Boston is full of sites and attractions, and these days most of us always have a camera ready. If you’re looking for some of the most picture-perfect places to post on Instagram, you certainly have some great options all across the city.

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum 

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is magnificent in its own right, but its courtyard is truly Instagram worthy. The courtyard showcases seasonal displays that are constantly changing, making this a great place to visit time and time again. 

Boston Public Garden

Boston Public Garden is home to the iconic swan boats, plus the spring and summer blooms are truly stunning. If you time it right, you may be able to capture some beautiful roses or tulips during your visit.

Acorn Street

Rumored to be the city’s most photographed street, Acorn Street on Beacon Hill is a popular spot for tourists. Go there for the historic brick homes and the cobblestone street, plus, of course, the Instagrammable shots.

Boston Harborwalk

Stretching for 43-miles, Boston Harborwalk is a great place to take in some of the best views in Boston. Running along the shoreline, the linear park connects up with dozens of other parks, museums, beaches, shops, and restaurants. It’s a popular spot to grab some city skyline shots along the way.

Dewey Square

Dewey Square in the Financial District is home to some rotating murals, which makes it a great spot to catch some street art and some greenspace, too. It’s a popular spot during the summertime, but you can get some great photos any time of the year.


Chinatown isn’t just a hot spot for great food, shopping, and culture. The neighborhood gates are commonly the backdrop of Instagram posts. If you time it right, you may be able to go during Lunar New Year when the area is packed with performances, music, and the arts.
