Before you lap up that ice cream cone, start sipping that cup of coffee or wrap up that hike, you of course need to take a photo for Instagram. We’re only half-joking; sure, you should primarily do something because it brings you joy, but if documenting it brings in a few extra likes, well, who are we to argue. So get snapping, Angelenos, with these 24 landmarks, dishes and drinks that are ripe for Instagram.




The Bridge to Nowhere

Psst: You’ll want a sturdy pair of shoes and a dry pair of socks to navigate the river crossings during this 10-mile round-trip hike to behold a lonesome bridge north of Azusa.
