The Most Popular Instagram Spots

 

Many people planning a vacation consult guidebooks or travel websites, but did you know you can also filter locations on Instagram? PlayPicks, a sports betting news site, has developed a tool that reveals the top 20 hashtagged places on Instagram as well as preferred places by category, be it aquarium or festival, national park or beach.

 

A disproportionate number of these destinations are in California, including Long Beach, Venice Beach, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara beaches. Right now, local stunner the Golden Gate Bridge sits at number 15, with 2,253,270 hashtagged posts.
