Florida travelers are being invited to show some leg with the "Sarasota in Shorts" sweepstakes, which gives away vacation packages through Dec. 5. Travelers have two chances to win round-trip travel packages, with air provided by JetBlue, either by sharing an Instagram photo that depicts their ideal vacation in shorts using the hashtag #sarasotainshorts, or by submitting their favorite style at www.sarasotainshorts.com

Visit Sarasota County will pick a winner from each method of entry who will win a pair of round-trip tickets to Sarasota from any airport served by JetBlue (Boston's Logan International is one of them); a two-night stay at Helmsley Sandcastle hotel or Hotel Indigo Sarasota; and gift certificates to local attractions that reflect the winners' favorite shorts styles, which can include leisure shorts, cultural shorts, culinary shorts and others.

Tourism folks said the shorts theme relates to the laid-back attitude of the area since people can wear them while doing just about anything the area offers, including going to the ballet and museums. For the pun-intended "shorts list" about the contest and other info about Sarasota, visit www.sarasotainshorts.com
