Miller Park Among America’s Most Instagrammed Spots

Here’s something that will make a Director of New Media very proud: Finding out that Miller Park is the top Instagrammed landmark in Wisconsin!

This news comes from a recent TIME article, which lists the Top 50 Most Instagrammed Places is America.

For the article, TIME had exclusive access to the data from Instagram, the popular photo-sharing app that boasts a user base of over 400 million. From that data, TIME was able to map out the most frequently geo-tagged spots in each of the 50 states.

As Brewers fans, we all know how gorgeous Miller Park is and how lucky we are to have it as the home of the Brewers, so I guess this news isn’t too surprising. Still, I’m also ecstatic that so many of us have taken to Instagram as a form of expression.

Thank you for making us tops; keep snapping those pics!

Had to work on #FathersDay but at least I got to bring dad with me. #MLBThanksDad #Brewers #MILvsCIN

A photo posted by Caitlin Moyer (@caitlinmoyer) on

Many other sporting venues made this list, including several other ballparks such as Wrigley Field, Camden Yards, Comerica Park, Fenway Park and Kauffman Stadium. Other spots on the list ranged from national parks, beaches and universities to theme parks, museums and other attractions.
