Sure, you could take a leisurely stroll around your neighbourhood with your Pumpkin Spice Latte and view the changing of the leaves with the moderately crisp air blowing against your plaid shirt. 

But with so many unique fall attractions within an accessible distance from Montreal, you could do so much more!

A great way to view some incredible scenery is the Mont Sutton annual fall festival! The event is taking place from September 15th to October 14th, every Saturday and Sunday. It's guaranteed to be the best way to take in autumn and all the beauty of this season.

Mont Sutton is located just 1 hour 25 minutes outside of Montreal, the perfect day trip!

The ideal romantic getaway for you and your lover, where you can ride the chairlift while taking cute Instagram photos. 

Bring your friends too and experience tons of activities! Go mountain biking or on a guided hike, savour delicious wine of the region, dance to the live outdoor concerts, view a photo exhibit, and enjoy delicious food! 

They also have a full itinerary for each weekend, with so many activities you won't know which ones to do first!
