The list of road trip hotspots was compiled by analysing over 47 million social media posts from across Instagram that used the hashtag “#roadtrip” between 2016 and 2017 and was sourced via Crimson Hexagon. The locations of these posts were then ranked by volume at a country level, state level and city level to show where in the world the ‘roadtrip’ hashtag was most popular.
To discover the most popular road trip routes, the most mentioned locations were analysed to map popular routes between two or more locations over five markets (USA, UK/Europe, France, Australia and Worldwide).
In order to understand the most Instagrammed hotspots and attractions, a sample of posts were taken from the most popular regions and mentions of attractions were then weighted with the volume of posts from that region to create a list of the most popular attractions to visit on a road trip.
