There has never been a better time to plan your future travels. Even if you don’t go there, it is still fun to read about what is going on in other cities. Especially while you are sitting at home during COVID-19 self-isolation orders.
It’s always a great time to visit or revisit Washington, D.C. — or DMV as the locals call it (the District, Maryland, and Virginia). Winter ended March 1 and spring is about to arrive which, of course, means cherry blossoms. There’s so much to do — and much of it free.
If you like French food and culture, like getting a good exchange for your U.S. dollar, and love a big and fun gay village, there is no better vacation than to Montréal. The region of 4 million people is the second-largest city in Canada and is more than 375 years old.
You can’t beat a weekend in Saugatuck-Douglas in southwest Michigan. It’s the Midwest’s only gay resort area and just a short drive from Chicago, Detroit and many other cities. You can also fly into nearby Grand Rapids.
Portland, Ore. makes for a perfect vacation that combines the stunning beauty of the Pacific Northwest with great food and libations — and a vibrant, hip scene where LGBTQ life is integrated into the mainstream (albeit offbeat) culture.
Chicago is a great city to visit any time of year. Fabulous architecture, incredible museums and affordably-priced hotels (with no hidden resort fees), plus a great gayborhood (aka Boystown) mean there’s lots to do.
