PERFECT TIME FOR OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES
There’s no better time of year to enjoy outdoor activities on the east coast of Canada and the USA. With the cooler temperatures (think 70-75°F or 20-24°C), it is an ideal time to hike, bike, or paddle through the region’s stunning landscapes. Acadia National Park in Maine offers miles of scenic trails, while Niagara Falls is full of outdoor activities, from hiking paths and whirlpool cable cars, to fishing trips and cycle trails. In Canada, you can go looking for humpback and blue whales in the St Lawrence River. And all across the east coast, local farms open up for public apple picking, with tasty cider tastings and pumpkin browsing too.
