Arrange your memories onto an online scrapbook, and then share them with your family and friends. This cherished scrapbook will be yours to keep forever as a reminder and invitation to get back to the Cape and Islands.
  2. Photos must be uploaded directly to the WeNeedaVacation.com website. Entries by email or mail will not be accepted.

    • Winners will be determined by tabulating votes on WeNeedaVacation.com.
    • Voters must provide their email address.
