Instagram usage doubled between June 2016 and 2018, with the platform hosting over 40 billion photos and 95 million posts added each day. The immense traffic on the social media site can cause saturation of content and leave your timeline slightly stale with the same posts circulating constantly. Fortunately, plenty of places in the South Florida area have the extra pizzazz needed to push your profile to the top.


Located in Boca Raton, Bubbleology, a small café with a science motif, specializes in the sweet side of life. They offer several milk tea, fruit tea and coffee options with the ability to “experiment” with flavors. This experimentation includes the customer’s choice of milk, ice level, tapioca, flavored jelly and popping boba. Their most notable menu item includes a “bubble waffle.” This dessert wraps a regular-sizes waffle into a cone shape and fills it with the gelato flavor of your choosing with the option of additional toppings and sauces. The scientific theme and elaborate confections work together to add some sugar to a bland Instagram feed.

Museum of Ice Cream

The Museum of Ice Cream took social media by storm with a flood of photos showing people playing in a pool of sprinkles, posing in front of ice cream-inspired sculptures and swinging leisurely on an ice cream sandwich. The attraction sold 30,000 tickets within the opening week which prompted multiple locations to open in Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. Every room fits a different sugary theme including a bar with complementary “melted ice cream” otherwise known as milk in a carton. The bright pink walls and elaborate decorations serve as great photo opportunities to brighten up your Instagram and grab a treat while you snap pictures.

Vizcaya Museum & Garden

The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens previously served as the villa and estate of businessman James Deering on Biscayne Bay in current Coconut Grove, Miami. The 20th century estate features extensive Italian Renaissance gardens, native woodland landscape and historic village outbuildings. The landscape and architecture encompass Veneto and Tuscan Italian Renaissance models in the Mediterranean Revival style with Baroque elements. The overall theme of the architecture and garden revolves around grandeur and complexity. The museum provided the setting for many films as well, such as “Any Given Sunday” and “Iron Man 3.” This historic landmark educates its visitors while diversifying your photo gallery with the natural scenery and iconic architectural style.
