Before my recent trip to Austin, I knew I wanted to find the most instagrammable places to add to my IG feed. The lists I found online were helpful, but I decided to turn to some of my blogger friends to see what they recommended.

I was just in Austin for a weekend but tried to get as many places checked off as possible.

There were a few restaurants & coffee shops that I didn’t get a chance to see (Texas French Bread, Grizzeldas, Sway, Cafe No Se, Halcyon Mueller), but here are thirteen places I found to be super instagrammable based on my own experiences!

I hope you find this list useful!

1. 360 Bridge

When you’re on the 360 Bridge overlook, you’re going to want to get as many angles as possible. This place is too gorgeous not to!

There’s the beautiful architecture of the bridge:

And the gorgeous winding river:

Just keep in mind that you have to climb a few rocks to get to the overlook.

Also, there was a DJ at the top when we went! He’s probably not always there, but it sure was fun having some music in the background!

2. Laguna Gloria

There are quite a few Instagrammable things at Laguna Gloria at The Contemporary Austin.

My favorite is the inside of their office (you’ll go into the office to pay $5 to explore Laguna Gloria).

And then there’s all the beauty outside! From sculptures to lake views, you’ll find a ton of photo opportunities!

3. You’re My Butter Half mural

This mural is randomly on the side of a building in a neighborhood-like setting. It’s definitely a great spot for best friends or couples!

4. Matcha at The Factory

This coffee shop knows how to do matcha. Is this the prettiest matcha latte you’ve ever seen? Because it’s the prettiest matcha latte I’ve ever seen.

And while you’re at the Factory, don’t forget to have some fun and snap some pics on their fun hanging swings!

5. 6th Street

With pretty buildings and plenty of bars and restaurants, 6th Street is a must. If you’re a music fan, you’ll fall in love with the live music on 6th Street!

6. Josephine House

How beautiful is this cafe?

Wander inside for some more fun photo spots!

7. Peace, Love, Austin mural

This mural is in downtown Austin, right by the Google store, and definitely represents the all-around Austin vibes of peace and love!

8. I Love You So Much mural

Yet another instagrammable mural in Austin! This one is a classic, located on South Congress.

Don’t worry about not having someone there to take your photo… there’s usually somewhat of a line to take a picture on the weekends! And if not, you can just grab a passerby. They’ll understand 🙂

9. South Congress

While you’re at the “I love you so much” mural, you might as well explore South Congress! This place is filled with pretty areas!

10. Le Politique

Le Politique is definitely on the most instagrammable places in Austin list because of it’s adorable decor!

Inside you’ll find a gorgeous marble bar with a retro feel.

Just be warned- if you’re going on a weekend, it’s going to be crowded.

11. Love Mural & Sledd Nursery

I’m definitely feeling love vibes in this city!

This mural is right across from Sledd Nursery, which is filled with gorgeous plants (need I mention how instagrammable plants can be?)!

12. Trace

I love the vibes of this hotel & restaurant. When you go in the hotel, you are welcomed by a cute succulent wall, too!
