What are the best Instagram accounts to follow in Dayton?

We love seeing folks in Dayton sharing their experiences in our Instagram feed.

Our local Instagram scene is full of creative businesses, volunteer organizations and unique individuals who give us a glimpse into their lives. It also gives us a fresh perspective on Dayton.

Long story short—Dayton has a big presence on Instagram.

Here, we attempted to round up some of our favorite accounts we think are worth a follow. While our criteria isn't scientific, we focused our attention on feeds that are consistently creative and inspirational. Another guiding principle: aesthetic appeal (come on—it is Instagram, after all).

But the list doesn't stop here. We want to know what you think. Drop us a line about your favorite Dayton Instagram accounts—people or businesses—and why you love following them, and we may add them to the list.
