The Most Instagrammable Places In Calgary with Style by Aliya

Calgary is a beautiful city to begin with, but there are a few places where its beauty really shines. This means that they make the picture perfect backdrop to your next Instagram post!

From the infamous Peace Bridge to the Wonderland sculpture, we sat down with Aliya of Style By Aliya, a designated professional accountant turned fashion and lifestyle blogger, to get her input when it comes to the best places to take Instagram photos in Calgary.

Let’s jump in!

Teatro Calgary

“Teatro is one of the oldest buildings, a circa-1911 bank building, in downtown Calgary. With its beautiful exterior and equally elegant interior, it is one of Calgary’s finest restaurants and best spots to take a photo.”

Saskatoon Farm

“A short drive away from Calgary in the Foothills, this farm is so picturesque with its blooming greenhouses. Think Western and this is the place for you!”

East Village

“From the new Calgary Public Library to the Simmons Building and all the surrounding streets, this area has every imaginable type of architecture and colour scheme to match your feed.”

Murals in Downtown Calgary

“There are so many of these bright colourful instagrammable murals in the downtown core. Some include the geometric wall on the side of Samuel’s Camera Store, Abstract Art on 17 th Avenue, Bugs Buzz near the Community Natural Foods and the Corridor of Connection in East Village.”

Wonderland or the Giant Head

“Wonderland or the Giant Head is one of the most photographed contemporary landmarks in Calgary. Any time of day, there will be someone taking photos– be sure to go during sunset as the lighting can be quite harsh otherwise.”

Stephen Avenue

“Day or night, you will find amateur to professional photographers walking around with their cameras in hand. Stephen Avenue is one of the busiest and liveliest streets in Calgary and great for street photography. You might even catch me here at around 4pm taking photos of my own!”

Devonian Gardens

“Located in The Core, this indoor park and botanical garden has the best lighting and will keep your fingers and toes warm during those cold Calgary Winters.”

Shopping @marshallscanada is always fun as I never know what surprising Marshalls finds will come home with me. This time it was my entire outfit for under $100, which is amazing! Marshalls has a great ladies fashion department including footwear and accessories. They also carry the latest trends in store like this striped pair of jeans for $39.99 which have been on my wish list for a while. To match the jeans, I found this cute tee for $9.99 which is so parisienne and the perfect spring tweed blazer for $49.99.  I can already think of a few different ways to incorporate these pieces into my wardrobe. If you like my handbag, it's also a #LoveMarshalls find and was a steal of a deal! Be sure to follow and tag @marshallscanada and #LoveMarshalls for a chance to be featured on their page. Would love to see your stylish and surprising finds! #ad . . . . . #chooselovely #finditliveit #makeyousmilestyle #calgaryism #calgaryblogger #curiocitycalgary #nycblogger #westcoastblogger #whowhatwearing #stylebook #styledaily #shopstyleit #myunicornlife #torontoblogger #girlscreating #igerstoronto #ootdgals #toronto_insta #torontoclicks #prettylittleiiinspo #cybercorner #fashioncanadians #canadianfashion #outfitinspo #outfitidea #streetstyle #thursdayvibes #stylebyaliyafashion

Peace Bridge

“It truly is one of the most beautiful bridges in the city and maybe even the country. With its modern design and red colour, it makes for amazing pictures year-round!”

Alforno Bakery & Café

“As I once read on IG, you can’t be a blogger in Calgary and not take a picture outside of this iconic cafe. Early morning or late afternoon/evening are highly recommended to avoid the crowds.”
