Victoria

The village of Victoria is tucked neatly on the south shore of the Island, halfway between Charlottetown and Summerside Over the years the community has had many businesses and facilities including a bank, a rink, general stores, a fox farm, a blacksmith shop, and a farm equipment dealer. The rink was home to the Victoria Union\'s, one of the most successful hockey teams in the Maritimes. When the Trans-Canada Highway bypassed Victoria many businesses and facilities relocated to nearby Crapaud. Today, with a year-round population of under two hundred, there are a number of family-run businesses employing local people, just as there were in the prosperous years up to the 1950\'s. Visitors can get a true sense of the history of the village by viewing the exhibit Keeper\'s of the Light at the Victoria Seaport Museum, which is located in Palmer\'s Range Light. You can also stroll the tree-lined streets that were laid out in the 1860\'s, dine in a sea captain\'s house or sample handmade chocolates in one of the former general stores, attend a play in the historic community hall or watch the lobster fishers land their catch on the wharf.
