Annapolis Royal Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

One of Canada’s oldest settlements, this gracious town has a pleasant site overlooking the great basin of the Annapolis River. Acadians reclaimed the marshland by building a dam, across the river with floodgates to control the water level. Twice a day the Bay of Fundy tides rush in, reversing the river’s flow. The quiet charm of the town belies its turbulent past as the site of French-English battles and Acadian struggles. The town’s full-time population is small, but annually it attracts upwards of 100,000 visitors to its historic sites and elegant inns.
