Mar 10 2021, 4:30 pm

Please note: As recommended by BC’s provincial health officials, gatherings of any kind and unessential travel in the province is not recommended at this time. Please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing and frequent hand washing, and wearing a mask or face-covering in public indoor and retail spaces. If you are sick, please stay home.


The grass always seems greener on the other side, but let’s not forget to enjoy the spring beauty we have right here in our backyard in Vancouver.

The sun is coming out, and the days are getting longer, which means one thing — more opportunities to get the perfect pics for the ‘gram.

If you’re looking for a way to up your Insta game right here at home in the Vancouver area, you might want to check out these spots for some inspiration.

Here are nine of the best places to take spring photos in and around the city:

The sun is starting to peak through the clouds, and as seen here — the trees, too. Lynn Canyon is a hidden gem, and standing amongst the trees as the sunlight barely peaks through can provide for a stunning photo-op.
