If you're looking for a road trip destination near Montreal that has historical significance AND that Instagram-worthy WOW factor, look no further than the Brockville Railway Tunnel which is just two hours away by car.\nThe restored railway tunnel, Canada's first, was built between 1854 and 1860 and spans 525 metres (1,722 feet) below the city of Brockville.\nEditor's Choice: This Little Quebec Island With Stunning River Views Is Perfect For A Spontaneous Getaway\n\n View this post on Instagram Life changes a lot. It may not always look like there is light on the other side of situations but remember that we never stop growing up. We never stop learning new things and our feelings about them change over time. It's so important to stay true to yourself but never be afraid of changes. The unknown is scary AF but most of us get through it and become better people. Never forget that. - : Photo taken in my hometown in Canada's first railway tunnel by my friend Jonny. . . #change #oldschool #nobaddays #possibilities #positivevibes #railway #tunnelvision #heritage #canada #hometown #nostalgia #brockville #skateboard #childhooddreams A post shared by Ari 🍄🌲👽 (@ariannasterritt) on Jun 12, 2020 at 1:06pm PDT\n\nSo, what makes it worth a visit?\nAside from the cultural significance and the opportunity to learn about a piece of Canada’s pre-Confederation industrial heritage, the tunnel now features a spectacular LED light system and sound system. \nEach year, a different light and sound show is designed to "highlight the tunnel’s engineering, architectural, and geological features" — which means the walls will light up and change colours as you walk through it. \n\n View this post on Instagram Atique: *running around dancing*🕺🏽 Me: Can we just take a cute picture?! . . . #brockville #brockvilletunnel #narcitytoronto #torontolife #anniversary #blogto #love #toronto #ontario #weekend #roadtrip #trip #travel #exploreontario #photography #photo #train #railway #instagram #couplegoals #couple #coupletravel #date #daytrip #summer #blog #blogger #married #pic #outfits A post shared by Zahra Shaikh (@zahradattu) on Aug 25, 2019 at 3:28pm PDT\n\nPeople have described the tunnel as "magical," "a forgotten relic to a modern day wonder" and "wonderfully unique" — we prefer to think of it as walking through a rainbow vortex to the moon.\nWhichever way you feel about this glowing underground attraction, chances are you'll get a damn fine Instagram photo out of the experience. \nThe tunnel is open daily from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. and public health measures are in effect. The season is expected to run until mid-October, depending on COVID-19 protocols. \nAccess is free but donations are welcome.\n\n\nBrockville Railway Tunnel\nPrice: By donation\nAddress: 1 Block House Island Road, Brockville, ON\nWhy You Need To Go: Historical significance AND that Instagram-worthy WOW factor — just two hours from Montreal\nWebsite\n\n\nBefore you get going, check our Responsible Travel Guide so you can be informed, be safe, be smart, and most of all, be respectful on your trip.
