My friends and I are going to drive from New York City to Prince Edward Island, Canada. I'm so excited. We'll probably stop in Maine or somewhere and stop for the night. We may even do that part in more than one day and stop in Boston overnight then Maine overnight.
Our goal is Prince Edward Island. It's the hundredth anniversary of the publication of one of my favorite books, ANNE OF GREEN GABLES, by LM Montgomery. It's cheesy as all hell and definitely a "girly book". but I have no shame.
PEI has all this touristy stuff like reenactments of scenes from the book, theatrical reproductions, etc...
What should I add to our trip? I want whole belly clams, ice cream stands shaped like ice cream cones, you know, road trip stuff. I also found St Stephen, canada's famous "chocolate town".
Independent bookstores are good. Drive in movies. Um... Tips for how to save some money.
Oh. we camp, so we're not looking for B&Bs or hotels. We're poor. :) We'd rather spend our dough on good eats or a good show.
