Six Instagram Accounts of the 716

In this blog Meredith DeLuca highlights six of the best Instagram accounts in the 716 that you NEED to follow.

Instagram is by far my favorite social media platform. You can avoid having to read every thought of everyone you went to high school with because there are no status updates. Unlike Facebook, if someone that doesn’t interest you follows you, you aren’t obligated to follow them back or be “friends.” Pictures and videos are just more fun to scroll through than people’s thoughts. Below are some of my favorite IG accounts with a Buffalo Niagara flare.

Dogs of Buffalo
What else is the internet or any social media platform good for if not for looking at cute dogs?! We love knowing that these gorgeous pooches are local. This is the perfect account to follow to get your daily puppy fix!

This little pal is a Bills fan.

 Buffalo Proud
The handle says it all! This account features everything from amazing local photography, weather reports and daily trips. They also feature random cool stuff like this NASA picture of the 716.

This satellite photograph of Buffalo is just one of the many gems featured on @buffaloproud.

 Buffalo Foodies
If you eat something delicious and don’t post about it, did you even actually eat it? This foodie account covers everything delicious in Buffalo. From sweet to savory this account covers all the 716 cravings. Another reason we love this foodie account is because they feature their follower’s pics, which is a nice touch.

This salad from The Gypsy Parlor is just one example of the delicious meals featured on @buffalofoodie.

 Lindsay - Nickel City Pretty
Not only is this an amazing and informative IG to follow but @nickelcitypretty also has a fantastic lifestyle blog. (It’s no surprise since this boss lady also started the Buffalo blogging network!) From makeup tips, to intriguing daily stories, to local art and where to get the best donuts, this account is one you definitely need to be following.

From donuts to kombucha @nickelcitypretty covers the best things in Buffalo.

 Kevin Rybczyński
This account features everything Buffalo. From animals at the Buffalo Zoo, to Bills fans covered in snow and Buffalo architecture this account definitely lives up to its handle. We love Kevin’s artistic eye and his ability to make the ordinary look extraordinary.

This picture of Luna the polar bear from The Buffalo Zoo is one of our favorites featured on @buffalony.


Welcome 716
Ok, so no shock here, right? We know it’s a little egotistical to suggest we are one of the best IGs in the area but the truth is the truth! We feature the coolest events, food and shopping in the 716 and we're known to do some pretty fun giveaways too.

Welcome 716 is definitely worth following! Don’t believe us? Check us out and see for yourself.
