Ever creeped someone's Instagram and thought, "Gee, I wish my Insta was this fire"? Be the change you want to see and start taking those ? shots yourself. You don't need to have a fancy camera to take all those nice photos.
Step up your Insta game this summer and make the most of the warm weather. Whether you're taking scenic shots or OOTDs, here are some Toronto spots you should go and take photos at this summer.
1. Graffiti Alley
Hit up Graffiti Alley for artsy background galore. Just try to avoid the touristy selfie shots.
2. Toronto Islands
The perfect place to get a gorgeous skyline view. With a little nature peeking in, it's the perfect summer aesthetic.
The aesthetic of Dundas and Spadina is just so different from the rest of the downtown core. You could take those infamous silhouette shots in front of all the neon storefront signs here.

4. HTO Park
The yellow umbrellas are so vintage. Add a vintage filter over it and you've got yourself a sweet Insta.
5. Blue Jays Game @ Rogers Centre
Whether or not you're an actual Jays fan, an Insta at a game will make you the ultimate Torontonian (but not really).
6. Casa Loma
With all the pretty flowers, Casa Loma actually looks like it came right out of a fairytale.
7. Sugar Beach
This will look so cute on your Instagram.
8. Church-Wellesley Village
The Village is full of beautiful sights and colours.

9. Thompson Hotel Rooftop Lounge
An Insta at the Thompson rooftop pool will make you look elite AF and will look hella cool on your feed.

Everyone has a photo of the Toronto sign on their feed. Come up with a new way to display the Toronto sign and wow all your followers.
11. Allan Gardens
A little nature-y getaway in the heart of the city.
Sunsets over the water make for uh-mazing shots.
