Whenever I travel, I always plan ahead and try to find the most Instagram worthy spots to go. It isn’t just about the photos and how good they’ll look on my feed; I travel to see beautiful and unique places, and that’s pretty much what makes any place Instagram-worthy.
Today I’m sharing my tips on how to find the most Instagram-worthy spots in any city you go to. It can even be hard sometimes to find Instagram worthy places in your own city, and all of these same tips apply!
1. Search through that city’s hashtags and geolocation tags on Instagram.
This is pretty much the number one thing I do before exploring any new city. I planned pretty much my entire week-long Iceland trip just by finding all the cool spots on Instagram! Be sure to take advantage of Instagram’s “Collections” feature and save photos of places you want to visit. I do this for all the cities and countries I plan on visiting or revisiting, and separate them into different folders.
2. Look for Instagram accounts specific to that city.
There are tons of feature accounts or accounts that specifically only post about their own cities. I went to Vancouver for a few days earlier this year and planned on eating my heart out, so I searched for accounts that posted about the Vancouver food scene.
3. Find articles or blogs on the most Instagram worthy spots to go in that city.
Fun fact: I was actually one of the first people to ever write an article on Instagram-worthy places. It’s since become a popular article topic, and you can find tons all about different cities and different places. Just Google “Instagram-worthy spots in ____”!
4. Take a walk around and explore.
Walk around and actually take a look around at your surroundings. You might find hidden gems that haven’t yet been popularized, or you might even just find a random coloured wall that matches perfectly with your outfit that day.
How do you find the most Instagram-worthy spots to go when traveling? Or even in your own city? I’d love to hear your tips in the comments!
