What's the most Instagrammed place in every state?

From the White House to the Grand Canyon, the United States has a lot of iconic places to photograph. Did you really visit if you didn't post it on Instagram?

As the year comes to a close, we took a look at some of the photo-sharing app's most popular things, courtesy of Instagram's 500 million active users. They love filters (the most popular are Clarendon and Gingham) and emojis (the most popular are hearts and the smiley face with heart eyes), and they shared the most on Halloween and 9/11.

The most Instagrammed places in the world are Disney Theme Parks, Universal Studios Theme Parks, Central Park in New York City, Times Square in New York City, the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum and the Las Vegas Strip. But each state has iconic Instagram spots too. Here are the top 5 most geo-tagged places in each state.
