It’s all about the packaging. Frugal people love packages. It makes them feel like they are making a deal. Sometimes also it is the convenience of wrapping up and entire vacation with one call . . . sort of like dealing with a travel agent. If you like packaging, there is plenty of choice on Prince Edward Island.
If you have ordered a visitor’s guide, you will see several packages. There is also a 40 page package brochure that you can get in paper or online. It has packages in 6 categories:
- Jaunts – short excursions
- Family Focus – these usually include accommodations an park or attraction passes
- Get Together – where you can interact with Island residents and share in their experience
- Golf – Accommodations and a round of golf. You can find other golf packages here and there; after all we are th GOLF Island.
- Island Traditions – Accommodations and traditional attractions like Green Gables House, the Anne Musical, etc.
- Sea of Love – For the romantically inclined
I also found packages at the bottom of this page.
If all inclusive is not what you are after, there are other packages. Perhaps you can get a good accommodation deal on your own and are just looking for something different to do. There are plenty of choices there also and for all types of budgets. There are 9 listed in Charlottetown, including:
Culinary Bootcamp. For $100 to $300 you can be a chef for a day or half day. It is a great way to have some fun and learn a bit more about food. The Culinary Institute in PEI has a national reputation for excellence.
Did I mention I like Tea? Did I mention I like Scrapbooking? Well, for just $30 per person, you can combine a garden tour, a fancy tea and scone, and make your own scrapbooking souvenir. All this and more at the Island Made Scrapbooking and Gift Shop in Winsloe.
