6 Of The Most Instagrammable Spots To Visit In Toronto
Whether you’re a local or just visiting, Toronto is a beautiful city to explore. Each corner is full of gems worthy of being snapped for the ‘gram!
With the weather warming up, we decided to hit the pavement and check out some of the picture perfect destinations the city has to offer with the new Huawei P30 Pro. Equipped with one of the largest batteries in the industry, we were able to make our way from one end of the city to the next without even having to recharge the phone. And when we did have to charge it, its SuperCharge function got it from zero to 70% in just 30 minutes.
But what makes the Huawei P30 Pro the most different from its predecessors is its new Leica Quad Camera System. Even the most novice of photographers can capture stunning shots. It features a 40MP main camera, a 20MP ultra-wide angle camera, an 8MP telephoto camera, a Time of Flight camera, and a 32MP camera, not to mention, 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom, and 50x digital zoom.
In Layman’s terms, that basically means the phone’s camera is dummy-proof! Say goodbye to grainy zoom, distracting backgrounds, indistinguishable night shots, and having to cut friends or interesting features out of photos because your lens isn’t wide enough — the Huawei P30 Pro has all of that covered!
Don’t believe us? Below you’ll find six Instagrammable Toronto spots, all shot on the Huawei P30 Pro.
And if you like what you see, you can pick up the Huawei P30 Pro at carriers like Bell, Rogers, TELUS, SaskTel, Videotron, Fido, Koodo, and Virgin Mobile.
St. Anne’s Church
Located on Gladstone Avenue in between College and Dundas is the National Historic Site and parish of the Anglican Church of Canada. From the outside, it might just look like a regular ol’ house of worship, however, the inside will amaze you. The building dates back to the early 1900s and features artwork by members of the famous Group of Seven painters.
Where to find it: St. Anne’s Church, 270 Gladstone Ave.
The “Kensington” Sign in Kensington Market
Sitting atop of a parking garage in Kensington Market is the famous “Kensington” sign. Getting to this sign isn’t always the easiest — the security guards don’t always let those walking on foot through. Your best bet for securing a picture of this Instagram-friendly sign would be to roll into the garage with a car and make your way up to the top of the parkade. Here you’ll get a dramatic skyline view that’s sure to blow you away.
Where to find it: Kensington Market Garage, 20 St. Andrew St.
Tucked away south of Queen St. West is a one kilometre stretch of back-alley that’s become the backdrop of many photos. For those who don’t know it, it might just look like another graffitied wall, but it’s so much more than that. The alley, which runs between Spadina and Portland, has been the locale of street festivals, music videos, and even has its own guided tours to showcase local artists’ work. Head here if you’re looking for a less-than-boring backdrop that’s sure to have the likes rolling in.
Where to find it: Just south of Queen St. West between Spadina Ave. and Portland St.
Downtown Toronto’s office complexes are hidden gems when it comes to Instagrammable locales. One place that’s particularly stunning to stroll through is Brookfield Place, or more specifically, Allen Lambert Galleria. Dubbed the “crystal cathedral of commerce,” the atrium was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. During the day, the sun beams through the tall glass ceilings, which stand at six storeys high.
Where to find it: Brookfield Place, 181 Bay St.
CF Toronto Eaton Centre Pedestrian Bridge
Designed by UK-based architecture firm WilkinsonEyre and Toronto-based firm Zeidler, the pedestrian bridge that reaches over the busy street of Queen St. West is a sight for sore eyes. Bridging together the Hudson’s Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue flagships with CF Eaton Centre, the skywalk twists and beautifully transitions into a historic Victorian facade. The glass panelling allows light to shine through gorgeously, and in the evenings, lighting strips illuminate the bridge, making it a picture perfect spot for photos at night when there’s less foot traffic.
Where to find it: CF Toronto Eaton Centre, 220 Yonge St.
The “Toronto” Sign at Nathan Phillips Square
Whether you’re a tourist or a local, a stop to Nathan Phillips Square, where city’s iconic “Toronto” sign resides, is a must. Throughout the year, colours of the sign change for special events like Pride, Canada Day, and more. Coupled with beautiful water fountains and the curved buildings that make up city hall, the “Toronto” sign is Instagram gold in the heart of the city.
Where to find it: Nathan Phillips Square, 100 Queen St. West
