At the beginning of the month, we introduced Vacation You, a guide to discovering the more relaxed, more carefree and (dare we say it?) more attractive side of you that emerges during a Massachusetts vacation.

To recap, the Vacation You website presents a live look at summer in Massachusetts, as well as a whole host of ways that you can have fun during the summer months, from seafood shacking it to being outdoorsy to lounging on a beach.

But Vacation You isn’t just about awesome summer activity ideas. Each month, one lucky Instagram user who has shared a #vacationyou photo with us will win a Massachusetts vacation!

In the first month of the sweepstakes, we’ve seen some great looks from all around the state, with some particularly spectacular beach landscapes. For you to enjoy, here are ten of our favorite sandy scenes. As always, many thanks to those who were kind enough to send them our way.

    I have to travel a lot for my business, mostly in Europe and Asia, but often in the states to cities like Las Vegas. I used to use sites like Travelocity to book my flights and lodging, but I stumbled upon the better way to find deals: go to the second level sites – those like http://hotelsmixmatch.com who compare the hundreds of different booking sites in one single search. You’ll not only see Trivago or Expedia deals, but ALL OF THEM in one place.

    I must have saved over 3,000 Euros since I started using them. I sincerely believe that using only one of the top booking sites is not necessarily the best idea.
