There's no more denying it: the temperature in Montreal is dropping. As the old saying goes, if you can't beat 'em join 'em. In this case, that means living your best life — cold weather and all. Remember: lower temperatures aren't all bad. They bring colourful leaves, chunky sweaters and eventually snow — which can be quite beautiful to look at. The crisp air gives us an opportunity to appreciate being cozy, and one of the best ways to do that is by taking a fall or winter road trip to a cozy destination.
Coziness comes from the contrast of feeling snug and warm when compared to the elements outdoors.
That's why the coziness you feel at home is nothing compared to the coziness you feel sitting by a campfire, as snow falls all around you.
To fully take advantage of the coming months, it's best to go somewhere special.
Travel may be limited right now but there are many places to check out within driving distance of Montreal — in both Ontario and Quebec — whether you're looking for romance, family-friendly fun or going on a girls' trip.
The same goes whether you're looking to spend the day or several weeks.
So pack your comfiest slippers, crack open a good book, pour yourself some mulled wine — and take in the beauty that surrounds us.
Summer's over folks. And that's nothing to be sad about.
Drive from Montreal: One hour and 30 minutes
Montebello is more than just Fairmont Le Château — there's so much more to explore. And Kenauk Nature is a prime example.
In addition to renting a chalet or glamping in a yurt, there are countless activities that make this place worthwhile, such as hiking, clay shooting and dog sledding.
