LA's Top 5 Most Instagrammable Places
With LA fashion week coming up, we’re preparing for some killer Insta moments. We know that many of our influencers will be making their way to LA for the first time, and we can’t let them miss out on what this city has to offer. No matter how busy you might get running from show to show, it’s worth making a trip to these five LA spots. Your Instagram will thank you.
LA Arts District
Located on the east side of downtown LA, this historic neighborhood is filled with art galleries, street art, and museums. Artists have flocked to his safe haven for creativity since the early 70’s, and generations have left their mark on the neighborhood. Although it’s changed greatly in recent years, you can still come to the Arts District for a glimpse of the underground, gritty, side of a city known for glitz and glamour.
Did I mention glitz and glamour? No review of LA’s top spots would be complete without the world-famous Beverly Hills neighborhood. Take a stroll down Rodeo Drive and you might catch sight of a celebrity. At the very least, you’ll find this mural, which was basically made for Instagram, right?
Check out Venice Beach for surf, sun, and a little something for everyone. Trendy shops, food trucks, street performers and quirky gift shacks abound, along with a skate park and outdoor gym. Of course, the health conscious will find a run along the wide, white beaches just as rewarding. Whatever your thing is, you’re sure to find it here.
Venice Canal Historic District
Not far from Venice Beach, you’ll find the Venice Canal Historic District. Built in 1905, the neighborhood was originally intended to echo the style of Venice Italy. Although most of the canals were filled in and turned into streets for cars, a few remain as a beautiful, whimsical example of a Los Angeles that almost was.
The Hollywood Sign
No trip to LA is complete without a visit to the iconic Hollywood Sign. Set on top of Mount Lee, these nine letters have become the symbol of the city of LA, and a must-have shot for every first time visitor. If you do nothing else during you whirlwind trip to LA fashion week, make sure you find the time to make a detour to Hollywood Hills and capture this shot. You won’t regret it.
