Along with the millennial's need to travel, there also comes the growing dependency on social media for documentation. With the year coming to a close, we're reviewing the five most heavily photographed locations that were shared on Instagram in the year 2016.

Coming in fifth place this year is Paris' trademark, The Eiffel Tower. This iconic building has flooded Instagram and other forms of social media as the backdrop of signature kiss pictures and romantic couple shots. As it is considered to be one of the most romantic views in the world, what more could you expect?

In addition to being the fifth most photographed location in the world, The Eiffel Tower also boasts being 2016's most heavily Instagrammed location outside of the United States. In a comprehensive list by Travel and Leisure, this tourist hotspot is among the 6 locations outside of the US to make the top 15.

The bright lights and flashing signs of Times Square in New York City takes its place as 2016's fourth most shared location on Instagram. Being a tourist destination in itself, the hustling and bustling city of New York has seen a steady increase of tourism in the past years.

The rise in New York tourism may also be held accountable for the number three spot in this list: Central Park. The likes of the Empire State Building and New York's famous Broadway shows could not compete to the picturesque appeal of this gorgeous Manhattan highlight.

Although Universal Studios can refer to any of the park properties around the world, this theme park powerhouse has found its way to the second slot. According to The Washington Post, Universal Parks have taken top slots as the most photographed locations in states such as California and Florida.

Taking the crown as 2016's Most Shared Location on Instagram is "The Happiest Place on Earth". Disney Properties takes the cake by being the most Instagrammed locations around the world. With princesses, castles, huge rides and constantly changing amusements, it's easy to predict that these parks are going to keep popping up on social media until the end of happily ever after.
