We often look to Instagram for travel inspiration, and most recently, we’ve even been scouting out local accounts that offer a real-time look at some of our favourite locations. It’s a practice we’d highly recommend if you’re looking for a true local-perspective. This month, it was Instagrammers from West Hollywood that left us starry-eyed. Here are the top 5 WeHo accounts you should follow to add a bit of Hollywood glamour to your Insta feed.
West Hollywood’s design district is an area that champions the very best in fashion, art, design and so much more. If you’re this way inclined, then you’ll enjoy the posts that you’ll see coming from this high-end district’s dedicated Instagram feed. Expect beautiful flat-lays, inspiring street-art and lots of foodie shots that’ll make you wish you were living the WeHo lifestyle.
The tourism board’s Instagram may seem like an obvious choice, but there’s no need to worry, you’ll find no cheesy or staged photos here. Instead, the board have tapped into the local perspective, posting photos they’ve been tagged in from other accounts alongside their own, expertly shot images. Pool-side sunsets, colourful cocktails and sun-kissed streets will keep your Instagram looking incredible even in the depths of winter.
Of course West Hollywood’s most famous offering would have its own Instagram account. And it’s hard not to love the quirky posts @TheSunsetStrip provides. From historic shots of the celebrities that have graced its venues to endless photos of mouth-watering food and drink; this is the account to follow for a real sense of what WeHo is all about.
The Andaz West Hollywood is a legendary establishment that has welcomed the likes of Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones over the years. Now, it’s one of the area’s leading luxury hotels and the @AndazWeHo Instagram account is out to prove it. Rooftop pool views, exclusive parties and nightlife shots; if this addition to your feed doesn’t induce wanderlust, we don’t know what will.
This is your one stop shop for all things arty and theatrical. An account that is all about publicising current exhibitions, shows and wider local talent; @WeHoArts will could easily plan your trip for you. It will make you realise just how diverse and vibrant West Hollywood really is.
