When making the circuit of Prince Edward Island, take time to stop at Port Hill (56 mi/90 km west of Charlottetown) to see the Green Park Shipbuilding Museum and the historic Yeo House. Built on the site of an old shipyard, this park will take you back to the days of the great oceangoing wooden vessels. Among the sights are the restored house of the shipyard's owner and an unfinished ship that looks as though it's still under construction.
Nearby Lennox Island is the home of the Mi'kmaq first nation. Native artifacts and paintings are on display there, and a gift shop sells beaded and silver jewelry, pottery and woven baskets—all made by tribe members. The Lennox Island Aboriginal Ecotourism Complex provides outdoor adventure, nature excursions and traditional meals.
