This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – We’ve written before about how no idea is original and we’re all Instagram imitators, well, that applies to landmarks too, it seems.
Photography and design firm Printique analyzed Instagram hashtags and reduced the data to show the 10 most well-known and best-photographed landmarks in the United States.
Are there any surprises? We have the list for you to have an overview.
Times Square – 410,438 hashtags per year
Unsurprisingly, at the top of our list of the most Instagrammed US attractions is #timessquare.
The place is not only considered the busiest commercial intersection in America, but also one of the most visited areas.
It is famous not only for being the most hashtagged, but also for being visited by around 50 million people a year. With those numbers in mind, we’re surprised he doesn’t see more action on Instagram.
The Grand Canyon – 358,171 hashtags per year
There’s no doubt about it, the Grand Canyon is not only one of the most well-known landmarks in the United States, but it’s also a place of true natural beauty.

At 277 miles long and an average of 10 miles wide, it’s a huge wonder of the world and a real draw for the Instagram crowd.
According to the data, the Grand Canyon hashtag has racked up more than 358,000 images per year. Impressive.
Brooklyn Bridge – 313,836 hashtags per year
Frankly, we’re surprised to see the Brooklyn Bridge appear above the Golden Gate Bridge on this list, but we imagine the number of visitors to New York each year explains some of that.
New York City is said to welcome around 66 million tourists a year. Although obviously this was abandoned recently, but the Brooklyn Bridge still has some appeal.
Golden Gate Bridge – 273,396 hashtags per year
With a magnificent view of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge is an attractive spot for a photo. The iconic bridge is instantly recognizable and even an amateur photographer can easily get a brilliant shot of the area.
His hashtag has racked up 273,396 posts a year. We imagine that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to the actual number of photos taken of the area.
Empire State Building – 265,920 hashtags per year
The Empire State Building is perhaps one of the most well-known skyscrapers in the United States, if not the world.
At 102 stories, it was the tallest building in the world from 1931 to 1970. Only then was it surpassed by the World Trade Center. One thing is for sure, it’s popular. So say the 265,920 hashtags of this one posted on Instagram.
Statue of Liberty – 187,370 hashtags per year
Lady Liberty holds a special place in the hearts of Americans across the country because she represents freedom. After all, it was gifted to the United States as a memorial to the nation’s independence.
At 305 feet tall, the Statue of Liberty is hard to miss and an icon that has been well photographed over the decades. Even more so with the rise of Instagram.
Yosemite National Park – 125,699 hashtags per year
From man-made objects to other wonders of nature. There are many regions in the United States that attract tourists and locals.
Yosemite is a huge national park that measures 1,200 square miles and is home to valleys, grasslands, wilderness areas and more. He is best known for his stunts and these undoubtedly account for most of the 125,699 photos posted on Instagram throughout the year.
Yellowstone National Park – 95,483 hashtags per year
Yellowstone National Park is even more impressive, spanning 3,468.4 square miles with beautiful lakes, canyons, rivers, and mountain ranges.
It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a true place of beauty. Well known for its many geothermal features, including the Old Faithful Geyser.
Yellowstone naturally offers easily Instagrammable spots and it’s no wonder it’s popular.
Space Needle – 94,045 hashtags per year
Located in Seattle, Washington, the Space Needle is an awe-inspiring landmark and feat of engineering. It’s not only intriguing to the eye, but also built to last.
The Space Needle can withstand winds of up to 200 mph as well as earthquakes of magnitude up to 9.0. The Needle viewing platform is a draw, but the tower itself is also very photographic.
Hollywood Panel – 68,803 hashtags per year
Frankly, we’re shocked to see the Hollywood sign so low on this list of Instagrammed landmarks. Maybe it’s a little too cliché for the platform?
