What to See & Do
If you’re coming to Annapolis Royal from outside the province, we encourage you to get a copy of the Doers’ & Dreamers’ Guide, an annual publication of the Nova Scotia Department of Tourism, Culture and Heritage. It’s a well-organized, thorough and user-friendly book that no visitor should be without. You can have a copy of the Guide mailed to you by ordering online (www.novascotia.com), or phone (800) 565-0000.
Closer to home, we recommend the Destination Southwest Nova Scotia Guide, which covers the Evangeline Trail and Lighthouse Routes. It can be ordered from the website: www.destinationsouthwestnova.com or by calling 866-456-5874. You can also visit valleytourism.ca. This site details the events, festivals and things to see and do in the Annapolis Valley.
Focusing on Annapolis Royal and the surrounding area, The Explorer has everything you need. It’s a local visitor guide that covers attractions, activities and services you’ll find in the immediate vicinity.
If you arrive here between May 15 and October 15, the Town has knowledgeable and friendly staff to guide you. You’ll find them at the Visitor Information Centre, located at the Tidal Power Plant, 236 Prince Albert Road. During the winter months you are welcome to stop by the Town Hall at 285 St. George Street, where all of your questions will be answered. Our year-round Visitor Information telephone number is 902-532-5454.
