I have traveled to Maine from PEI every year since I was a child. I can tell you some routes etc fi you are renting a car to drive to PEI from either Bangor or Portland.

I can make suggestions but could help more if you mention a bit more about your travel party and your groups interests etc. What kind of accommodation are you interested in? There are lots of options that time of year.

Approx what time in the summer?

If your destination is PEI, why not fly to Charlottetown? (CYYG) Or, if you also plan to tour Nova Scotia, perhaps Halifax (CYHZ) would be more convenient?

Hi Rborn and welcome to the forums.

You can fly in the Charlottetown PEI, perhaps not direct but we do have daily flights connecting through major Canadian cities and one or two U.S. airlines fly in from the U.S. during the summer. If you were thinking of flying in to Maine and renting a car to drive to PEI, you'll have to check with the rental company to make sure you can take the car across the U.S. - Canada border, many do not allow this.

If you're not sure where to begin in your planning, you might want to take a look at the PEI tourism website here http://www.tourismpei.com/index.php3 lots of great ideas and itineraries.

You can also order a brochure if you prefer.

As some others have suggested, you can fly to Charlottetown or to Moncton which is just 2 hours away ( or even Halifax) and drive here or take the ferry to PEI. If there is no special reason to go to Maine I would fly to the MAritimes and rent a car in this area. I expect the flight to Maine + rental may be cheaper than the flight to the Maritimes but it is worth checking.

Air Canada - Nashville to Ch'town via Toronto. I've done this a couple of times really the only option that will take you direct to Ch'town with decent flight schedule

momof2cute - Pentiction is on the other side of the country in British Columbia ... enough with the ads for that resort and realize that not everyone plans to visit BC.
