The Annapolis Royal area is that special kind of place that lingers sweetly in your mind and memory. Cradled within a land and seascape of serene natural beauty, the region rests in the palm of a long glacial valley severed by the Annapolis River and Tidal Basin. Buffered by two mountain ridges on the north and south, the land on either side of the river widens into a broad swath of salt marsh and cultivated earth. Over the North Mountain lies the Bay of Fundy and to the south, an expanse of lakes, a national park and protected wilderness areas.
The region’s cultural hub, the town of Annapolis Royal, is one of the Maritimes most culturally diverse and welcoming communities. With its beautifully preserved historic and architectural legacy of Victorian, Georgian and Arts & Crafts homes, it is the perfect backdrop to the artistic energy emanating from the town’s waterfront shopping district, art galleries, farmers’ market, gardens and theatre.
