For Daily Updates and the inside scoop on What's Happening in the Annapolis Royal Area, we invite you to follow the Explorer on Facebook.

The Explorer recently co-sponsored a series of five short MEET YOU IN ANNAPOLIS ROYAL VIDEOS filmed by Rediscovering Canada Television. We invite you to join us for a virtual visit to historic, scenic and fun Annapolis Royal -- Nova Scotia's first capital.

Winner of “The World’s Most Liveable Small Community”, “Prince of Wales” and numerous “Communities in Bloom” awards, Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia was featured in the March 17, 2014 edition of MacLean's Magazine as one of the "10 PLACES YOU'VE GOT TO SEE" in Canada in 2014, co-sponsored by Jeep. The town was also showcased in a special "10 PLACES YOU'VE GOT TO SEE" VIDEO and a JEEP CHEROKEE TELEVISION COMMERICAL in conjunction with their "Life is Calling" series.



This Old House Magazine selected Annapolis Royal in 2012 as one of the sixty-one most vibrant neighborhoods in North America for one-of-a-kind, period houses. If you love design -- houses, garden, art, crafts, antiques, vintage and modern creations -- you will love Annapolis Royal! The area is more than Canada's birthplace...it is a centre for the design arts...a unique design destination. Originally called Te'wapskik by the Mi'kmaq, named Port Royal in 1604 by the French and renamed Annapolis Royal in 1710 by the British, it is one of the oldest permanent European settlements in the country -- and the most fought-over land in Canadian history.

In 2012 Annapolis Royal was the recipient of CBC Maritime's prestigious 2012 Cultureville Award in recognition of its vibrant arts community, culture and heritage. With a population of approximately 481 residents, Annapolis Royal is the smallest incorporated town in Nova Scotia, but with over 130 registered heritage properties, it is one of the largest National Historic Districts in Canada. Nestled between two scenic rivers (with the world-famous Bay of Fundy only 10 minutes away), Historic, Scenic and Fun Annapolis Royal and its surrounding area make the perfect vacation destination. Whether you spend a day, vacation or a lifetime, Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia is a great place to live life to the fullest.

From our corner of the world to yours, we wish you and your loved ones a happy day. Hope to "Meet YOU in Annapolis Royal" soon! Until you can explore in person...

ENJOY YOUR VIRTUAL VISIIT
