If you love design – houses, gardens, 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, this is one of the country's oldest permanent European settlements -- and the most fought land in Canadian history.

Winner of “The World’s Most Liveable Small Community”, “Prince of Wales” and numerous “Communities in Bloom” awards, Annapolis Royal was featured in "This Old House" Magazine in 2012 as one of the sixty-one most vibrant neighborhoods in North America for one-of-a-kind, period houses. The Town was recently featured in the March 17, 2014 issue of MacLean's Magazine as one of the "10 Places You've Got to See" in Canada in 2014. Annapolis Royal was also 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 VISIT!
