Miami, known for its stunning views, vibrant culture, and picturesque streets, has made a significant mark on social media, particularly Instagram. A recent study by Wanderu, a travel search platform, has officially declared Miami the home of the two most Instagram-famous streets in the United States, with Calle Ocho taking the spotlight.
A national treasure: Calle Ocho's rise to Instagram fame
Calle Ocho, also known as Southwest Eighth Street, has secured its place as the 16th most Instagram-famous street in the U.S., with an impressive 186,284 hashtags. Located in the heart of Little Havana, the National Trust for Historic Preservation declared this iconic street a "national treasure" in 2017. Calle Ocho embodies the essence of Miami's rich Cuban heritage with lively music, colorful murals, and a vibrant atmosphere that's a treat for both locals and visitors.
Miami dominates Instagram's top streets
While Calle Ocho stands out in its own right, Miami's dominance on Instagram doesn't end there. Ocean Drive in South Beach has clinched the coveted number-one spot, boasting an astonishing 1,056,081 hashtags. This picturesque stretch along the Atlantic, adorned with swaying palm trees, Art Deco hotels, and a lit nightlife, has become an iconic symbol of Miami's allure.
Not far behind, Northwest Second Avenue in Miami, home to the world-renowned Wynwood Walls, secured second place with an impressive 961,020 hashtags. This vibrant street showcases colorful graffiti and stunning murals that have captivated artists and art enthusiasts from around the globe.
Instagram's stamp of approval
These rankings reflect the undeniable charm and allure of Miami's streets, each with its unique character and appeal. Instagram, with its visual storytelling power, has given these streets a platform to shine on a global scale.
As Calle Ocho continues to captivate hearts with its Cuban soul, and Ocean Drive and NW 2nd Avenue paint vivid images of Miami's beauty, these streets stand as living testaments to the city's diversity and culture.
