People Love To Instagram These Places Around The 50 U.S. States And D.C.

Go forth and do it for the 'Gram.

What good is a road trip if you don't know the best places to post on Instagram to give all your friends FOMO? This handy map will help guide you to some of the most popular places in each state — and D.C. — that are shared on social media when people are doing it for the 'Gram.

Our map is a synthesis of a variety of sources and metrics from Instagram itself (via BuzzFeed), travel assistance website Busbud, national newspaper USA Today, and travel information website TravelBird.

It seems people really like taking photos at airports, universities, and sports stadiums or arenas, in addition to epic locales such as the Grand Canyon or Central Park. Both Disneyland and Walt Disney World make the cut as well with the Las Vegas Strip and, yes, the White House.
