There’s no denying, Toronto’s a beautiful city, full of wondrous, picture perfect spots. Vv Magazine’s Kate Dingwall rounds up the best places to snap a shot that are sure to up your likes. Do it for the ‘gram!
Right in the heart of City Place is the June Callwood park (also known as ‘the Pink Park’). This cotton-candy-hued space makes for almost otherworldly Instagrams.
This is Paradise Wall
Tom Dean’s mural on the side of the Cameron House was created after the artist was evicted from his home and moved into the Cameron House. Now, the baby blue and yellow mural takes up half a city block on a side street of Queen West.
From the pastel pink umbrellas to the warm sand to the chunks of Canadian shield, there are lots of photo opportunities. This beachy getaway is located right in the heart of the downtown core.
Evergreen Brick Works
Just a short bus ride away from Broadview station, the Evergreen Brickworks is a restored brickwork factory that has the same aesthetic appeal as a Brooklyn loft. Bonus: head down on a weekend morning and grab snack at the farmer’s market to fuel your ‘gramming
There are so many great places to snap a picture in Kensington Market. Whether it be in front of a graffiti plant-filled car, a colourful house, patterned steps on a patio or the famed Kensington sign (located on the top outdoor level of a Baldwin St. parking garage), you’re sure to get a good ‘gram (especially if you grab a churro cone while you’re there).
The alleyway between Portland and Spadina is home to some of the largest and most colourful graffiti in the city. Keep an eye out for Instagram meet-ups on Bunz, as there are bi-monthly Insta excursions to this very alley.
The Thompson Rooftop
If you haven’t run out of “Views” lyrics to use as captions, swing by the Thompson Hotel’s rooftop for a jaw-dropping view of the Toronto skyline.
Just West of the historical Bridle Path lies Edwards gardens, a floral oasis right in the North of the city. Swing by in spring to see the cherry blossoms bloom.
Closer to downtown, the Allan Gardens greenhouse is open to the public and is home to tropical flora and fauna (they even have a cacti garden).
The Art Gallery of Ontario
Thanks to Frank Gehry’s stunning architecture and ever-rotating exhibits or contemporary art, the Art Gallery of Ontario is always a safe bet for a solid snap.
The Aga Khan Museum
The Aga Khan is one of the newest addition to Toronto’s museum rotation. The museum is home to an astounding collection of Islamic art, all housed in a dramatic building by Moriyama and Teshima.
Alright, everyone and their mom have posted a photo of Ripley’s jellyfish, but the eerie blue and purple hues of the aquarium make for so many aesthetic options.
