17 minute drive. Take your bikes and join the Confederation Trail in Kensington. The trail covers all of PEI from tip to tip and I’ve done the full trail. Locals say the most beautiful scenery is from Morell to St Peter’s and I agree it is beautiful however I enjoyed Summerside to Wellington and biking through the small village. I also enjoyed going off the trail from time to time and exploring the small villages by bike. In O’Leary we enjoyed lunch at Maple House.

Wild blueberry U-Pick around Mid-August. I usually pick about 100 pounds as I love to have them for baking. It’s a great experience for children. Bring your own bowls. 3 KM outside Kensington on Route 104 (watch for signs). Be sure to call before going as weather conditions affect picking days and times.

Park downtown and take a walk along Victoria Row or Victoria Park (along the waterfront). They sometimes have busking and street singers along Victoria Row. Eat at the Pilot House (my favorite) or Sim's Corner Steakhouse & Oyster Bar. Grab an ice cream at Cow's Creamery in the Confederation Court Mall. 40 minute drive from cottage. It’s a beautiful historic city.

Beautiful Victoria, PEI has lovely shops and a must see half day trip. The restaurants on the wharf are great too.
It’s a great place for a walkabout and to take photos. The restaurants on the wharf are terrific too (I'd recomment the lobster barn - reservations may be required)! Visit Island Chocolate's too!

PEI Sand Dunes are fragile
Use only established pathways to the beach. The dunes and seagrass are fragile, protect the coastline and prevent erosion and once walked on can break down. Do not climb beach cliffs.
