A study carried out this month by Big 7 Travel has placed Chicago as one of the “most Instagrammable” places in the world. Of the 50 destinations that made it onto the list, Chicago was placed at number 8, up two places from last year’s finish of tenth.
Superseding the likes of London, Sydney, and Paris, this year Chicago finished just behind Italy’s enchanting Amalfi Coast while the tiny city-state of Singapore grabbed the top spot.
New York City was the only place in the United States to rank higher than Chicago coming in at number five whilst Washington’s Seattle and Louisiana’s New Orleans also featured in the top 50 further down the list.

Big 7 Travel included segments about each place that earned a spot. Chicago’s read “From the mind-bending “Bean” in Millennium Park to the ultra retro Chicago Theatre, there are more than a few reasons Chi-Town is one of the most Instagrammable places in the world. In addition to some seriously photo-friendly landmarks, there are also loads of restaurants – cough, cough, Hampton Social, built for the gram.”
