Best Instagram Spots in Los Angeles

After living in LA for 4+ years, I’ve decided to put together a list of the best Instagram spots in Los Angeles. If you scroll through this list, you’ll notice a theme. I’m only including the best (and my personal favorite) walls and murals in LA. This post will be helpful if you’re looking for some great colorful and creative backgrounds to see and photograph in LA, and who isn’t? Our murals and street art are just one of many things that make the city of angels one of the most amazing places in the world! Another great thing is that more than half of these are located on or very close to Melrose, so if you’re on vacation or only in LA for a limited time, you can make a day of exploring Melrose and seeing these murals. Stay tuned for a separate post featuring scenery like Griffith Observatory and the LACMA lampposts. For now, here’s my mural focused list of the best Instagram spots in Los Angeles:

1) Girls Tour Wall

*This is now orange, but I prefer the pink!

Find it at: Sorella Boutique, 712 N Orange Grove Avenue

2) La La Land Mural

*This one is constantly changing and currently is home to a Coachella mural! Before these, it was a Valentine’s Day themed wall with pink and purple lip prints against a white background, and I’m sure they’ll change it again when Coachella 2017 is over!

Find it at: Carrera Cafe, 8251 Melrose Avenue
