It takes a lot of work trying to get the best angles for a selfie that will leave people envying you and your lifestyle. We’ve all posted pictures of our prettiest foods, snapped our best vacation ‘grams, and tried to document our most glamorous moments online. But how far are you willing to go for the ultimate Instagram-worthy shot?
Since every social media post is an adventure, we are rounding up the top 5 places to visit to make sure your Instagram is #fire!
1. Museum of Ice Cream
If you’ve got a sweet tooth and dreamed of swimming in a pool full of sprinkles then you’re in luck! The Museum of Ice Cream is home to a waist-deep pool full of plastic rainbow sprinkles, a life-size ice cream sandwich swing, a jungle room full of chocolate-covered frozen bananas, and a life-size sand castle room. The museum calls itself the place “where flavors are mysteries, toppings are toys, and sprinkles make the world a better place.” We happen to whole-heartedly agree.
If this sounds like an experience you don’t want to miss, then make sure to get your travel bags ready. This exhibition is only available during select seasons in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and its recent opening in Miami for Art Basel in Miami Beach. Tickets for the Miami location are still on sale and can be purchased here.
2. The Lantern Festival
There’s nothing as beautiful as a starry night. The only problem is if you live in the suburbs, then this may be hard to find. But search no more, as The Lantern Festival is hosted worldwide to give you a magical Instagram-worthy shot.
Light up the sky with your highest hopes and dreams as thousands join together with lanterns for an unforgettable night that will leave your Instagram feed gazed upon. Check the event’s page to find a location near you.

4. The Color Factory
Wassily Kandinsky once said, “Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” Let your soul be influenced by Color Factory’s two story interactive pop-up exhibition, featuring work by artists Jacob Dahlgren, Tom Stayte, Geronimo Balloons, Tosha Stimage, and many more.
Get lost in thousands of colored ribbons, sink into a giant yellow ball pit, take a balloon bath in a room full of enormous blue balloons, or color in the illustrations in the green room with life-sized markers. This place is sure to brighten up your Instagram feed!
5. Emmanuelle Moureaux Exhibition
Math may not have been your favorite subject in the past, but this installation might change your mind. During the 10th anniversary of the National Art Center of Tokyo, they hired French architect and artist Emmanuelle Moureaux to transform their 6,500 sq. foot space into something enchanting and colorful. The artist used over 60,000 paper cut-outs, in every color you could imagine to create a gradient effect for her “Forest of Numbers” and “Color of Time” exhibit.
If this isn’t worth your selfie then we don’t know what it is!
