Guide-to-Instagrammable-Walls-of-Fort-McMurray

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.
