Top 10 Canada Instagram Locations

Niagara Falls Makes Canada’s Top 10 Locations on Instagram

Instagram recently revealed its list of the top places in Canada feature in Instagram photos for the year. It’s no surprise that destinations in Ontario hold more than half of the spots, and most definitely not a shock to see where the mighty Niagara Falls lands on this list. Take a look at the Top 10 Canadian Locations most photographed on Instagram below! Check out the full article here.

Niagara Falls is Canada’s Most Instagrammed Destination

1. Niagara Falls

Yes that’s right! Niagara Falls is one of the most photographed places in the WORLD, let alone in Canada! The city of Niagara Falls has been attracting tourists from all over for centuries and it is exciting to see the place our humble abode resides is the #1 Canadian destination featured on Instagram. Niagara Falls is not only known for the Horseshoe Falls itself, it is also a city with many other exciting attractions, nature sites and things to do surrounding the natural wonder. The name of our hotel, The Oakes Hotel Overlooking the Falls was by no accident, as it is the hotel with the most spectacular view of the Niagara Falls- making it the perfect destination to snap photos and enjoy luxurious, boutique style accommodations. Be sure to post your hotel view photo of the Falls during your next visit with us!

You can also get great action shots from attractions such as the HornBlower Cruises, Journey Behind the Falls, or hop on the Incline Railway located in front of The Oakes Hotel and take a ride down to the brink of Falls.

2. Rogers Centre/ Blue Jays Game

With the Blue Jays always on the playoff hunt and giving the only Canadian team #OurMoment, it is great to see the fans taking to Instagram. Whether it’s Jose and Edwin’s bombing home runs, the shot of some ice cold beers behind home plate, or Instagrammers sporting their Jays Gear at the game, it certainly boosted the Rogers Centre status this year.

3. Air Canada Centre

Well, if the Blue Jays Games make this list, of course the venue hosting the Raptors and Maple Leafs is to be spotted on here! Toronto’s large population base and sporting teams give the Air Canada Centre (ACC) a huge lead on other sporting venues featured on Instagram. Not only do they have sports teams’, they also have sell-out concerts from fan favourites such as Drake and The Tragically Hip. Of course, you’ll find plenty of other artists at the ACC, however this list is all about Canada!

4. Toronto Pearson International Airport

More than 40 million people trek through the Pearson Airport every year. Boarding pass photos, good-bye and arrival photos, waiting for your flight photos or plane take off photos…. we’re not sure what photo is most popular, however we do know, The Toronto Pearson International Airport makes for a nice Instagram photo, as it takes the 4th spot on the list.

5. Canada’s Wonderland

There is no shortage of good photos to be taken at Canada’s Wonderland. A place for laughs, screams and spinning around and upside down on the rollercoasters. If you still have your phone in hand at the end of the ride, it is definitely Instagram worthy!

6. Old Port of Montreal

Authorities have done a great job of fixing up Montreal’s waterfront. There are zip lines and children’s playgrounds and lovely walkways along the St. Lawrence River. They’ll be doing a massive light display on the Jacques Cartier Bridge next year as part of Montreal’s 375th birthday. We are certain there will be a few Instagram photos of that!

7. CN Tower, Toronto

A shot from the Toronto Islands is the classic CN Tower Instagram shot. Better yet, it is always a better photo while hanging off the building right? The EdgeWalk, is an attraction where folks are strapped into a harness with weighty cables and then deliberately lean out over the edge from more than 356 metres (1,168 feet) in the air. Hold onto your phones, and your lunch!

8. Vancouver International Airport

YVR has a lovely design that definitely reflects a sense of place; with native/aboriginal art work and tons of mossy greens and blues. There’s even a giant aquarium. The totem poles and wood carvings make great Instagram shots.

9. Molson Ampitheatre, Toronto

The acts aren’t always as high-profile as at the Air Canada Centre, but the Molson Amphitheatre still makes the Top 10 list for being most photographed. A night on the lawn or under the awning at this outdoor spot on Lake Ontario is a lovely place to be on a summer’s night.

10. Whistler Blackcomb, B.C.

Closing out the list is at #10 is Whistler, Blackcomb in British Columbia. The Peak to Peak Gondola runs between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains and takes you across a deep valley that’s great for photos. Also highly photographed on Instagram is the Olympic rings at the top of the mountain and the ones in Whistler Village. Whether is the resort, the mountains, the snow, or the rings- Whistler is a cool spot to captured an Instagram.
