Take your best Instagram pics of fall in Montreal
There’s no denying the Montreal is unbelievable gorgeous in the fall. Mont Royal becomes a sea of yellow, orange, and red, the temperature is perfect for jeans and a sweater, and cafes start serving pumpkin-infused drinks. If you’re still a little sad that summer is over, why not pump yourself up by venturing outdoors and taking a few fall-tastic Instagram photos. Go for a walk up Mont Royal or just head to your local Starbucks and enjoy a pumpkin spiced latte. You’ll quickly realize that fall in Montreal is pretty damn awesome.
