Top 23 Instagrams from Charlotte neighborhoods and landmarks

Earlier this week we linked to a Vox story on the most frequently Instagrammed location in each of the 50 states. North Carolina’s most popular spot was the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

I decided to dig a little deeper into Charlotte (read: creep on your photos) and look at the most popular photos geotagged to notable places around town. Let’s start with neighborhoods…

It probably goes without saying that these are public accounts that have used the location feature to geotag their photos. In the event there were multiple geotags for one hood (for example, you can geotag to “NoDa Charlotte Neighborhood” or “NoDa Arts & Entertainment District”), I went with the one with the highest number of likes.
