Do It For the 'Gram: Most "Instagrammable" Spots in DC
Our nation’s capital is home of the monuments and memorials. The White House, The National Monument, and a host of memorials have all been flicked up endlessly. The amount of Instagram feeds that boast pictures of the Lincoln Memorial or the National Mall are endless. But that’s not all the district has to offer! Have no fear, I have some of the most known and unknown instagrammable places in D.C.
I bought two of my plant babies from here and they are still flourishing to this day! If you want to get some Garden Girl aesthetics this where it’s at. Little Leaf is home of the succulents and it also has some cute stationery products. It’s a cute little jungle of a story to add some greenery to your IG feed.
Cuba Libre is another one of my favorite places! This Cuban spot is actually a restaurant, but at night it turns into a club. The decor, however, is what is completely instagrammable. One step in here and you’re transported into little Havana. Come here for dinner, a dance, and a cute photo op.
The Hirshorn is one of D.C.’s most well-known museums, and for good reason. They always have an evocative and interesting exhibit showing. Currently Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s Pulse exhibit is showing. This thought-provoking exhibit uses your own bodily information--your fingerprints, heartbeat, etc--to provide the art.
Bresca is a French-inspired restaurant with a twist. It also has a Michelin star, people. A Michelin Star. All my foodies know how big of a deal that is. What’s great about this place is how creative it is. Everything served is practically begging to be photographed! Just look at the Bee’s Knees drink they serve!
The National Arboretum is great for hiking and all my outdoorsy folks. It also hosts the notable National Capitol Columns. Although people do indeed know about this spot, it’s not overdone, so trust me you’ll still be sure to wow your followers.
