Fodor's Review

Because Annapolis Royal flip-flopped between the French and English so many times, the past here is a complicated affair, but the members of the historical association are happy to walk you through it. They've developed a series of high-season strolls led by guides dressed in typical 18th-century fashion. This is an entertaining way to learn more about the historic significance and cultural heritage of the region. Options include daytime tours of the National Historic District and sites associated with the Acadian Experience, and in July and August there's an Acadian Candlelight tour on Monday nights. Reservations for tours aren't necessary, but call or check the website for times. The wildly popular Candlelight Graveyard Tour of Canada's oldest English cemetery (at Fort Anne) takes place at 9:30 pm several times a week from early June through mid-October. The association has put together a self-guided walk pamphlet for visitors who'd rather wander independently.
