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 Most Instagrammed Destinations in The USA
Disneyland, California and Walt Disney World, Florida were the most hashtagged tourist destinations on Instagram. The thriving party scene of Las Vegas Strip and Mardi Gras placed in the top six, whilst sun seekers made South Beach, Waikiki and Myrtle Beach rank high. Lovers of the great outdoors won’t be surprised to see that The Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park and The Rocky Mountains made the top 15 most Instagrammed destinations in the USA.
The Most Instagrammed Global Destinations
The universally recognised Disneyland, California tops the global list, followed by Paris’ Eiffel Tower. Globally, Big Ben, London ranked 7th, just ahead of Times Square, New York in 8th position.
“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.”
