Now we know what you’re thinking. Miami summers are always hot, but this year we’ve experienced heat like never before. We’ve broken records left and right, almost receiving daily alerts from the National Weather Service to stay cool and hydrated. So when we hear that Miami has been acknowledged as one of the most picturesque places to spend this summer, a part of us wants to say, “Of course it is!” while the other half says, “Are you really sure?”
Travel service provider Travelbag has announced a list of the prettiest places to visit in summer 2023 and turns out, Miami has landed in the top 10. The study analyzed data behind Instagram and TikTok hashtags from over 100 cities, unveiling which locations offer the most beautiful shots for your social media posts this summer.
With over 33,800 hashtags on Instagram and 1.4 million views on TikTok, the Magic City finds itself at #9 on the list, not far behind NYC and Sydney, Australia. From its tropical fruit to its warm ocean water, Miami has been praised for being the “ultimate hot-weather destination.”
“Loud, bold, and brazenly confident, Miami is built for the summer,” Travelbag writes. You can say that again.
So while we say it’s best to keep most of your Instagram pictures indoors in this broiling summer 😅, we won’t argue that we have some of the best sights — beautiful architecture, waterfront views, world-class museums and vibrant street art, to name a few. Above all, our beaches are unmatched.
In case you’re wondering which city was named the absolute prettiest in summer, London, UK took first place with more than 160,000 Instagram hashtags and nearly 21 million views on TikTok.
