Both Adam and I have recently been getting more into photography, so we decided give Toronto urban exploring a try.
Fairmont Royal York Hotel
We started off our adventure at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.
We were hesitant because we thought we would get kicked out as soon as we walked in, but no one even blinked an eye.
It was really nice inside the hotel, but we didn’t get any good photos.
We moved onto the Financial District and got a few cool shots.
The courtyard by the TD Centre is one of my favourite spots in the city.
It’s a quiet little area of greenery in the heart of a concrete jungle.
The metal cows add a nice touch as well.
It’s a cool spot to visit during the day or at nighttime!
LOCATION: 100 Wellington St. West
First Canadian Place
We came across the First Canadian Place building (which has really nice marble walls if you’re looking for somewhere to take #OOTDs).
Luckily there was someone in the elevator with us because we couldn’t get anywhere without a key pass.
The man asked us where we were going and we told him we were just taking photos.
He was nice enough to show us around his office and give us a tour of the different views it had.
He led us to a room with a view of the rooftop hockey rink.
LOCATION: 100 King St. West
We knew we’d get decent photos at Brookfield no matter what so we went there.
It definitely looked prettier during the holidays with all of the lights, but it was still cool.
LOCATION: 181 Bay St.
And thus ended our brief urban exploring trip because I had an assignment due the next day and Adam wanted to go to the gym.
We’ll probably try again when the weather gets warmer.
Have you gone urban exploring in Toronto? What are some of your favourite areas to explore in the city? I’d love to know in the comments!
