If you’re really into living healthy and eating right (and who in LA isn’t?) then you should definitely be following TheBalancedBlonde. Jordan Younger knows a thing or two about staying healthy in the big city, and taking super cute photos of food.

Food Instagrams seem to be plenty and bountiful in this day and age, but if you’re looking for the best opinon, then look no further. Josh Scherer started this account when he was only a student at UCLA, and in a few short years it has taken off in huge ways. Probably because it is one of the best places to get the best food advice the internet has to offer. He’s also a food editor at LA Magazine, so he knows what he’s talking about.


Matt Allard knows how to live life in LA to the fullest. He takes his followers along for all his many adventures, and if you follow him you’re sure to find some great spots for your own adventures. Not to mention, he has some incredible photography skills to boast. He makes living an epic life look like an everyday activity that the world should be participating in. LA never looked so good.

Scooter girl, you had style. Wherever you zoomed off to, I hope you're having a nice day.

Sarah Sherman Samuel’s page is basically LA in Instagram form.

Nathaniel Wood is one of the most eclectic and well-rounded LA based photographers that you will find on Instagram.

Don’t worry, it’s not just a bunch of photo’s of Coachella, there are a lot of cool behind the scenes images that most fans don’t get to see. Not to mention, she has a real knack for creating photos that emote a strong energy and feeling.

Of course there needs to be a shout out to the L.A. Tourism Board, because their Instagram is a work of art. Not only do they provide the best photos of every inch of the city, but they also have a vast knowledge of the different things to do and see while you’re in the city. Even locals can follow for great food, adventure, and fun things happening in the city.
