The 5 Best Day Trips From Montreal
Presented by Destination Canada
Whether you go south towards the Eastern Townships or north towards the Laurentians, there's good, green fun to be had within an hour or two's drive of Montreal. From lakes and ski slopes, to fields of farm-fresh produce dotted with wineries, cheeseries, and maple syrup shacks—it's all there. And if it's an urban experience you're after, drive three hours westward to hit Québec City, or two hours in the opposite direction for Ottawa. Both are capitals for a reason, and wonderful spots from which to soak up unique and distinct aspects of Canada. Read on for our favorite Montreal day trips, and how to make the most of them.
