Either you get it or you don’t

As one visitor to Pelee Island put it, “either you understand the ‘island feel,’ with its laid-back attitude, warm friendly people and good fresh food – or you don’t.” If you’re looking for a relaxed family getaway, Pelee Island might be just the place. A drop of land in the middle of Lake Erie, the island has a busy summer season; the rest of the year, the 300 permanent residents enjoy a peaceful farming and fishing life. Go in fall to avoid the crowds and enjoy the colours. Walk the beaches and quiet lanes and visit The Pelee Island Winery, Canada’s oldest estate winery founded in 1866. The brand new Kite Museum isn’t very big, but it’s crammed with kites from all over the world, and promises an afternoon of fun.
