We all know Chicago is a photogenic place, with skyscrapers and mysterious public art and (occasionally) a bright green river. But where, exactly, are the most photogenic locations? Instagram crunched the numbers and told us. Below, the 10 Chicago places we Instagrammed most in 2016
1. Wrigley Field
Duh. That "World Series Champions" sign is begging for an Instagram. Here's one way to do it with a holiday spin, a romantic spin, and also, surprisingly, a TBOX spin?!?! (Yup—this photo was apparently taken at/near TBOX, according to the caption.)
2. Chicago O'Hare International Airport
Also duh. Not only is it home to the squiggly light art we all know and love, but also, planes are majestic. I dare you to think this plane doesn't look like a lion:
3. The Art Institute of Chicago
4. Navy Pier
The new Ferris wheel is very photogenic.
5. United Center
The Bulls play there, Adele played there (after a trip to the Shedd), and sometimes weird things like this happen there. It's honestly better without context.
6. Soldier Field
The Bears have some very passionate, Instagram-using fans.
7. Skydeck Chicago
If the Skydeck hadn't made this list, I would honestly be offended. What is better to Instagram than a see-through floor?
Well, Grant Park during Lollapalooza—but same difference. Honestly, this is no surprise either. As Kant would say; What is fest fashion without fest Instagram?
9. Lincoln Park Zoo
10. The Bean
There's something beautiful and contemplative about a snowcapped bean.
