Thanks, Self-Employed SWAMI for sending me the link. :)
I have a travel trailer at Sunset Campground in Cavendish just down the road from the Anne of Green Gables house. I am not too familiar with places down east or up west on the island, but we have our favourites on the north shore.
Camping is definitely the cheapest way to go in that tourist hotspot, and the camping at the National Park is the cheapest from what I understand.
Green Gables itself is fairly inexpensive and there are tours. Just don't agree to paying to see where LM Montgomery grew up. What they don't tell you is that the farmhouse was pulled down in the 30's and all that is left there now is the foundation. There are nice walking trails on the property. I also spend a lot of time on the walking and cycling trails at the National Park and there is a perfect spot on New London Bay.
Be sure to check out the Cavendish Post Office which is really a small free museum and showcases many items from LM Montgomery's life.
There is a big seafood restaurant in nearby North Rustico, and Carr's Oyster bar in Stanley Bridge. My favourite restaurant there is Chez Yvonne in Cavendish which has a delicious turkey dinner on Sundays and the best raspberry cream pie you've ever tasted. Also, there is this fabulous home bakery run by a lady named Mary on route 6 near North Rustico. It's inexpensive and she is such a great baker. I'll have to see if I can find the street address. There is also a really good bakery/restaurant in Hunter River. I think it's called By the River Cafe.
There are twice a week Ceilidhs at a community centre in Stanley Bridge which are inexpensive and give a good idea of the island music and fiddling traditions.
I haven't done this yet, but I plan to go one Sunday to the Cavendish United Church and take in a service. That's the same church where Montgomery's husband was a minister.
Montgomery was born in New London and the house where she was born is an historical site, but I haven't been there so can't comment on what it's like. I've driven past. It's cute. Apparently New London was the community she based Glen St. Mary
on. Be sure to check out French River for some really beautiful views...although the whole island is beautiful.
Definitely check out the Confederation Trail for cycling. Also, there is a long bike trail along the north shore from Cavendish to North Rustico.
Cavendish Tourist Mart isn't bad for groceries, but it is cheaper to do big grocery shops in Charlottetown or Summerside.
I'm there from July 1st until sometime in August if you'd like to meet up.
