Love the East coast!!!
I Have family in the Gaspe, and that's where my honey wants to buy some property(ocean front of course) and have me build our retirement home there. As for PEI...spent a week in Souris back in 2000..beautiful island for sure. Almost got my ass kicked by some guy name Digger in Montague drinking one night(but that's another story).
If you asked me... it's hard to beat the down home hospitality of the maritimes.
If you don't believe me just ask any one of the thousands of travelers who's flight ended up in Gander Newfoundland after the 9-11 attack.
On that note...I tip my hat to all the Newfoundlanders who represented their province and our Country with such class and style that I'm sure the hospitality shown by the Islanders will be remembered by those travelers for as long as they live.
PEI doesnt have the long bush trails that you may find in othere provinces, but definitely have some wild pits to do some hard wheelin. Most of mine was in Prince County butI know theres lots of places to go outside the area.
