      About this Charlottetown tour

      Anne Shirley came to love Prince Edward Island: its beautiful shoreline, charming villages, and amiable people. You may know her better as Anne of Green Gables, and that she's an entirely fictional character shouldn't matter an iota. After all, Lucy Maud Montgomery, the woman who brought Anne to life, based the entire story around the island, from its people to its landscapes, villages, and landmarks.

      The Avonlea so beloved by Anne may not be real, but it was inspired by the places and experiences of the author's childhood on the island – Cavendish and New Glasgow among them. The Green Gables farmhouse is in Cavendish, also home to Avonlea Village and the site of L.M. Montgomery's house, where her descendants still live.

      Just like her storied character, the author took many long walks on the island's coastal dunes. As you stroll along the boardwalk and watch the piping plovers pecking at the sand and taking flight above the shoreline, you may wonder if it's Anne that has entranced readers for over a hundred years, or the beautiful island she lived on.

       If you have a bad childhood, make up a better one

      Anne of Green Gables was an orphan, and her creator was a virtual one. Lucy Maud Montgomery's mother died of TB when she was still a toddler, so her father sent her to live with her maternal grandparents in Cavendish. They were strict and unforgiving – the opposite of the novel's fictional Cuthberts – leading Lucy to spend much of her lonely childhood creating fictional worlds that would eventually include Anne.
