Valley of Fire 2nd most Instagrammed state park in US

Updated January 20, 2023 - 3:22 pm

Valley of Fire gives visitors a peek into the past through petrified trees and petroglyphs dating back more than 2,000 years. That may be one of the reasons the park is one of the most photo friendly state parks in the country.

A study done by Travel Lens found Valley of Fire to be the second-most Instagrammed state park in the country, behind only Niagara Falls in New York.

The study found that there were 285,304 posts using the hashtag #valleyoffire. Niagara Falls had 3,526,461 posts on Instagram.

Valley of Fire is open daily from sunrise to sunset. There is a $10 entrance fee for Nevada residents and $15 for non-residents.
