Here’s just how Instagram-worthy Vancouver was in 2017


Instagram has pretty much become a way of life, and in picturesque British Columbia we certainly have our share of amazing sights to capture. But just how Instagrammable are we?

The photo-sharing app has released some data for 2017 about the Canadian market, and Vancouver can not only boast being one of the top most Instagrammed cities in the country, but also some of the most Instagram-worthy places, too.

Vancouver comes in at a respectable third on the list of top most Instagrammed cities in Canada, and the #vancouver hashtag the tenth most used this year nationwide.

Top locations to snap, filter, and post in B.C. include the stunning beauty of Stanley Park (#2), our water-side hangs like English Bay (#4) and Kitsilano Beach (#6) and of course the very photogenic Gastown (#7).

Canada-wide, Vancouver International Airport was the tenth-most Instagrammed location. Who doesn’t love a good airport selfie?
