Fall is finally here, and I don't know about all of you but I'm so relieved! I love fall and everything about it. The big chunky sweaters, circle scarves, black boots and cozy tea, there's absolutely nothing wrong with this season whatsoever.\nI think the very best part of this season is the changing colours of the leaves. Once the air cools down from humid, hot temperatures to cool, crisp ones the leaves also change from bright, lively green to gorgeous red, orange, and yellows. These colours are a symbol of the leaves dying and falling off for the winter months, but even though it's a symbol of the cold months to come it's still incredibly beautiful.\nCheck out this list below of the most amazing places close to Montreal you can see the best fall colours!\n1.
