Ship to Shore - In the Island's Ship to Shore region, history is preserved in many ways. A walking tour of Summerside's tree-lined streets past stately heritage homes will reveal much about this community. Look for the excellent walking tour guidebook published by the City of Summerside. In the downtown area, significant events in the town's past have been portrayed in dramatic fashion in large murals at locations such as the library and the fire hall and visitors can learn more about the boatbuilding and fishing heritage at the boatshed at Spinnakers' Landing on the Summerside Waterfront. This year at the Eptek Centre an exhibit documents Islanders' relationship with the sea.
Sunsets and Seascapes - The character of the most westerly part of the Island is very well described by its Sunsets & Seascapes title. Red sandstone cliffs formed by wind and water, gleaming white lighthouses stark against brilliant sunsets, scenes of Islanders busy plying their trades on the land and the sea; these are images most familiar to travellers in the area west of Portage.
