It seems that every turn of the seasons brings something to offer lucky Montrealers...and fall is no exception. Don't let the shortening days and dipping temperatures get you down. There is much to celebrate during the fall season and during the month of October in particular. Here are a few examples of how Montrealers make the most of this beautiful time of year.
It shouldn't surprise you that some of Montrealers' favourite fall activities involve the outdoors. Fall is harvest season after all and mother nature has so much to offer. Some great outdoor activities for the whole family are a day trip to an orchard for apple picking, picking your own pumpkin for halloween at a local pumpkin patch, driving out to the townships or the laurentians to take in the fall colours in all their majesty, visiting an outdoor market like Jean Talon or Atwater market to inspect (and taste!) this season's bounty. Of course, you don't have to venture far. A walk around Beaver Lake or up the mountain to the Belvedere is also a fun and satisfying way to make the most of a beautiful fall day.
