Why You Need To Experience PEI This Winter

Prince Edward Island may be chilly during the winter months, but it’s certainly not lacking in fun and unique adventures! Get yourself out of the house and discover all the charm of an Island winter. From tip to tip of PEI, there’s experiences worth leaving the house for, each of them entertaining, inspiring, and just plain fun. Here are the winter activities you just can’t miss this season!


Arts Abound at Confederation Centre

Do the snow days have you feeling cooped up? Are you yearning for a night out of the house? Every week, Confederation Centre of the Arts has something to offer you, no matter your interests! Continue the culture crawl at the Homburg Theatre or across the street at The Mack for any one of their shows this winter. Performances range from classical music, to singer-songwriters; comedy shows, to dance. Itching for a quiet, artsy evening instead? The Art Gallery is a great way to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the arts and culture happening around us. Sounds like the ideal night out to us!


You’ll Find All Things Winter at Mill River Resort

When it comes to a snowy winter day, you really only have two options: have the perfect, comfy-cozy day inside, or bundle up to have a fun and adventurous snow day outside! Conveniently, Mill River Resort offers the best of both worlds. Take the time this winter to escape for a family fun winter getaway with cross country skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, tubing, or stay inside for delicious meals, invigorating spa treatments, and fun at the Aquaplex! There’s no lack of fun at Mill River, no matter the season.


And a perfect scene – morning to night at bar1911.

If you want in on the secret of truly great spots, here’s our tip: bar1911 is the place to go. When you can get deliciously roasted coffee, local craft beer, and an excellent menu all in one comfy-cozy, feels-like-home spot, what more could you ask for? Brewing locally roasted coffee from across Eastern Canada, this will be your new morning (and afternoon!) go-to, and after work you can swing back for to check out their 20-tap list of locally brewed beers and ciders! More than that, bar1911 serves as a stellar music and events venue, hosting incredible artists and comedians all year round. It can’t get much better than a good friend, sweet music, and a great drink all in one evening.



After All, PEI’s Winter Beauty Is Spectacular

More than just the incredible events that PEI puts on all winter long, the Island becomes a magical winter wonderland that’s just waiting to be explored. Check out The Great George Hotel in Charlottetown to rent out snowshoes so you can explore PEI from top to bottom, and the Credit Union Place in Summerside is host to any number of winter activities all over the city! Island trails are a great way to experience the hidden beauty across PEI, skating rinks are an ever popular source of great fun, and if you really want to embrace the season, why not try camping? Treetop Haven is open year round and is the perfect weekend getaway spot to relax and unwind. The winter fun never ends!
