Top 5 Hottest Chicago Neighborhoods…According To Instagram
Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them on a variety of social networking platforms. Here are the 5 Chicago neighborhoods most active on Instagram, based on a geotagged data.
5. South Loop
It’s no surprise to see the home of the Chicago Bears make the list. While Soldier Field’s capacity of 61,500 makes it the third smallest NFL stadium, high demand for tickets (and some of the highest ticket prices in the country) may encourage folks to capture those coveted sports moments, to be enjoyed forever.
4. West Loop
Now home to THE hottest restaurants in Chicago, including Girl & The Goat, Graham Elliot’s, and Santorini (to name a few), there’s no shortage of Instagram-happy foodies eager to show off their latest culinary escapades. And while Ex Bull Derrick Rose’s health may forever be in question, legions of basketball and music fans visiting the United Center will continue to add to the neighborhood’s vibrancy, excitement and presence on social media.
3. Fulton Market
1 word- google
Duck Duck Goat, The Publican, Fulton Market Kitchen are places to grab a quick bite.
2. Lakeview- kinda old news but instagram loves it
While the Chicago Cub’s weren’t quite able to overcome the “Curse of The Billy Goat” this year, credit Lakeview’s Wrigley Field with attracting locals and tourists alike. As one of Chicago’s most popular residential neighborhoods, the area remains a recreational hot-spot, well into the off-season.
1. Wicker Park
Located on North Avenue, Asrai Garden is an Instagrammer’s dream, place to shop.
Everyone flocks to Big Star for its take-out taco counter and sprawling backyard, but don’t miss its next-door sibling for a different spin on Mexican fare. Dove’s Luncheonette is another great place to see what Wicker Park is all about.
The elevated Bloomingdale Trail (or the 606 to locals) runs east-west from Bucktown to another hot neighborhood, Logan Square, along unused train tracks
