The Most Instagrammed Tourist Attraction in the Americas Is in the South
Can you guess what it is?
As you scroll through your instagram feed, you may see some recurring themes: barbecue, the beach, the lake, flowers, porches, and the list goes on.
But in addition to these Southern instagram staples, there are more than a few popular vacation destinations we're used to seeing pop up. So out of all the tourist attractions in the Americas, what reigns supreme on instagram? Travel site Globehunters recently released a top 50 list of the most instagrammed tourist attractions in the Americas, and a Southern favorite came in first: Disney World.
With 8,346,264 tagged posts (at the time of their survey) Disney World beat out Central Park and the Las Vegas Strip which came in second and third place, respectively. Epcot came in sixth with 2,693,825 tagged photos. Beyond the top 10, a few more iconic Southern spots made the cut. New Orleans' French Quarter (#21, 743,768 tagged photos) the United States Capitol (#23; 681,187), The Everglades (#24; 517,133); Washington Monument (#31; 428,597), Lincoln Memorial (#39; 323,526), and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (#45; 233,335)
