The best Instagram locations in the USA!

Go on, admit it. You love Instagram! So do I – it’s a fun way to share travel photos and get inspiration about new places to visit. In fact, it’s an integral part of The Global Couple – we post over there far more than we post on here!

Recently, Netflights sent us their blog post aboutΒ Instagram locations in the USA and asked us to share our favourite Instagram locations in the USA too. We jumped at the chance! The US has such a varied range of landscapes, cities, and people – so there are endless Instagram photo opportunities. We hope you like our favourites – and comment at the end with yours, we would love to know!

Also check out our other blog posts about the USA for planning your next trip.

The Global Couple’s favourite Instagram locations in the USA

Portland, Maine

Portland, ME is a photographer’s dream – the cobbled streets, old brick buildings, fishing village vibe, Portland has it all. The food scene is also fantastic so there are plenty of #instafood shots to capture too.

We loved the cobbled back streets in Portland, Maine – what's your favourite old city?

Multnomah Falls, Oregon

The US has no shortage of amazing waterfalls, but one of our favourites is Multnomah Falls, near Portland, Oregon. This is a beautiful spot, particularly in the fall when the leaves are turning. The whole Columbia River Gorge drive is spectacular and definitely worth the detour if you’re in Portland!

New York City from the air

The Big Apple is probably the most Instagrammed city in the world, am I right? I swear every third photo on my feed is NYC sometimes. It’s a popular Insta location for a reason – it’s a fantastic place to visit – but try and get a different angle on the city. We adored our helicopter flight over Manhattan, it was a blast and the resulting photos were pretty damn awesome.

Flashback! Can't believe it was two years ago that we were in our favourite city, New York. Oh how we long to return! #NYC

Hawaiian coastline

Hawaii has a dramatic coastline – the angry turquoise waves, the lush jungle, the craggy peaks. There are many great Instagram spots, but one particular good one (and easily accessible from Honolulu) is Makapu’u Lookout on the eastern tip of O’ahu.

Grand Canyon, Arizona, in the SNOW

Most people visit Grand Canyon in the summer, and fair enough – it’s the easiest time of year to get there. But the best time of the year to visit is in winter when there is snow on the ground. It’s absolutely magical. Yes, it’s freezing, but there are hardly any people around and it’s drop dead beautiful.

Throwback to the time we went to Grand Canyon in the snow ❄️ and it was absolutely magical 😊

  1. Whoa – the pictures are definitely amazing! I do love your picture of the Grand Canyon, though. I’m assuming that this is the same Grand Canyon in Arizona, and I never knew that the place would snow too.

    Based on what I’ve seen online, Niagara Falls seems to be a good Instagram place too! πŸ™‚
