Instagram is really shaping how we experience life. Everything we see and do goes on the ‘gram. The app has grown in popularity because connects seamlessly to Facebook. Instagram is great where you’re sharing pictures and video with anyone who wants to follow or using it to share photos with friends and family via Facebook.
Every year Instagram has a blog post with information on popular people, places, and things that are shared on the app. As you’d imagine, Las Vegas usually fares pretty well in the Instagram Year In Review when it comes travel.
The Las Vegas Strip was the 10th most instagrammed location in the world. Las Vegas shows its popularity on the Vegas Strip for one main reason. The number of beautiful and memorable casino-resorts in a small place. Seven of the top 10 hotels in the World on Instagram are on the Las Vegas Strip.
The most Instagrammed hotel in the United States in 2017 is Bellagio. Marina Bay Sands in Singapore snagged the top spot for most Instagrammed hotel in the world. Bellagio’s popularity isn’t much of a surprise. The iconic property has so many memorable locations to take pictures. The photo opportunities start before ever stepping foot inside the casino.
There may not be a better location in Las Vegas for pictures and videos than the beautiful fountains in front of Bellagio. The casino in the background isn’t so bad either.
Once you walk into the Bellagio, there are countless locations. The first thing you see when you enter the hotel is the gorgeous Chihuly glasswork on the ceiling of the lobby.
Just past the lobby is the Botanical Gardens and Conservatory. The displays change throughout the year so there’s always something new.
Even the lobby bar, Petrossian, is a great place to take a picture. There’s something elegant and anachronistic about the pianist at the center of a bar that sits between the busy lobby and casino floor.
Bellagio is just the beginning of Las Vegas on the most Instagrammed Hotels in the World list. Guessing the rest of the Las Vegas hotels shouldn’t be too difficult.
