vicky vacay deal of the dayVictoria-by-the-Sea is a traveller’s delight. A charming place with less than 200 full-time residents, this seaside community presents an idyllic slice of Prince Edward Island life. Named the No. 14 Best Place to Visit in Canada in 2013, the community features boutique shops, a fine chocolatier, seafood delights, and a theatre experience that will take you back in time.

The Orient Hotel dates to 1900 and has seven rooms, including a two-bedroom suite, within its large building on the edge of town. Until late September, the Orient gives visitors a chance to enjoy the best of Victoria-by-the-Sea. Its Dinner & Theatre Package starts at $190 per night (based on double occupancy) and includes:

Guests can upgrade to one-bedroom ($225 per night) or two-bedroom ($360) suites.

The Victoria Playhouse’s shows for the remainder of the summer include “Top Hats and Tales,” a tribute to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, and the romantic play “Boy Meets Girl.” The theatre, built in the early 20th century, also features concerts.

Among the menu items at the Landmark Cafe are lobster rolls and sautéed scallops.

Why Victoria-by-the-Sea Ranks in the Vacay.ca Top 20

Vacay.ca wrote: “No. 14: A quaint, peaceful and utterly delightful little village about an hour’s drive from Charlottetown, Victoria-by-the-Sea scores big for its chocolate shops, community theatre, inns and scenery. Add in its proximity to some of the best golf courses in Canada, those famous red-sand beaches of PEI, and notable attractions such as Avonlea and the Anne of Green Gables house, and Victoria-by-the-Sea turns into a smart and affordable choice to base your stay on the island.”
