Introducing Annapolis Valley & French Shore
Heading up the French Shore you’ll be regularly waved to by the Stella Maris, the single-starred, tri-colored Acadian flag. Admire the many elaborate Catholic churches, stop at a roadside eatery to sample Acadian rappie pie and take a walk along a fine-sand beach. If you stay longer, don’t miss the chance to sample the region’s foot-tapping music performances that take place regularly throughout the summer.
Once the main breadbasket for colonial Canada, the Annapolis Valley still produces much of Nova Scotia’s fresh produce, especially apples. In more recent years, a number of wineries have taken advantage of the sandy soil. Make sure to get to the Fundy coast at Annapolis Royal and eastwards for tidal vistas over patchwork farmland, red sands and undulating hills.
