Toronto to PEI

We are planning a road trip to PEI next month. We are planning to stop in Springfield, Boston, and Bar Harbor before reaching PEI. Has anyone ever driven this route before? Are there a lot of steep grades to climb and descend? This is our first year with the TT so we still getting use to it. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I don't think there will be any issues along that route. We've been through a few times and it was fairly smooth sailing. Have fun in PEI!

Thanks. That is encouraging. Coming back, we will be stopping at Cooperstown, N.Y. before heading home.

That'll be fun. You may want to consider at some point taking the trip through NB and Quebec. I think I enjoy that one better. Nice drive along the St. Lawrence.

We are enroute

We have started our vacation last week. We are staying at the KOA sites for all our stops except in PEI. We have stayed at the Springfield KOA and the Boston/Cape Cod KOA. People are friendly and the quality of the KOA have been consistently excellent. We will be staying just overnight at the Bucksport KOA before heading to PEI.

The highlights were visiting the museums in Springfield. The Basketball Hall of Fame was the most interactive and fun museum that we have been to.

Boston was fun. We walked the Freedom Trail which was really informative and interesting. I would highly recommend the Boston/Cape Cod KOA.

If you're in PEI check out Twin Shores, by far the best campground in PEI

We stayed at Bucksport/Fort Knox KOA instead of Bar Harbor because it was closer to the highway and we were just staying one night. in hindsight, we should have stayed a few more nights because the campground was just awesome. it was smaller than the previous ones we were at but it was well organized and the hosts were very hospitable. The area is beautiful and we plan to go back and stay longer.


As for PEI, we are staying at the Sunset Campground. It is huge and we missed the Cavendish Beach Music Festival so it is quiet. Mainly families and everyone is very pleasant. We are looking forward to exploring the island while it is still sunny. Forecast is calling for rain in the middle of the week but we are praying the weather will hold up.

This was our third trip to PEI and not our last. We just came back two days ago.


I know Cavendish beach is a provincial park and will charge you to get in, but there are beaches more secluded and FREE ! We love the beach in French River at the end of Cape road......it's quite a long beach but quiet and peaceful (not too many people). There's even a light house there....look it up online!



We were at Sunset Campground three years ago, and we loved it. This year we tried another one and it was New Glasgow Highlands Campground......great reviews and we know why!
With this being said, I have a few restaurants you might be interested in:


Prince Edward Preserve Company: The food is great. We had the mussels and fish cakes. You have to try their lobster chowder (soooooo good!)


New Glasgow Lobster Suppers: The price might scare you a bit, but everything is included: Bread, mussels, salad, lobster , coffee and dessert. The salad is a little weird (salad, cole slaw and potato salad all in the same plate). Everything was good.


Another place to visit in the area is Garden of Hope: beautiful botanical garden and the cost is whatever you want to give....... as long you don't go to the butterfly exhibit which is I think $8.00 a person.


We love PEI and wish you the best of trip

Prince Edward Island, a province of your neighbor to the north.
