Tacoma’s Instagram Hot Spots

I have to confess, I got this idea from the Vancouver tourism website’s Vancouver’s Most Instagrammable Places. I loved the idea, because before our trip to Vancouver last fall, we’d never been and the tourism website’s IG photos were instrumental in helping us decide what we wanted to do and see while we were in the city. On a side note, we didn’t get to see and do everything we wanted, because of course we couldn’t, there’s about a million amazing things to see and do there.


In the same vein of Vancouver’s tourism site, I decided to create my own list of top places in Tacoma that deserve Instagram fame. It’s by no means exhaustive, and to be honest, I spent a couple months mulling which places I felt should be on the list.

Without any further ado, here they are:

  1. Point Defiance Rose Garden
  2. The Narrows Bridge
  3. Wright Park
  4. McMenamin’s Elks Lodge
  5. Spanish Steps
  6. Owen Beach
  7. Opera Alley
  8. Bridge of Glass
  9. Stadium High School
  10. Union Station

If you’re new to Tacoma, planning a visit to Grit City soon, or just love T-Town, the next time you’re at one of these places, feel free to snap a pic, tag me on Instagram and use #tacomaten.
