“This engaging community with its historical romance, open spaces
and arts scene lured us from the city to the country.”

Annapolis Royal is that special kind of place that lingers sweetly in your mind and memory.  The town’s beautifully preserved historic and architectural legacy with its mix of Victorian, Georgian and Arts & Crafts homes, is the perfect backdrop to the artistic energy emanating from the shops, art galleries, farmers’ market, gardens and theatre.  Given this dynamic combination, it’s no wonder the United Nations Environment Programme anointed it, “The most livable small town in the world.”

Cradled within a land and seascape of serene natural beauty, the town rests in the palm of a long glacial valley severed by the Annapolis River.  Buffered by two small mountain ranges 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 magnificent Bay of Fundy, to the south, an expanse of lakes, a national park and protected wilderness areas.  With four distinct seasons, the region is ideal for kayaking, canoeing, hiking, snowshoeing, backcountry camping and other outdoor activities; or simply sitting back and savouring the view.

There is an active and vibrant arts community, which supports a nationally recognized gallery, and a theatre which presents a mix of local and traveling productions as well as current movies each week.  For those who like an occasional urban experience, the bright lights of Halifax are only two hours away.
