We are continually impressed with not just the number but with the amazing quality of submissions we are seeing pour in for Instagram Your City. With just over 3 weeks left to add your images and perspective of our host cities to the mix, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of our favorites from across the globe, starting with “The Windy City” of Chicago! Each image is giving us a different perspective of the city, and we are loving to learn more about this veteran SMW host.

“It’s great to see Chicago’s vibrant culture and Midwest tradition come out in the #InstagramYourCity photos that folks are sharing. It’s such a unique city and the photos capture that – from the iconic skyline to the historical “L,” we’re so proud to show off our beautiful city.”Leah Bassett, SMW Chicago
