Everyone loves to travel. Experiencing new cultures, foods, and places is always so exhilarating! Part of the fun is snapping an opportune pic or two on your hiatus to show off to your pals when you get back home.
Some places are more photogenic than others. I mean, have you ever been to or seen pictures of Omaha? Probably not. People generally don’t waste the film it would cost to document such a featureless place (Sorry Omaha residents, but you know it’s true). We scoured the USA for the top 10 most photogenic places, so that you can take the perfect photo, post it to your Insta, and score tons of likes.
Yosemite National Park, CA: When you first drive into this (objectively the best) national park from Highway 41, you’ll pass through a long tunnel and emerge with one of the most amazing views in the entire world.
Golden Gate Bridge
San Francisco, CA: The Golden Gate Bridge is a marvel of modern engineering, and it’s a national landmark. There’s a reason why--it’s frickin’ amazing. It’s also extremely photogenic.
Las Vegas, NV: First time visitors to Las Vegas always want to go to stand in front of the Bellagio to watch the fountains. They’re awesome. While you’re on the sidewalk, you’ll have to dodge a million other tourists taking photos of the fountain, which is why this famous spot makes the list.
Arches National Park, UT: Arches National Park is a desert wonderland filled with rock arches carved out of brilliantly colored sandstone. They took millions of years to form from wind erosion. Delicate arch is the most famous of all.
Seattle, WA: Downtown Seattle is beautiful, and the Space Needle is the most famous landmark in the city. Whether from the top or from the bay, pictures of the Needle are a must-get for any Northwestern traveler.
Chattanooga, TN: Located right on the border of Tennessee and Georgia, Rock City sits perched on the top of Lookout Mountain. According to placards, you can see 7 states from this beautiful overlook.
New York, NY: Every tourist who visits New York for the first time goes to Times Square. It’s a bustling meeting place of cars, people, restaurants, and the naked cowboy. It’s also a hit for taking pictures.
Orlando, FL: When a football player wins the Super Bowl, they always talk about going to Disney World for some reason. Well, the famous castle is also one of the most photographed buildings in the entire country.
Crater Lake, OR: One of the most photographed national parks in the US is also its deepest natural lake. This dormant volcano blew its lid millions of years ago, and now a crystal blue lake filled in the cracks. Include Wizard Island in the pic!
Plymouth, MA: You’ve probably seen pictures of Plymouth Rock, but you didn’t know it, because it’s so hilariously disappointing to see in real life. That doesn’t mean it isn’t one of the most photographed places in the USA. I recommend everyone to experience the underwhelming reality of seeing Plymouth Rock in person.
