Spinnaker's Landing

Prince Edward Island

This redeveloped waterfront is the highlight of Summerside. A continually expanding boardwalk allows you to wander and enjoy the harbor and its scenic surrounds. There are some very nice eateries, a stage for live music in the summer and numerous shops. A mock lighthouse provides adults with an attractive lookout and some local information, while a large model ship is a dream playground for kids.
