Spring has certainly arrived and it now appears that the best of spring weather has, too.

What’s the best way to take advantage of it?

Well, your mileage will vary, depending on your favorite type of activity.

Whenever you need a little direction, however, there are plenty of good places to look and one of the best is on Instagram.

Since the introduction of #VisitMA, one of the hashtags that we like to use on Instagram, there have been more than 70,000 tagged with #VisitMA, and more are being added each day.

The photos show everything from museums to beaches to local Samoyeds that make everyone feel better (seriously).

Before you visit Massachusetts, or before you plan a day trip here, it’s a great resource. And during the past couple of weeks, there have been some especially gorgeous #VisitMA photos.

Without further ado, here are ten of our favorites.

As always, we owe a major thank you to everyone who shares with us, and that goes double for those who are generous enough to let us feature their work.
