Our favorite photos on this account are the fancy picnic ones with lots of bright patterns, colors and of course food. @aydaarrt sure knows how to give her meals proper TLC and make food look even better than it tastes!



This fashionable Instagram all-star finds the most picturesque places in DC to take hip pictures, recently accompanied by an adorable weimaraner pup named Luna (who shares an Instagram account with @_0mari’s two cats).

@pootie_ting’s latest Instagram trend is finding all of the colorful murals in DC to pose with and snap pictures of, filling the feed with bright colors, patterns and Pride advocacy.



Like a good food Instagram account should, @dcfoodies hits your sweet spot and shows you where to go for the best bites in the city. Check them out if you’re looking for lunch or a snack while you’re out and about in DC on Independence Day!

Insta-mom @pluswonderland shows off how incredibly cute her son is as well as her artistic skills and love for flowers. You can bet that once her kids (she has another one on the way!) get older you can turn to her account for family-fun ideas in DC.



This girl really knows the ins and outs of DC. Her pictures all show off cool spots to visit in the city, publicize local events and beautifully showcase the city’s famous monuments and photo-ops.

Take a load off. #igdc
