Some might say that social media use has gotten way out of hand, and I must agree. And I hate to say it, but I remind myself all the time to put down the phone, and just enjoy what is in front of me right now. OK, with that being said, USA Today compiled a list last year of the most instagrammed locations in every state. And I'm sure it's of no surprise to anyone here in the great state of Louisiana that New Orleans captured all five spots. And in 2018, Improved Photography updated their own list, and yes, New Orleans got Louisiana's top spot once again.

Although we have beauty everywhere in Louisiana, The Big Easy gets a lot of tourists, and that's most likely why they landed the top five. The official USA Today list is below, and I'll follow it with my top five most instagrammed suggestions. Let us know which ones should be on here, y'all!
