37 Most Instagrammable Places in Los Angeles

37 Most Instagrammable Places in Los Angeles

How do you plan your travels? Lately, I’ve been using instagram since I like visually seeing my options. We decided to begin a new series on instagram spots starting with the most instagrammable places in Los Angeles.

There is so much to eat, see, and do in LA, but there are some specific spots that instagrammers flock to.

Some of the more touristy and obvious ones are the Hollywood SignHollywood Walk of FameHollywood Bowl, and The Getty Center, just to name a few.

It makes perfect sense that they’d also be popular on instagram. But this is a list of instagram spots in LA that even local igers can’t resist.

37 Most Instagrammable Places in Los Angeles

Murals are constantly changing, so we tried to mostly include timeless spots or areas where they will always have an interesting mural even if they turnover.

This is one of the most instagrammable places in Los Angeles. IGers make it a point to find these stairs even if it’s a quick visit and they don’t make it the rest of these spots.

Local Tip: The artist is Corinne Carrey the stairs are right across the street from Alfred Coffee and the Micheltorena Elementary School.

Note: This one is dated. It’s still there but some of the paint has faded and looks more run down with a fence all around it. Not as photogenic as it used to be.

Every so often they will repaint it. My friend got to see it painted rainbow colors for pride month.

Photo Tip: We took these photos a few years ago with no problems, but now there’s a security guard there that will only allow phone photos and not DSLR.

29. Bloom Mural by Hueman

Coordinates: 34.045741, -118.237180, map

Photo Tip: This one is in a parking lot in the Arts District. We went in the middle of the day and there were cars parked, so it was difficult to take photos with the mural. There are also tons of murals around the area if you have time to explore.

The murals are always changing, but stop by for the latte art, desserts, neon sign, and interior – all really cute.
