Ah, maple syrup. Is there anything better than that sweet, sticky miracle juice? Absolutely not. Unless you've sucked it straight out of a tree, laid it out on some ice cold snow, and rolled a wooden stick through it.
There's absolutely nothing like the tire d'érable; that beautiful activity that takes place in every Quebec cabane à sucre at the end of winter/beginning of spring. There's also nothing quite like the Quebec sugar shack feast that takes place every year, as well. Bacon, maple syrup, beans, sugar pie, and pea soup? Yes. Please.
Of course, finding the proper place for all your sugar-induced needs can be a little difficult. There are tons of awesome spots to go sugaring off around Montreal; but if you're not looking to travel tons, then I've got your back. These cabanes à sucre are all close to Montreal - about an hour drive or less - meaning that you can save that gas money and buy a whole tub (or 3) of pure Quebec maple syrup. Read on for 30 Sugar Shacks Close To Montreal; and don't forget to call these places before heading out, just in case you have to reserve your spot!
