Gay Los Angeles Getaways

Published Date Author: , January 29th, 2015

Las Vegas - Caesar's PalaceAnd here’s a history question for you: Why did the movie industry settle in Los Angeles? If you’ve spent any time in and around the City of Angels, you probably know the answer.

Weather is the first reason. (Obviously.) But more important was the fact that every conceivable locale could be driven to in two hours or less. Whether a required snow, a jungle, a farm, the beach, or something that resembled small-town America — it was all nearby.

Which is why a trip to gay Los Angeles provides so many opportunities for day trips and weekend getaways. Here are some of our favorites. Not all are two hours or less, but you’re probably not making a movie, so just go and enjoy.

Paso Robles

Who needs Napa Valley when there’s a wine-lover’s paradise on California’s Central Coast that’s only four hours from L.A.? This quaint and friendly place with a small-town vibe (population 30,000) has over 200 wineries that are nestled amid rolling hills, hot springs, and ranches with real-life cowboys. Tour a vineyard or an olive orchard, then sample a few of the more than 150 local cheeses. Or for a more upscale adventure, book a private wine tour with a certified Sommelier. It’ll set you back some coin, but making your friends back home envious is priceless. As an added bonus, Paso is close to Hearst Castle and the San Miguel Mission, both of which are worth the journey.
