    It’s the best barbecue in town, and if you’re going to Instagram food, you have to Instagram this one! No Kansas City trip is complete without a quick meal at this local joint.

    The memorial itself is an impressive view, and perfect for travel photography themes on your feed. You can even stick around at night to see how the view is when it’s dark.

    Whether you’re taking in a show or just there for the view, the Kauffman Center is worth a trip. It has impressive architecture outside and indoors.

    These may be our top 10, but they’re not the only spots social media worthy. As long as you have great lighting, a fun pose, and apps like Instasize to make your good photos great, any photo you take anywhere is worth your feed!
