I feel like many of us have arrived at a typical crossroads: try to squeeze in one more vacation, or resign ourselves to staying put for the rest of the summer. With a time crunch or a dwindling budget in mind, many of us may have settled for the latter option. But the reality is, you may not have to concede so easily - what if a quick road trip somewhere close by was the perfect happy medium?
We've spent tons of time this summer investigating nearby destinations that are accessible to any budget, age, timeframe, and interest. Whether it's renting a cottage close to Montreal, adventuring to a hidden cave, going on a challenging hike, or hanging out at a beach, we've continually proved that you really don't need to go far (or spend a ton of money) to have an awesome summer getaway.
So stop telling yourself that there's no time or money left for you to have a fun summer trip with your friends. We've compiled a list of some of the most beautiful, exciting, and unique areas to explore close to Montreal, so no excuses, because half of the work is already done. The only thing you need to do is pull the YOLO card and make some memories.
1. Go cliff jumping at Lac des Piles
2. Explore the Lusk Cave and go hiking in the surrounding area
Sidenote: Justin Trudeau was recently spotted here, so I mean, do you need another reason?
