​Here are the top United States destinations people are missing during the pandemic.

Instagram isn’t just about sharing the moment. It’s also about nostalgia for the past.

And among hashtags such as #ThrowbackThursday and #FlashbackFriday, you’ll find a very specific trend: the cry to #TakeMeBack!

The #TakeMeBack hashtag is a bittersweet celebration of past vacations. Nothing satisfies those wanderlust cravings quite like re-posting a forgotten holiday snap and breathing fresh digital life into a place that holds special memories.

With the travel industry currently paused around the world, these moments are more precious than ever.

SavingSpot used Instagram data to identify the destinations that travelers miss the most. To do this, the team extracted location data from Instagram posts with the #TakeMeBack hashtag and organized it by location.
