Summer is coming to a close and so is the Viator Instagram ‘Summer Staycation’ photo contest. For five weeks in July and August, we challenged Viator Insiders to explore their own cities, discovering the best things to see and do. Each week, we profiled a new city on our Instagram and encouraged travelers to share their own pics for a chance to be featured, and to enter to win a $500 Viator gift card for adventures near and far!
From more than 1,000 submissions, we chose our top ten entries. Take a look!
Our winner, @getlostwithkris showed us a side of LA we hadn’t seen before, this graffitied piece of the Berlin Wall on display Wilshire Boulevard.
@janameerman got her feet wet in glacier runoff in Nairn Falls Provincial Park, British Colombia, Canada.
