10 Most Instagrammable Spots in San Francisco


As one of the most Instagrammed cities in the world, San Francisco truly contains some of the most photogenic spots you'll ever set your eyes upon, and we've rounded up some of the city's favorite Instagram locations. Check out our list below:

The Golden Gate Bridge

Whether you've never been to San Francisco or even own an Instagram account, you've seen pictures of The Golden Gate Bridge. It may seem cliche for the Golden Gate Bridge to hold the first spot on this list, but it really is the #1 Instagrammed spot in San Francisco - actually, #10 on the world list.

Pier 39

San Francisco's top photographed pier, featuring a bustling waterfront, the famous Pier 39 Sea Lions, street performers, and seafood eateries, including over a dozen places to grab steaming clam chowder in a fresh-baked sourdough bread bowl.





The Painted Ladies

How many different angles can you capture this row of familiar Victorian Painted Ladies while belting out the theme song to "Full House?"



Union Square

We're not sure if it's the swanky shops and hotels or the iconic heart sculptures all over Union Square Park that everyone loves to post, but Union Square is one of San Francisco's most Instagrammed spots. During Christmas, the ice rink opens up, as well as a gigantic, decked out, Christmas tree to add to your holiday – and Instagram – cheer.

San Francisco City Hall

The jaw-dropping architecture of this State Capitol-esque landmark makes the San Francisco City Hall a favorite wedding ceremony spot. So get married – and post it on Instagram! Or snap shots of this gorgeous venue, while spying couples around you tie the knot.

Castro District

The next three spots are famous in the Instagram street art series and the infamous Castro Street is the best place to start. No matter what you find on the walls, don't forget a well-angled shot of Castro's rainbow crosswalks.

Venturing into Jack Kerouac Alley, you'll discover art to your left and to your right, along with poetic inscriptions on the ground, so go ahead and post a selfie with your favorite one.

Clarion Alley

An awesome place to explore and get some beautiful background photos with you in or out of them. And the artwork in Clarion Alley changes, so you'll definitely be coming back.




Dolores Park

One of San Francisco's favorite places to get some sun on a lazy Sunday afternoon – you'll notice it with the crowds of people dotting the grassy knolls of Dolores Park. Bring a picnic to this Instagram-lovable spot while enjoying the vibrant scene against the city skyline.
