7 of the best instagram spots in LA

If you're anything like me, you'll agree that one of the best parts of travelling is the hundreds of opportunities you'll come across to capture Instagram worthy travel photos. You'll come home with a camera roll full of shots that'll have your friends ridden with travel envy. This was the case with my recent trip to Los Angeles, California.

If your'e planning a trip to LA LA land, here are some of the most photogenic spots around the city - and some of my fave things to add to your itinerary...

LACMA URBAN LIGHTS

Outside of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art you’ll find dozens of people and cameras capturing Instagram shots among the lamp post art installation, which has become one of LA’s great landmarks. Urban Light is made up of 202 old lamp posts from the 1920s and 30s, collected from around Los Angeles.

HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME

Be warned, it’s not all as glamorous as television makes it out to look, definitely not somewhere you’d picture the Oscars to be held. But nonetheless it’s still an LA must see and an opportunity for a touristy photo with your favourite celebrity stars embedded down Hollywood Boulevard.

More like the walk of shame, Hollywood is deceiving 🌴🌟

GRIFFITH OBSERVATORY

In the hills looking down over the whole of LA, you’ll find the best views of the city at the observatory. Go before sunset to watch the glistening city lights below, and make sure you explore the planetarium and telescopes. My afternoon spent at the observatory was my favourite memory from my time in LA.

Nothing beats a Californian sunset 💫

BEVERLY HILLS

Throughout the glamorous 90210 you’ll find street after street of beautiful palm trees towering the skyline, and a number of other photo opportunities at the Beverly Hills sign, aesthetic cafes and the Beverly Hills Hotel. Go window shopping down Rodeo Drive and daydream of the designer wardrobe my bank balance won’t ever allow.

Pack your walking shoes and set out for a hike behind the Hollywood sign for another breathtaking view of the city, you might even run into a celebrity enjoying a hike. The best view of the sign can be accessed from 3000 Canyon Lake Drive.
