Beignets and Breweries! These Are the Most Instagrammed Food Destinations in the U.S.
New Orleans’ cherished Café Du Monde, which has been slinging beignets and chicory coffee 24 hours a day for over 150 years, is the most-Instagrammed spot in Louisiana, according to a new ranking of commonly IG’d spots across the U.S.
While most of the places on the list are sports stadiums, universities or natural beauties like parks, there are a few foodie-catnip locations in the roundup. Other than Café du Monde, Harpoon Brewery captured Vermont’s most-Instagrammed crown, not — as one would think — the Ben & Jerry’s creamery.
Additionally, both the Iowa and Minnesota State Fairs topped their respective state’s most-snapped spots — and, let’s be honest, we know the real draw here is pictures of deep-fried butter.
Oh, and butter cows. How could we forget butter cows? Butter sculptures of farm animals = “like” bait.
One thing you must do in each state #Iowa Visit the #ButterCow at the #IowaStateFair A dynasty of five master artists have sculpted the Butter Cow over the years. He's been a State Fair tradition since 1911. At 600 pounds, the Butter Cow could butter 19,200 slices of toast. #ThankYouUSA #USA Repost @ohiodairyfarmers
As for top travel destinations, Disney World, the Grand Canyon, Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and Saint Louis Zoo won their respective states, which makes total sense: No one knows you’re in a cool place unless you take selfies there.
