20+ Local Instagram Feeds To Follow Now!

As admitted Instagram junkies ourselves (see our feed here!), it's no surprise to us that the tech-savvy cult of Instagram is literally multiplying by the minute. The free, totally addictive iPhone app that allows folks to snap the vignettes of their lives, elevate them to new levels of cool thanks to artsy filters, and share them with their friends, is just a little over a year old, but has definitely tweaked the way we look at the world and communicate. Just getting on the Instagram band wagon? We’ll get you caught up in no time thanks to this list of the best of the best of local Instagram feeds. Chock-full of influencers, from those featured on these very pages of Refinery29 San Francisco (hello @onetrippass and @blaireadiebee!) to the S.F.-residing founders of the app (@mikeyk, @kevin), we’ve got a killer ready-to-add stream of visual inspiration that’ll make you love this town even more! And, if your fave Instagrammer was omitted, we’d love to hear about him or her in the comments below. We can already smell a Part II around the corner!
