Autumn in Germany

Author: , November 4th, 2013

Autumn in Germany - Adam GroffmanAutumn in most countries is usually pretty, but when in the spa city of Baden-Baden in southwestern Germany a few weeks ago, I found it particularly beautiful. Maybe it was the bath salts and smell of luxury that permeated the air. The perfectly manicured city is small, but certainly colorful.

Visiting Boston in Autumn

Author: , October 16th, 2013

Boston SkylineSummer may signal the end of high season at New England’s beach resorts, but early autumn is the perfect time for visiting the region’s largest metropolis, Boston, along with its smaller neighbors, Cambridge and Somerville. In October, the city comes alive with students back at the area’s many colleges, the leaves turn bold shades of orange and crimson in gardens and parks around town and restaurants and bars with terraces and sidewalk seating entertain fans of alfresco dining for a few more weeks of warm weather.

Here’s a look at one of the nation’s gay-friendliest destinations, with a particular eye toward what to see during the fall months.

The handsome South End neighborhood of narrow, tree-shaded streets lined with Victorian bow-front, redbrick townhouses has steadily evolved over the years into one of the city’s favorite destinations for an afternoon stroll, whether to admire the architecture, duck into tony boutiques or seek out trendy neighborhood bistros and cafes. This upscale district is very much the heart of Boston’s gay scene, and it’s home to several long-running LGBT nightspots

Gay Travel: Las Vegas Halloween Parade Celebrates Its Third YearFor single gay travelers, Key West will be the sexiest, most spooktacular place in the nation this Halloween.

The Floridian island took the top spot in a new ranking of destinations for single travelers who identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) conducted by MissTravel.com, which is billed as the world’s largest travel-dating website. Other hot LGBT locales this Halloween were Las Vegas and New Orleans, which ranked second and third in the poll respectively.

“With Halloween around the corner, gay singles are clearly flocking elsewhere for the next big celebration,” Brandon Wade, MissTravel’s founder and CEO, said in an email statement. “Major cities like Key West and New Orleans provide the perfect atmosphere for extravagant attire and endless parades. These locations are ideal for a memorable weekend, especially since everyone is in costume.”

Ten Great Fall Beach Towns

Author: , September 9th, 2013

Beach ChairsA glorious hush falls over the country’s favorite beach towns in autumn. Crowds disappear and locals exhale. While the water’s still warm and the weather’s still mild, scoop up a cheap oceanfront cottage rental and enjoy the golden moments of the season. Here are 10 iconic U.S. beach towns where you can pedal along quiet boardwalks, kayak among fall colors, and score excellent post-Labor Day deals.

Newport, Rhode Island

A quiet post-Labor Day calm envelops Newport after the families that crowd Easton’s Beach return to the daily grind and couples arrive in town for romantic New England getaways. Just above the beach, you can walk hand-in-hand along the 3.5-mile Cliff Walk, where opulent mansions are set among mature trees turning brilliant shades. It’s not uncommon to see a cruise ship in the harbor this time of year, since Newport is a popular leaf-peeping stopover en route to Nova Scotia or Quebec. Vineyards and pastures are part of the stunning coastal landscape, and you’ll find plenty of farmers’ markets, you-pick berry farms, and venues for wine tasting. In fall, there’s hardly ever a wait for a fantastic table downtown, even in the most popular restaurants.
