Fall may be one of the most loved and picturesque seasons of the year but it also somehow always seems to be the shortest. After fall comes our dreaded winter — and I don't know about you but I am personally not the biggest lover of our polar cold. That is why I like to explore all the things to do in Quebec in fall before the snow covers everything with an icy sheet.
Fall in this provine is essentially just a countdown to winter.
So it takes some extra motivation to take advantage our its short-lived splendour.
Hopefully this list helps.
