An Instagrammer's Guide To Vancouver During The Holidays

No filters necessary.

If anyone were to ask me what my favourite season in Vancouver is, I'd probably have to say it'd be a very close tie between summer and winter. The summer is awesome because well... it's summer. Who doesn't love the summertime?

But there just seems to be something special in the air when winter rolls around - something magical and enchanting. From the bright and shining Christmas light displays to the festive events, the massive holiday ferris wheels to the German-style Christmas markets, the city never seizes to impress and wow us throughout the holiday season.

If you love posting on Instagram or you simply have a hobby in taking pictures, Christmas in Vancouver is where it's at. Whether you're a local or just visiting, there are plenty of beautiful places for photo ops in the city. And where are they all? We've got them listed right here.

So get ready to bust out your phone or your bad ass DLSR and get to shooting. Here are all the most beautiful and festive places to take a snapshot during the holidays in Vancouver.
