Towns of the Annapolis Valley: Middleton

November 27, 2015 

  • Middleton Nova Scotia

Known as the 'Heart Of The Valley', Middleton is home to a large part of Nova Scotia's history. Originally, it had two major Canadian rail roads running through it and became the finest first class luxury point outside of Halifax. 

Today it's home to just over 2,000 residents, many of whom were born and raised there. 

Visit an authentic railway-station Museum, one of three North American water-run clocks and one of five surviving Loyalist Churches in Nova Scotia. The Macdonald Museum, housed in the first consolidated school in Canada, preserves and exhibits Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley history.

Located a short drive from our Bay of Fundy resort, Middleton is the perfect stop on your way to Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa

Saturday is the day for weddings. Venues have Saturdays booked months and years in advance, so it's almost impossible to get your dream location. 

What if Saturday wasn't the best day? What if you could spend more time with family, make your guests happy and still have your dream wedding? 

The new trend is Friday and Sunday weddings, and we'll tell you why! 

Availability! Choosing to have your wedding on a day that isnt typical, means that your perfect wedding venue has a huge chance of being available! 

Discounts! Venues, caterers, photographers, the list goes on, their prices change as soon as your day does. You could be saving thousands just by switching your special day to a Friday or Sunday! 

Trend Setter! Everyone gets married on a Saturday, be different! Surprisingly, your guests will  thank you for having a Sunday wedding! It's easier to get a Monday off rather than a Friday and they will appreciate the long weekend!
