It is that time of the year again. Fall has officially arrived and I legitimately very excited to put away my sundresses and switch it up for some cute fall looks.
Everyone knows that fall is the most picturesque of all the seasons in our city. The stunning colours, crisp air and of course the adorable outfits is what makes this season my favourite of them all.
With this season being the most photogenic of them all, you should totally take advantage and get some cute pictures while you can. Throw together a cute outfit, round up the troops and set yourself on an adventure, just make sure you bring your phone, you are going to want to take pictures!
There are so many fun and adorable fall activities to do with you significant other, your family members and of course your crew. Fall isn’t only about apple picking and Halloween, it is also about the changes and beauty that nature provides us with, so why not take advantage of that.
Go apple picking
Did fall even happen if you didn’t post a picture of you apple picking?
Whenever you think of fall activities, apple picking is always at the top of your list.
Apple picking is one of the most fun activities during this season. Not only do you get to spend a fun day out in nature, while picking apples but you get to enjoy those apples after the day is over.
There are so many delicious things you can make with leftover apples such as apple pie, apple cake and of course, apple cinnamon muffins!
Visit the 'Gardens of Light' Lantern Festival
The Montreal Botanical Gardens are without a doubt one of the most mystical destinations in the city.
During the months of fall, they open their doors to an entirely new universe and it is honestly breathtaking.
The gardens are filled with exquisite and elaborate laterns that make for the most picturesque Instagram content your feed has ever seen.

Go pumpkin picking
Pumpkin picking is right up there with apple picking, it is one of those staple fall activities that everyone ends up doing because it is that fun. It is a great thing to do with your loved ones and you are guaranteed to get some cute pictures out of the day.
Nothing says fall more than a pumpkin and similar to apple picking, there is so much to do with the pumpkins when you get home.
Not only can you use them as decoration or decorate them yourself but you can also cook so many incredible things with pumpkins.
From pumpkin pie to pumpkin scones and even simple pumpkin seeds, pumpkin picking is really the gift that keeps on giving.

Canoe through a breathtaking water labyrinth during peak fall foliage

This may be a little drive away but you will not regret the time spent in the car when the beauty that is nature surrounds you while you ride through the water, soaking fall in.
Hike up Mont Royal
Mount Royal is always beautiful but during fall, it is next-level gorgeous.
Taking a hike through the stunning foliage on Mount Royal is my favorite thing to do in fall. Not only is it a gorgeous area to take photos at but it is one of the most serene and relaxing places in Montreal.
The colours, the fresh cool air and the scent of fall will mesmerize you, not to mention it is great exercise!
Don't like walking? Try taking a bike ride instead!
Drink a PSL beside Beaver Lake
There is nothing more basic than having a photo-shoot at beaver lake while enjoying a pumpkin spice latte but that is what fall is about, isn’t it?
As fall arrives, the change of colours reflecting on Beaver Lake is astonishing and makes for the most picturesque activity ever.
Although the PSL isn’t a must, it is kind of necessary... don't you think?
