Adventure to Toronto's Most Instagrammable Spots
Taking a look at something beyond the many amazing food and drinks in Toronto (I guess if we haaaave to), there are many cool spots in the city you can venture off to for that fresh, interesting shot for the 'gram. Next time you've got some time to wander in the 6ix, venture over to some of these spots.
June Callwood Park AKA Pink Park
This park has a really interesting backstory to its purpose and design that is worth a look into. All interesting facts aside, this bubblegum gem is the perfect insta-worthy spot to add to your feed with minimal effort!
A beach isn't often what you would associate with Toronto, however you'll be surprised that you can access this spot right off the downtown core. The pink umbrellas and lounge chairs add another interesting piece to photograph.
If you're down for some exploration, Kensington Market is rife with photo ops from street art to the coolest shops. One of the top experiences in Toronto in our opinion!
CF Toronto Eaton Centre Pedestrian Bridge
This architecturally stunning bridge is the connection between Hudson's Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue at the Eaton Centre. It's extensive glass panelling allows for some beautiful natural lighting. An evening visit is also a great time for this spot as the crowds will be minimal.
Graffiti Alley runs south of Queen Street West from Spadina Ave to Portland Street. It's ever-changing, bold, and bright making it an easy pick for Toronto's most instagrammable spots.
The Thompson Rooftop
Everyone who visits Toronto is looking for those coveted views of The Six. The Thompson rooftop patio is a great choice: the image really speaks for itself here. If you need more incentive - the night life here is wild.
Another rooftop option to get in those views is Lavelle. The rooftop boasts an experience like no other including 360 degree views, pool, cabanas, bar, and amazing food. Tough sell...
Located in the Financial District, this unique location features a beautiful gold-coffered ceiling in the North Tower that is begging to be noticed and photographed!
Sanko Trading Co.
This is a great find: A Japanese grocery store carrying beautiful treasures and knick knacks housed in a bright and funky building. This is an awesome mini adventure in Toronto you should make some time for.
Get those tropical vibes going at Allan Gardens Park and Conservatory. This is one of the oldest parks in Toronto (over 100 years old), is open year round, and is free! Need I say more?
Osgoode Hall Library
Book lovers rejoice, for Toronto is home to this gorgeous library! This library is the largest law library in Canada and you can visit it right near Nathan Phillips Square on Queen Street. Beautiful woodworking, high ceilings and books on books on books.
One of Toronto's coolest attractions attained its spot on the to of Toronto's to-do list for a reason. Filled with colossal tanks of all sorts of underwater species, there is a photo op at every turn. From a walking tunnel where sharks can swim overhead, to a mesmerizing wall of floating, colorful jellyfish - we can verify this spot is insta-worthy!
Nathan Phillips Square
Hey, classics are classics for a reason am I right? Nathan Phillips Square is THE spot for the quintessential Toronto photo op. Located right in front of City Hall you will find the infamous Toronto sign to snap a photo with (come on, we know you want to!).
Art Gallery of Ontario
Art galleries are always a great choice when looking for your next photo op. The Art Gallery of Ontario is no different in this regard. The flow of temporary exhibits really lends itself to being a place you can visit over and over again and find something new to bless your feed with every time.
If you're looking for a more adventurous way to get those amazing city views, try taking a trip over to Toronto Island. The Island itself has something for everyone like bike rentals, kayak and canoe rentals, beaches, and is fun to check out even on foot. Once across the water, you have an unparalleled view of the city that looks amazing in any season.
The unique Toronto neighbourhood features cobblestone streets and Victorian era buildings that make a great backdrop to any photograph. Art galleries, shops, cafes, and restaurants make this a great area to explore and capture. This is also where the infamous Christmas Market takes place. An exceptional spot year round!
