Most Instagrammed Tourist Attractions

Study reveals the most Instagrammed locations in the USA and around the world

  • Disneyland is the most hashtagged spot in the USA, with nearly 3 times the number of mentions than Walt Disney World, the 2nd most popular

  • South Beach, Miami is the 3rd most popular destination in the USA for Instagram users, followed by the Las Vegas Strip, Times Square and Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

  • Globally, The Eiffel Tower, the Berlin Wall and Big Ben are among the top ten most hashtagged tourist destinations in the world

London, United Kingdom – Online travel specialists, TravelBird, have released the Most Instagrammed Tourist Attractions, a study ranking 470 attractions in many countries around the world based on the number of tags on the social media platform. With the image-based application most popular among Millennial users, TravelBird sought to use the information to gain an understanding of how global travel destinations measure up on social media.

The results provide an indepth view of the best travel spots in the United States of America, with two attractions researched in every state. The inclusion of every state ensures lesser known, local gems are represented, as well as popular attractions within the more densely populated states. The same process was repeated in 10 other countries. From these in-depth looks into each country, a master ranking was created, which compares over 400 of the world’s most popular tourist destinations on their Instagram presence.

“This study offers a compelling overview of hundreds of destinations that are beloved by Instagram users for their cultural heritage, their stunning natural beauty and their local charm,” states Symen Jansma, Founder of TravelBird. “Alongside this, the data also tells a fascinating story about the ways people are travelling in 2017, offering valuable insights for the travel and tourism industry.”
