Our Favorite Instagram Accounts

The good news about Instagram is that virtually everyone and everything you’d want to connect with is on it by now. The bad news? Your feed is jammed. You can barely keep up with new posts while slamming down lunch, and half of them are from accounts you’ve never heard of. Maybe it’s time to switch things up with some fresh new accounts that bring you the best of Watertown! Here are some to follow right now:


  •  A Watertown newcomer, Intelligentsia Coffee tempts us every day with shots like the matcha latte snap below. A must for Watertown coffee lovers: @intellibos

  • The foodies among us can barely handle the Branch Line posts without grabbing the phone to book a table. A great mix of food and booze shots, with featured menu items mixed in. @_branchline

  • Donahue’s Bar and Grill posts heavily feature their local customers, which we think is pretty awesome, and they are great about updating the account with daily specials and events! @donahuesbarandgrill

  • For Watertown locavores Thursdays from June to October mean only one thing, and that’s the Watertown Farmers’ Market! Check out their Instagram account for gorgeous shots of local produce and prepared food, and to stay informed on market happenings all year long: @watertownmarket


  • If you love hanging on the Charles River as much as we do, check out the folks at Charles River Canoe & Kayak. Their Instagram features a mix of gorgeous waterfront shots and cool videos, plus updated info on their amazing program calendar: @paddleboston

  • Since we can’t beam ourselves to Mount Auburn Cemetery every day, we’ll settle for scrolling through their Insta feed. Beautiful in every season, for sure: @mountauburncemetery

  • Wellness Coach and Personal Trainer Matthew Fennell hosts the Wellness Walks Boston account, which features some great shots of local walking trails and outdoor exercise spots in and around the Watertown area: @wellnesswalksboston


There are some individual accounts we follow for really cool and interesting shots of everything to do with Watertown – where to eat, go for a run, find something beautiful, or just hang out. Take a look at @wjf42, @gwydir, @macyradloff, and @briannemcd – and search #watertownma to tell us who we should check out next!
