Our 'Best Nine' Instagram photos of 2017
  • Our 'Best Nine' Instagram photos of 2017
Christmas in Pittsburgh is pretty photogenic, isn't it?

I highlighted some of 2017's most liked photos of local Instagram accounts a few weeks ago when this year's 'Best Nine' photos first started popping up in everyone's feeds. In those two short weeks, though, three of our current photo intern Jake Mysliwczyk's holiday images made their way into our top spots of the entire year.

We've included our final tally of this year's nine most liked Instagram photos below, including descriptions and links to stories when applicable. We also reached a milestone in the past week: 25,000 followers! If you're not already following along, give us a follow at Instagram.com/pghcitypaper.
