The Confederation Bridge is 12.9 km long and thus Canada’s longest bridge.
It connects Prince Edward Island, Canada’s smallest province with the mainland and carries a part of the Trans-Canada Highway. On the bridge there is a speed limit of 80 km, so that the journey across the 12.9 km long toll bridge takes nearly a quarter of an hour.
The Confederation Bridge is the longest bridge in the world leading across waters which completely freezes in Winter.
Also for Americans, Prince Edward Island is a popular tourist destination. Besides the long sandy beaches in the north, the European appearance of the landscape lures the tourists.
The interior of the island is dominated by agriculture and livestock breeding. Besides grain, many potatoes and vegetables are grown.
