You can learn a lot from Instagram hashtags. When people want to show off their vacation photos there’s always a flurry of hashtags at the end of the post. Which Florida beach did you go to? Which lake in Michigan did you go on a pontoon? Did you go to visit a desert? Florida beaches get tagged a lot, but there’s one beach that gets tagged more than the rest. Making that location the third most picturesque in America.
Experts at Storyboards used Instagram data to analyze the number of hashtags for various landscapes in America to discover which of those are the most picturesque. It makes sense, the more times a landscape is tagged, the more people want to brag about it. Number one on the list, amazingly, is not in Florida. And it’s not a beach, it’s a lake.
Placing first on the list of the most picturesque landscapes in America is Lake Tahoe, with 2,986,225 Instagram hashtags. Situated on the border of California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is the clearest lake in the U.S., with a 99.994% purity – plus, there are many outdoor activities to partake in there, from hiking to fishing. The celebrity golf tournament “American Century Championship” happens in July.
If you’re considering a visit to the Most Picturesque, Lake Tahoe, now is a good time.
