You Must Visit Montreal in Fall
Fall (or autumn!) is my favorite season. I love Halloween and Thanksgiving. I love red, orange, yellow, and brown leaves. I love the crisp cool air. I love the dramatic twilight skies. I love sweaters and scarves and boots. And yes, I love pumpkin. Alllllll things pumpkin. I just bought lots of pumpkin-flavored yogurt for lunch this week. Don’t judge me, please. I loved pumpkin waaaaaaay before it was “cool” and “basic” for everyone else. I’m not giving up my pumpkin flavors.
Now if only New Jersey’s weather would drop below 80 degrees. I want that cool air, damn it.
But we’re not here for a rant about New Jersey’s sluggish and lingering heat. We’re here for amazing photos of Montreal! Right? Right!
I visited Montreal in fall, last November actually, and I really think it’s an ideal time to visit the city. Spending 4 days in Montreal was the right amount of time too. I didn’t feel too rushed moving between sites, and I felt like I had ample time to appreciate Montreal’s richness. It was perfect.
Moving on. Why did I pick this time of year to visit?
So many great reasons! For example, there are fewer crowds, the weather isn’t ungodly cold yet, and the foliage is to die for. My hike to the top of Mt. Royal provided me with some perfect fall images to last a lifetime. Trust me, my camera was very happy. There are so many things to do in Montreal that you’ll be more than satisfied.
Oh, and let’s not forget about hockey season! It’s in full swing. (For more on my trip, check out how I broken my travel budget in Montreal).
So, obviously, I hope these photos inspire you to visit Montreal in fall. It’s truly a beautiful time to visit this vibrant city. I was blessed with wonderful weather. Plus, as I’ve already said, if you’ve limited travel time, Montreal makes a great long weekend trip that’s not too rough on the wallet. It’s really a marvelous city.
Are we ready for some photos? Onward, onward, onward!
