Well, we got a little taste of summer the past few days and boy did it feel good.
Of course, it also looked good too.
Which got us thinking about the best Toronto Instagram locations in the city. You know, where you can take in some of the city’s most scenic spots while also snapping a few envy-inducing pics.
So we’ve rounded up everything from scenic parks and beaches to local street art for you to discover. Just remember, pics or it didn’t happen…
There’s more to High Park than the cherry blossom trees. The hiking trails, lakes, streams, manicured gardens and lush greenery are definitely a must see, not to mention they make the perfect Instagram photo backdrop.

Give your feed a dose of Toronto pride by snapping a pic in front of the city’s bustling Nathan Phillips Square.

This sweet spot is known for its white Muskoka chairs, pink umbrellas, and amazing skyline views. Definitely worthy of an Instagram selfie.

Douglas Coupland’s “Red Canoe” at Canoe Landing Park is one of our favourite spots to snap an Insta pic. What could be more Canadian than an incredible view of the CN tower from the comfort of a big red canoe?
You’ll feel worlds away from the city at this century-old greenhouse. With hundreds of tropical plants from around the world, you’ll always manage to find the perfect backdrop for an Insta pic.

There are few things more memorable than watching the sun set over the city skyline at Polson Pier. Make the experience even more memorable by enjoying a bottle (or two) of wine. We won’t judge (or tell).

While the Toronto Island is usually the go-to spot to take in Toronto’s incredible skyline, we’re quickly learning that some of the best views can only be seen by boat.

Tucked behind Toronto’s bustling Queen Street West, you’ll find some of the city’s best graffiti art. Every nook of this strip houses unique and colourful designs that are definitely worthy of an Instagram post.
Liven up your Insta feed with a pic taken in the city’s artsy neighbourhood Kensington Market neighbourhood. Here you’ll find eclectic shops filled with vintage clothes, handmade goods, and fresh fruits and veggies, countless restaurants, and plenty of photo opportunities.

During summer in Toronto, day-drinking and Trinity Bellwoods Park go together like footlong hotdogs and Blue Jays games. Make sure to spend at least one sunny afternoon in this park before summer ends.

Whether you’re a die-hard Jays fan or a supportive bandwagoner, you can be sure to snap an Insta worthy pic or two at a game no matter where you’re sitting.

No Toronto summer could be complete without a visit to the island and a shot of the stunning skyline taken from the beach. Though you’re going to have to wait a while before you can head over…

It’s hard to believe you can find so many incredible beaches so close to the city. If the inviting turquoise water and soft sandy beach wasn’t enough to get you to Woodbine Beach, rumour has it you can find a number of Pokémon here too…
