We trav­el­ers can’t re­sist view­ing the world through a lens – and then madly post­ing the re­sults on In­sta­gram, with a great flut­ter of hash­tags to pro­claim our #cal­i­for­nialove and our #in­stadis­ney fan­dom.

So Globe­hunters.com, the travel book­ing site, re­cently crunched the num­bers to find the 50 most In­sta­grammed tourist at­trac­tions in North and South Amer­ica. The re­sult is a fun col­lec­tion that hits a wide va­ri­ety of pop­u­lar land­marks, from Florida’s Walt Dis­ney World – where 8.3 mil­lion In­sta­gram posts pro­claim it the #hap­pi­est­placeon­earth or a sim­i­lar vari­ant – to Machu Pic­chu, Rio’s Su­gar­loaf Moun­tain and Ore­gon’s Crater Lake.
