Instagram is a very serious matter to Torontonians. It's no longer a place for grainy, un-composed snapshots (however, if that's what your Instagram looks like, there's nothing to be ashamed of).

As you've probably seen in our The Best #Toronto Instagram Pictures lists, the people in this city take some pretty sick photos. Whether you use VSCO Cam, Afterlight or the standard Instagram filters, you've probably taken a cool shot or two of the CN Tower. We wanna help you step up your Insta game even further with these cool spots! A few of these have rad views of the skyline, but we'll let you explore and figure out which ones those are yourself.
