With over 500,000,000 users, Instagram is easily one of the most popular social media sites currently out. For those who have yet to join, you can post your own pics/videos or live vicariously through another person. You can send or receive hearts of approval for the piece of carefully selected content put on public display or experience the shame of having no likes on your picture and subsequently deleting (it’s not that serious but still).
All cynicism aside, 2016 is slowly coming to an end and even though it’s had a fair share of highs and lows, reviewing the year in retrospect is a human tradition.
Is it a necessary one?
Maybe not, but if you’re on this post…. you’re at least intrigued to see the list.
Hence, the barrage of end of year lists you see EVERYWHERE that I’m now contributing to.
I, sadly, am no different than the rest of the internet.
The most Instagrammed places in the world are Disney Theme Parks, Universal Studios Theme Parks, Central Park in New York City, Times Square in New York City, the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum and the Las Vegas Strip.
we live in Georgia, so none of those places matter for this post.
So sit back, tip up your dirty egg nog (unless you’re under 21, lactose intolerant, don’t drink or just hate egg nog) and lets take a look at the most Instagrammed places in “The Peach State” for 2016 according to IG.

The world’s busiest airport, is also the most geo-tagged place in the state of Georgia. Absolutely no one saw this coming.
