The King family have lived in a small farming community called Avonlea on Prince Edward Island for generations.

I've seen Road plenty of times, and I'd like to say, it's a pretty good series. It mixes real life drama with historical views, and Avonlea, the town, of course, is the perfect place for this highly entertaining show, and fantastic characters. All the characters, Felicity, Felix, and Sarah being my favourites, add their own...spice, if you will, to the recipe that creates this entertaining series.

Happy watching, everyone,
