We can—and do—spend hours just scrolling through Instagram feeds. If there's one thing we've learned from those not-so wasted hours is that Instagram makes Philly look pretty damn good in any light. And with summer quickly approaching, it's the perfect time to explore the city. That's why we've compiled more than a dozen of the most photogenic places in the city, from the mysterious and cool Graffiti Pier to the incredible murals scattered throughout.

Got a favorite 'gram-worthy spot you'd care to share? Leave a comment, or send us a tip.
