Victoria, PEI on TransCanadaHighway.com
Victoria is about 30 minutes from Charlottetown, about halfway to the Confederation Bridge along highway 1. The town's history is rich with shipbuilding, and at the time of Confederation was one of the island's busiest ports. As the age of wooden sailing ships ended, Victoria became the point of departure for cattle herds, though now it is best known for its several blocks of craft shops and its arts colony. The town features the PEI Summer Playhouse theatre, and has a traditionally rigged schooner offering cruises from Victoria harbour.
