We all use Instagram for a variety of reasons (showcase our food, cat(s), selfies etc.). It’s basically a visual diary that reflects our aesthetic and gives us a chance to connect with people that actually give a sh!t about what we post.

And if you were wanting to improve your feed and give off the illusion of being super cool (or perhaps--unlike with me, it’s an accurate portrayal in your case), there’s a tonne of cool spots in YEG that will add some some flair to your photos.

Here’s a few of the many super photogenic/unique locations in Edmonton that will help you step up your IG game. #YEG #Instafamous

Alberta Legislature Building

This is an architecturally beautiful building, situated on gorgeous well-kept grounds. So, it’s easy to snap a great photo in this area. You even have the symmetrical row of fountains in front of the building. It’s all so perfect.

Old Strathcona Farmer's Market Building.

The brick wall of this market has proven to be a popular backdrop for a lot of Edmonontian Ingstagrammers. Another popular spot is the murals or street art on and/or near the building.

...Or inside the Old Strathcona Farmer's Market Building

Whereas the building itself has always been an IG favourite, this year proved that the market inside made for some lovely photos. Bright photos of produce seem to be a growing trend on Instagram these days.

The End of The World

Despite the morbid name, this is a super photogenic area! Just be extremely cautious when taking photos, because there's a huge drop-off.
