But first, let me take a selfie. Whether you're looking for a new profile picture or simply want to improve your photography, we've got you covered. These secret places are actually the perfect spots to take photos in Vancouver.

If you've got plans to check out Vancouver this summer, there's more to see than just The Digital Orca. 

Instead of spending hours scouring the internet to find all of the best hidden murals and photo-spots, you can check-out this list below instead.

Finding all of those cool backdrops for Instagram and TikTok can be a lot of work, but it's often worth it for the extraordinary videos and photos.

Even if you're a local, you can treat yourself to a staycation. It can be so much fun to ditch your regular routine, and explore your own city like a tourist.

You may have intended to visit some of these locations for a long time, or perhaps you didn't even realize they existed.

The only question is, where will you go first? Will you swing high above a gorgeous, golden beach, or discover a garden with thousands of roses?

To make your life easier, be sure to add all of these spots to Google Maps.
