved gabled house that inspired the setting of Montgomery's story of the red-haired orphan. Explore the original house and garden, including the Haunted Wood and Lovers Lane.
Avonlea Village has recreated the type of rural community where Anne lived with interactive experiences, including horse and wagon rides, oyster shucking, spoons lessons, dance lessons and pig races. Heritage buildings and exhibits set the stage for a memorable day in the community of Avonlea.
Prince Edward Island National Park is home to sand dunes, barrier islands and sandspits, miles of sandy beaches, sandstone cliffs, wetlands and forests. The National Park also features Dalvay-by-the-Sea National Historic Site, the late 1800s summer home of an oil tycoon.
