In the world of social media, there's an Instagram account for just about everything. Is there a specific diet you partake in? There’s an account for that. What about a certain breed of dogs you can’t get enough of? Definitely an account for that. Perhaps you’re looking for style and design inspirations? Plenty of accounts for that. No matter the type of content you wish your feed to be filled with, Coastal Bend locals are heading to the gram and connecting with their followers left and right. Here are just a few of our favorite local accounts we think you should be following.

If you’re looking for a constant update on all things local food, we’ve got just the account for you. Katlyn Crisman heads up an Instagram profile dedicated to the Coastal Bend foodie scene. She posts solely from locally-owned restaurants and keeps her followers in the know of where to eat next, what she recommends ordering, and where her favorite spots are. @ccfoodstagram

Visit Padre Island
Living on the coast means ample opportunity to snap gorgeous beach front photos. The Padre Island Beach account regularly posts photos shared from locals and visitors alike featuring our beaches. From epic surfing shots to photos of a family-filled day of fun, this account will surely have you ready for summer and those oh-so-beloved Coastal Bend beach days. @visit_padre_island

Loren Estes
Low-waste and healthy living go hand-in-hand for local gal Loren Estes. By day, Estes works in the ER and dedicates her free time to creating recipes for healthier meals, providing low-waste tips and tricks, sharing workout regimes, and more. Her feed is filled with colorful and fresh photos that remind us all to put our health first. @loren.miche

The Indigo Leopard Home
This eclectic, bohemian North Padre Island home has caught our eye many a late-night-Instagram-scroll. Sarisa Munoz has curated her home in the most jaw-dropping way and provides endless interior design inspiration to her followers. Her entire abode is dreamy, but the clawfoot bathtub in the master bath is enough of a reason for us to follow her account. @the_indigo_leopard_home

Levi Guzman
The Coastal Bend is filled with extremely talented photographers. We look to our local photographers on a daily basis for inspiration and perspective. One of our favorites has to be Levi Guzman. Not only is his own feed filled with insanely beautiful Corpus-centric photos, but he helps countless other local businesses to help make their Instagram grids as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Locals helping local – you know we’re all about that. @dreamthorp
