Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting Saskatoon for the very first time (I had been joking that I was popping my Saskatoon Berry lol) as part of a Tourism Saskatoon-hosted trip. The primary purpose of the visit was to explore Saskatoon’s culinary scene (which is totally great, by the way—more on that in a later blog post!) but I obviously tried to squeeze in some Instagrammable Wall exploration as well.
If this is your first time reading about my love of Instagrammable Walls, let me explain.
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!
Since 2017, I’ve hosted Edmonton Instagrammable Walls Photo Walks, and have mapped out Guides to Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton, Calgary, Medicine Hat, and Fort McMurray!
Now I’m happy to add a Guide to Saskatoon’s Most Instagrammable Walls!
I know I’m missing walls, so please let me know! This was a whirlwind trip and it wasn’t focused on the walls so I didn’t have as much time to just scope out. Be sure to email, tweet @lindork, message me on Instagram @lindork, or share Saskatoon wall locations/photos on Instagram using #IGWallsofYXE to get them added to the list!
