The Apartment: 718 Gerrard St. E

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that one of my favourite activities is running around Toronto taking photos for my feed. As much as I love finding a new café, or experiencing a new spot for brunch, the whole process can start to get expensive. A coffee here and there can really add up, and sometimes I just want to take a quick photo of my outfit without having to spend any money. I have a list of my go-to FREE Instagrammable spots in Toronto; locations that are consistently Instagram-worthy, and cost nothing to photograph.  Here are some of my go-to free spots in Toronto for when I want to shoot a quick photo on Instagram.

The Pink Door Beside Café CanCan

While Café CanCan is its own pink paradise, it can be quite a costly spot for brunch. I prefer the adorable pink door that's right beside it, for when you want a cute shot for the 'gram - it's free, and you don't have to put up with the atrocious service that the restaurant is known for.

Sugar Beach

Sugar Beach is one of my favourite free spots in Toronto that is 100% pure Instagram goals. The pink umbrellas, white chairs and light sand make the most beautiful backdrop to any photo. The location can get extremely busy in the summer, so it's always best to visit during the week if you can.

Exhibition Place

The architecture at Exhibition Place will have you forgetting that you're in Toronto and thinking that you're in Europe.

*Note: I've heard stories of security guards preventing people from taking photos at this location. While I've never had any troubles myself, it's worth mentioning to keep your eyes open.

Sweet Philosophy

Can you tell that I have a think with pink doors? I always make a point to snap a quick picture in front of Sweet Philosophy's beautiful pink door whenever I'm in Mississauga.

King Street East

With Toronto's new pilot project limiting cars on King Street, it makes it so easy to snap a quick street style photo! I just love the architecture on King street between Jarvis and Yonge, and it's even easier to capture the beauty of it without the distraction of cars.

The Columns at The Esplanade 

There's a walkway on The Esplanade in Toronto thats lined with beautiful columns, and is the perfect spot for taking a photo for Instagram. This area is also covered, so it's my go-to spot for shooting photos in the rain.

That's it! My list of tried and true, FREE spots to shoot your Instagram photos in Toronto. I would love to know if you also have some go-to locations that don't cost a cent for taking photos? Let me know!
