I. Love. Fall. Cold weather’s coming, school’s starting (or work), I’m getting fat again and all my money is gone. Yay.\nREAD ALSO: 11 Beautiful Weekend Road Trips That Are Close To Montreal You Need To Go On This Fall\nThis summer, my money went out from my bank account as fast as alcohol did from my stomach. And it probably did the same for you. The sad thing about being broke is you can’t do anything. My friends are planning to go on vacation during Labor Day or even during another week-end. Like, don’t you work ?\nAll my weekends are booked until next summer with amazing long shifts at my job. I, like most of you, just can’t afford to go on vacation this season. I even tried asking my parents for money. The answer came quickly. A big fat no.\nLuckily, Montreal can be fun in Fall. Seriously. It can.\nHere are some activities that you can do in Montreal if you’re drowning in debts and have a small budget :\n1. Go to the Gardens of Light\nUne photo publiée par Vidrohi (@vidrohi88) le 5 Sept. 2016 à 21h19 PDT\n4101 Rue Sherbrooke E, Montréal, QC H1X 2B2, Canada\nFrom September 2 to October 31, 2016, you can see beautiful lanterns illuminating the Botanical Garden. It is really cheap and you get to walk across some wonderful pieces of art. Basically, you get to visit China. Minus the 1500$ for the plane ticket.\nFacebook\n2. Go to a concert at Bell Center\nUne photo publiée par Parker Hamel (@parker_hamel) le 24 Août 2016 à 16h50 PDT\n1909 Avenue des Canadiens-de-Montréal\nA lot of cool groups are coming to town this fall. Tickets can be pretty expensive, but just be smart. Don’t buy the VIP package that includes sitting in the floor section, lights toys, stickers, and other useless things . The vibe at any concert is really nice no matter where you sit. Even if it’s in the far back.\nWebsite\n3. Go trick or treat in Westmount\nUne photo publiée par @esabs le 3 Sept. 2016 à 15h51 PDT\nBut I’m 25... So what ? Never miss an opportunity to get free candy. Plus, the big houses in Westmount have a lot of stairs. No 5 years old wants to climb a hundred stairs, so it leaves us with no more choice : these candies are yours to take. Those houses are meant for grown-ups. You could end up with a giant garbage bag full of candies.\n4. Add new photos from Plateau-Mont-Royal’s streets to your Instagram\nUne photo publiée par Ashley (@ashleysopko) le 4 Sept. 2016 à 13h15 PDT\nThis borough is unique. The architecture will amaze you.

Cheer for your favorite football team at the Molson Stadium\nUne photo publiée par Patrick Dumas (@darkesthours) le 18 Oct. 2015 à 10h40 PDT\n475 Pine Avenue West, Montreal\nCarabins or Redmen ? Fall is the football season and the Molson Stadium is just like a US campus. You get to experience what is like to be living in the United States. Without the fear of a mass shooting happening.
