Photography Things to Do Travel

Guide to Instagrammable Walls of Fort McMurray

Fort McMurrray Instagrammable Walls Photo Wall Travel Alberta

Over the weekend, Mike and I visited his sister and brother-in-law in Fort McMurray, Alberta. It was our first time visiting Fort McMurray and as such, I ensured our weekend itinerary included trying lots of local restaurants and mapping out Instagrammable Walls of Fort McMurray! 

If this is your first time reading about my love of Instagrammable Walls, let me explain. 

Finding Instagrammable Walls is one of my favourite things to do when I travel. Every city has them. Being ‘Instagrammable’ simply describes the wall’s aesthetic. These pretty, interesting coloured, textured, muralled, highly photogenic walls make a great backdrop for photos with yourself or your friends. They can be indoor or outdoor, but I’ve primarily focused on outdoor walls (they’re more accessible!)

I think Instagrammable Walls add to the beauty of a city, and can attract people to a location as a destination.

You’ve likely walked or driven by Instagrammable Walls but wouldn’t notice it’s ‘Instagrammable’ unless someone pointed it out. Or, maybe you note ‘that’s pretty’ but keep going.

If you’re from out of town, watching for and photographing Instagrammable Walls is a really great way to explore a new place, and in today’s social media world, it gives you some really great settings for vacation photos to share online! 

One of my favourite parts about identifying Instagrammable Walls of Fort McMurray, is how my sister and brother-in-law were surprised that these everyday buildings that they’ve driven by many times, were actually beautiful when you stopped to point them out and photograph them!

As I said, if I’m missing a wall, please let me know! There were a few more walls I did catch that could have been Instagrammable Wall-worthy, but sometimes it’s hard to convince people to drive out of their way to stop at a wall for a photo lol.

We also visited a pop-up wall students worked on at @itsallatthejube (swipe πŸ‘ˆπŸ» to see). They said the project was inspired by my Guide to #IGWallsofYYC blog post! πŸ™πŸ» When blogs/social media inspire action... πŸ’• It was really cool to see (you can see it too!

  • This week I tried a vegan restaurant AND the #SuperFoods menu at @milestonesrestaurants, so I’m feeling pretty healthy right now. πŸ˜‰ This is the fiery (and it was fiery πŸ”₯) Tunisian Chicken on quinoa and vegetables from #MilestonesRestaurant. They have a special Super Foods menu running until Feb. 25, that I was invited to try this weekend! It features tasty dishes specifically packed with things that are really good for your body, like antioxidants, fibre, omega-3s, protein, vitamins, probiotics and calcium (#FoodwithBenefits!) I also really enjoyed the Tempura Green Beans and Sweet Potato Fries from this same menu! πŸ˜‹ #sponsored
