As we grew up as kids, and learned to read, some of the books that were popular were Lucy Maud Montgomery’s books about Anne Shirley. Those stories were set in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island, a very beautiful and pastoral recreation area. So could possibly be on that island that would make it qualify for a Warped site? Read on and you’ll find out.
Prince Edward Island is home to the Potato Museum, the only one of its kind in the world. The Prince Edward Island Potato Museum is located in the community of O’Leary in the western part of Canada’s smallest province. The museum depicts an interesting display of the potato industry, and houses a large collection of farm implements and machinery related to the growing and harvesting of potatoes. It currently houses the largest collection of potato artifacts in the world.
Now it may seem kind of strange visiting a museum like this, but you have to remember that PEI is a very quite and unassuming place, and the like to show off their local culture. It can be a pleasant way to spend two or three hours of your vacation. The Warp-o-Meter gives this site a 6.5 rating, but then it’s always been a sucker for a good baked potato bar.
