Winter is a great time to make your way to Fort Anne National Historic Site – Stroll the ramparts or the perimeter trail (weather and trail conditions permitting) and enjoy the spectacular views of the Annapolis Basin and beyond. The earthen walls of the classic Vauban fortification provide the perfect vantage point and if the snow is right, they’re perfect for sledding too!
