Boston brims with spots worthy of digital immortality. Here are the 20 worthiest of your next Instagram.
↑ America’s oldest public park (est. 1634) is a no-brainer. It is full itself of Instagrammable features itself, including notable monuments and the Frog Pond.
↑ The botanic wonder next to Boston Common contains—as you would expect—splendorous fauna and flowers. This time of year, too, you will likely catch a swan boat—or an actual swan—in your shot.
↑ America’s oldest major-league ballpark. Enough said.

↑ New England’s busiest train and bus hub teems with locals and tourists, a really prime place to capture the region’s energy.
Rose Kennedy Greenway
↑ The famed 1.5-mile linear park born of the Big Dig has attractions galore and also boasts some enviable vantages for capturing fantastic angles on Boston’s diverse architecture.
Paul Revere House
↑ Just what it sounds like: The one-time abode of the immortal revolutionary. It’s a snapshot of Boston’s colonial vestiges and it’s right near the entry of Boston’s super-quaint, super-historic, super-crowded North End.
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
↑ Unsurprisingly, perhaps, the museum’s interior is one of the most beautiful in Boston.
↑ This one is bucket-list as far as Instagram. Acorn has been called the most beautiful street in America, what with its narrowness, its cobblestone, and its federal townhouses lining either side.

↑ Yes, yes—Boston City Hall and City Hall Plaza are often described as hideous, or at least uninviting (though that might change in the plaza’s case). But the structures—City Hall in particular—are among the best examples on earth of the brutalist architectural style.
Franklin Park Zoo
Here’s a little bit about our giraffes: Amari was born here at Franklin Park Zoo on July 24, 2016. While she’s now a young, healthy and curious giraffe, her life got off to a tough start. After some medical issues led to a stay at Cummings Veterinary Medical Center at Tufts University after her birth, our incredible team of keepers worked around the clock to hand-rear her and get her to be the healthy nearly 2-year-old that she is today. I fed Amari her first and last bottle, and have grown as a keeper alongside her. Chad is the “new guy” here at the Zoo who arrived to us from Santa Barbara Zoo as a breeding recommendation by the Giraffe Species Survival Plan. If you’re trying to tell the two apart, look for Chad’s “California tan” – his coat has a more reddish tint to it. He also loves to carry sticks in his mouth – as you can see in this photo! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Becca, Zookeeper, Hooves & Horns, #FPZoo ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #KeeperTakeover
↑ One of the best urban zoos in the nation is also unsurprisingly one of the best Instagram shots. The surrounding Franklin Park—and its surrounding neighborhoods—are wonderful fodder as well.
Fort Point Channel
↑ The maritime artery runs between two of the city’s busier and hipper areas.
↑ The 281-acre, Harvard-owned Arnold Arboretum overflows with plant and tree life, a natural backdrop in the literal and figurative senses.
Tarde gostosa para passear por Beacon Hill.☀️Lovely day to stroll through Beacon Hill. vic_nkt . . . . #boston #usa #bostontips #topnotchboston #bostondotcom #bostonlife #beautifulcity #beautifuldestinations #theprettycities #goexplore #nothingisordinary #thatsdarling #iloveboston #iliveboston #picoftheday #photooftheday #exploreboston #bostonsworld #tripaddicts #bestvacations #topdestinos #destinosimperdiveis #dicasdeviagem #viagemeturismo #boaviagemoglobo
↑ The tony Beacon Hill enclave includes some of the most beautiful Georgian- and federal-style townhouses in Boston.
↑ One of the oldest large buildings in America is surrounded by a bustling marketplace.
↑ Instagram from where the British empire peaked in the Americas. Monument Square surrounds the Bunker Hill memorial to the 1775 battle of the same name and offers not only an amazing backdrop but a superb vantage for Boston Harbor shots and shots of Charlestown’s most charming streets.
Boston Harbor Islands
↑ The state and national site unfolds over 34 islands and inland parks, presenting plenty of options for the perfect shot of a lighthouse, the Boston skyline, wildlife, Boston Harbor, a flock of seagulls, etc—very, very maritime.
↑ One of Boston’s truly grand public spaces, Copley Square serves as a crossroads for the city. It sits amid the historic Trinity Church, the 200 Clarendon skyscraper (Boston’s tallest), and the main (and very beautiful) branch of the Boston Public Library.
New England Aquarium
↑ An obvious choice for clicking away part of a day, the aquarium also perches appropriately on a prime spot of the Boston waterfront.
Commonwealth Avenue Mall
↑ Memorials and statues dot the 1.3-mile run through Back Bay, one of Boston’s more beautiful neighborhoods. Plus, it ends on its eastern terminus at the Public Garden.
↑ The cable-stayed bridge between downtown Boston and Charlestown is an engineering marvel and a gorgeous symbol of the city.
