Instagramable Los Angeles


Grab your camera because we’re taking you to some of the most photogenic parts of L.A.

As the second most popular destination in the Greyhound network, there’s no question that Los Angeles should be a definite must-see. But when you’re headed to the City of Angels and are in need of some serious photo inspiration, look no further because we know exactly where you need to head next.

  1. 1Venice Canals

    Walk Europe in Southern California

    That’s right, there are Venice Canals in Los Angeles and we found them just for you – near Venice Beach, of course! In the early 1900s, local residents decided that the Italians shouldn’t be the only ones with beautiful canals, boats and bridges so they built their own. Grab your camera and take a stroll down these streets and make your way over some of the fantastic bridges. With several canals connected by bridges you’ll have no trouble finding places to explore during your trip to this part of the city. One of the perks – most of the streets around the canals are pedestrian-only, which is pretty rare in Los Angeles, so you’ll be able to enjoy some quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

  2. 2Griffith Park

    Visit the abandoned zoo!

    If you’re looking for photos of zebras and for your chance to feed a giraffe, you’re ready for the L.A. Zoo. But if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to head down into the cages to feed the lions, or monkey around in a cage, the abandoned zoo at Griffith Park is the perfect place for you. While this was once a lively, bustling zoo filled with animals, one day it was emptied and left open to the public so anyone can walk in and get a first-hand look at what it’s like to be in the cages. Bring the kids so they can play in a giant jungle gym while the adults can get some artsy photos you can’t find many other places.

    Address: 4730 Crystal Springs Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90027

  3. 3LA Art District Graffiti

    Here you'll get the best Instagramable moments!

    When you’re looking for great Instagramable moments, you cannot go wrong with awesome street art, so naturally we had to add the L.A. Art District to our list. The Art District is on the East side of the city and is neighbors with Little Tokyo, and the Financial, Toy and Wholesale Districts, so if you find yourself making your way to any of these places it’ll be pretty easy to swing by to see the street art before your next stop. From colorful murals to black and white newspaper-inspired pieces, there’s a plethora of works to use as your backdrop for your next photo shoot. 

    Address: 203 S. Geary Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90013
