NOTE: an UPDATED Guide to Instagrammable Walls of Medicine Hat has been created (as of July 2020).
I just wanted to keep this 2017 post for posterity.
Please check out the 2020 UPDATED Guide for updated walls/murals!!
On my mission to map out Instagrammable Walls of cities, I found myself in Medicine Hat! Well, that’s not entirely true. Mike and I drove down to Medicine Hat last weekend to celebrate our close friend Jack’s birthday. While there, we took the opportunity to scout out some Instagrammable Walls. We were able to scout super efficiently thanks to our dear friend Nicole (Jack’s wife), who did some preliminary wall scouting for us before we arrived! ;)
I think Instagrammable Walls add to the beauty of a city, and can attract people to a location as a destination.
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!)
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!
Now I’m happy to add a Guide to Medicine Hat’s Most Instagrammable Walls!
If I’m missing a wall, please let me know! Be sure to email, tweet @lindork, message me on Instagram @lindork, or share Medicine Hat wall locations/photos on Instagram using #IGWallsofMedHat to get them added to the list!
