Annapolis Royal, located on the Annapolis Basin, an inlet of the Bay of Fundy, was founded in 1605. Designated as a National Historic Site, it is considered to be Canada’s oldest continuously inhabited settlement of European immigrants, and is often referred to as the “cradle of our nation”.
Visitors to Annapolis Royal will find stunning views of the Annapolis Basin and a front row seat to witness the ebb and flow of the world’s highest tides. While walking along some of Canada’s oldest streetscapes, summer wanderers will find a wealth of heritage buildings, shops, restaurants and historic inns. A trip to the Fort Anne National Historic site is a must for history lovers. And you won’t want to miss the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens, which was Canada’s 2015 Garden of the Year winner.
