5 Black Women Travel Accounts You Need to Follow on Instagram

A lot of my travel inspiration comes from what I discover on Instagram. Whether I'm looking for my next staycation or something off-the-beaten-path, Instagram content is a surefire way to see who's traveling where and what their experience is like.

As a black woman who often travels solo, it helps to see people who look like me at a travel destination so that I can gauge what my experience might be like. I've also had great experiences when it comes to reaching out to these accounts to ask for advice.

Here are 5 travel accounts run by black women that you should be following on Instagram.
