    South Florida is where the sun is—and where gay travelers go. The region's lively cities, from Miami and Fort Lauderdale to Key West, attract gay partygoers of all ages, genders, and shapes. Find gay hotels and more on Expedia.

    Where to Stay

    • Miami: Gay travelers flock to South Beach! (Of course!) The Art Deco District is also popular.
    • Key West: Laidback gay hotels pepper this beach town.
    • Fort Lauderdale: Wilton Manors is the official gayborhood.

    Things to Do

    • Coral reefs and even shipwrecks lure scuba divers and snorkelers to Fort Lauderdale. (Snorkeling is also huge in Key West.)
    • From pirate museums to the Hemingway House, absorb the culture of Key West.
    • Take an Art Deco architecture tour through Miami!
    • Hit the beach! Try Miami's South Beach around 12th Street; Sebastian Beach in Fort Lauderdale; either the right side of Fort Zachary Taylor or Boca Chica Key beaches are popular with gay travelers.

    Romance

    The sea, sand, and sun make these South Florida cities ideal for romantic gay getaways. Pick Miami for its spicy nightlife, Key West for its quirky vibe, or Fort Lauderdale for its attitude-free beaches.
