Not knowing much about Anne of Green Gables, it was unfortunate that Cavendish leaned so hard into the tourist attraction around it. We were there for the National Park, and the rest was very tacky.

Stumbled on this looking for dinner. Really cute concept. Has a feel of a village with gravel street and concrete sidewalks with white picket fences. Includes a church also. Mostly food places, a gift shop or 2 and a clothing store. Fun just to eat...More

We went hoping to see sights of Avonlea and instead all of the buildings have been converted to art stores or restaurants; most of which were closed for the season when we went in early September. The gift shop was even a let down.

We arrived 1.5 hours prior to the close of the season. We shopped a bit, and I was able to take pictures of the location without a lot of others around. The area is nice, but the shoppes aren't much different than other shops on...More
