Just admit it. We’ve all done it. We've all gone on a social media hunt trying to find the best photo spots around Dallas because we're a little bored of all the same places.

Sure, populating the Instagram feed is easy when you’re on vacation. But, let’s face it — sometimes the day-to-day in D-town can feel a bit bland.

Well, it’s about to get real — Insta real. Here are 32 unique spots to strike a pose in-and-around Dallas to freshen up your feed.

Flippen Park

Where: 4421 N Versailles Ave, Dallas, TX 75205

If the street name is any indication of anything, it means you'll have tons of beautiful European-inspire architecture to strike a pose in front of. Fountains, gazebos, and surrounding estates can be your backdrop.

Flea Style

Where: 3009 Commerce St., Dallas, TX 75226

This downtown boutique has a few massive, pastel-colored murals surrounding the building. Some even have inspiring words!

Klyde Warren Park

Where: 2012 Woodall Rodgers Fwy, Dallas, TX 75201

It’s Dallas’ version of Central Park, which means you need to take a photo of this deck of green space. There are always Instagrammable activities happening, too — from yoga to dancing, food trucks to festivals, and other social events.

XOXO Dining

Where: 3121 Ross Ave, Dallas, TX 75225

The restaurant's pink exterior will give you enough content for a whole photo set, but there's even more to pose in front of inside.

There's a dreamy floral photo set up outside of the Highland Park shop. It's sure to make everyone stop scrolling and wish they were in Wonderland with you.

Ruibal’s Plants

Where: 601 S Pearl Expy, Dallas, TX 75201

There are plenty of statement-making live props to choose from at this plant and flower shop, located right across from the Dallas Farmers Market, which also happens to be a decent Instagram go-to.


Where: 1914 Commerce St. 19th floor, Dallas, TX 75201

This glam rooftop scene on the 19th floor of The Statler is made for fruity drinks — and fun photos — with a view that’s been called one of the most Instagrammable of downtown. Plus, did we say there’s a pool?

Otto’s Coffee and Fine Foods

Where: 1321 Commerce St, Dallas, TX 75202

Coffee ’grams will forever be in vogue. Get yours at this Viennese-style café at The Adolphus, the historic hotel downtown.

Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens

Where: 8525 Garland Rd, Dallas, TX 75218

Getting in touch with nature is always a good idea and the Dallas Arboretum has all of the lush blooms and greenery you could imagine — plus views of White Rock Lake. So stop and smell the flowers, and be rewarded with post-worthy pics.

Hotel Crescent Court

A favorite location for Dallas fashionistas, The Crescent's towering arches and the cute atrium create a sophisticated-chic vibe for any type of snap.

The Eye at The Joule

Where: 1601 Main St, Dallas, TX 75201

Play eye spy with this now-signature 30-foot-tall eyeball sculpture by artist Tony Tasset in downtown Dallas. It’s kinda weird, but all Dallasites have done it.

The Traveling Man

Where: Swiss Ave, Dallas, TX 75204

The stainless-steel robot man is made by local artist Brad Oldham — it’s like Dallas’ version of Oz’s Tin Man. It’s on the northeast side of the Deep Ellum Rail Station. But, at 38-feet-tall, you won’t have trouble finding it.

White Rock Lake

Where: 8300 E Lawther Dr, Dallas, TX 75218

This shopping mecca is quite magical — with beautiful Spanish-influenced architecture, a historic movie theater, overarching trees, luxe shops, and glittery stringer lights. On any given day, you’ll probably see a fashion blogger shooting there, too.

Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge

Where: Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, Dallas, TX 75207

The Santiago Calatrava-designed bridge has become almost as iconic to the city skyline as the ball in the sky that is Reunion Tower — which means it’s an Instagram mainstay with multiple angles that never get old. Take the photo from the pedestrian footbridge or the Trinity Groves area, though. Safety first.

Trinity River Audubon Center

Where: 6500 S. Great Trinity Forest Way, Dallas, TX 75217

We're not sending you here for bird pictures, we're sending you here because we can't resist the ultra-cool look of the event building. It gives you a whole view of the surrounding wildlife habitat.

Picole Pops

Where: 415 W. Davis St, Dallas, TX 75208

After grabbing a pop for yourself, pose with the giant popsicles to prove your stop.

Adriatica Village

Where: 2012 Woodall Rodgers Freeway

It's like a little Croation village in the middle of Texas. It has a lovely charm that'll add perfectly to your IG feed.

Let the walls do the talking, with the artsy-edgy collage of Deep Ellum murals that offer up a colorful background for your next post.
