At the beginning of June, we unveiled Vacation You, a quick and easy visual guide to help you have a summer to remember in Massachusetts.

Since the introduction of Vacation You, we’ve seen some spectacular scenes from all around Massachusetts, as well as the latest buzz about the top spots to visit and things to do while you’re there.

Of course, the best part of Vacation You probably isn’t the activity ideas, even though those are pretty awesome; what’s even better is what Vacation You can do for you.

Each month, through August, we’ll be selecting one winner from everyone who has entered an Instagram photo in the Vacation You sweepstakes and that lucky someone will win a Massachusetts getaway!

In just a bit, we’ll tell you how to enter, if you haven’t done so already. But before we do that, we’d like to offer up 10 of our favorite Vacation You summer landscapes, which give a glimpse into all that Massachusetts has to offer.

As always, we owe a big-time THANK YOU to everyone who was generous enough to share a photo with us, and especially to those willing to let us re-share.

Now, without further ado, let’s take a look back at some picture-perfect summer days.

    Beach is a top choice but something about that first photo really grabs me, looks like farmland with mountains in the distance. Makes me think of the Northfield MA area headed towards 91…beautiful and peaceful.

      No doubt. We loved the ones of the Quabbin area in Central MA for the same reason :)

        Agreed….another beautiful area. Massachusetts is filled with them!
