Ask Arnold… Bay Vista Motel In-house Tour GuideArnold "Where to Go"

Arnold got his start in the tourism business at the age of 18 serving cocktails in the lounge which was at one time part of the Bay Vista. Some 36 years later, Arnold is still knee-deep in PEI culture, heritage and beaches. Who better to recommend the best places to eat, play, or explore while on your Island vacation?

Find the best cherry salsa or the best chowder in the land, the newest theatrical delight or a quiet place for two with live music. Or for the whole family, a foot-stomping Ceilidh. Bet you didn’t know about our heritage roads, the best places to take in a sunset or where to find a private beach.

Arnold has been telling tourists where to go for years! And if Arnold doesn’t know it about PEI then you don’t need to know it!

If you are looking for the True Prince Edward Island experience, a little off the beaten path or something a little more to your liking than the traditional stops, then Arnold is the guy to chat with.
