Lesbian Travel: Dinah Shore Las Vegas Debuts

While it is true that the online casino industry has overtaken the more traditional brick and mortar casino industry in terms of convenience, there are still plenty of great real world casino destinations worth travelling to, at least once in your lifetime. Of course nothing beats the speed and convenience of playing online casino games like slots, baccarat, roulette, or blackjack. But, at the same time, nothing beats the sheer excitement of booking your tickets and travelling to an exotic casino resort somewhere in the world.

The modern world of casino gambling is quite different from the old days, when mobsters ran the show and the number of quality destinations was rather more limited. Today, you can book your tickets for any number of casino resort destinations scattered throughout the world, including far flung places like New Zealand and South Africa. However, when it comes to going really big, nothing beats a trip to Las Vegas or Atlantic City in the USA, or any number of casino resorts in Macau, China.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Say what you will about Las Vegas and its former glory days, but this is still considered by many to be the premier casino destination in the world. Many new sites in the UK will have some great competitions for a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas. Even if you don’t love the idea of travelling to Vegas, visiting at least once in your life is on most bucket lists. In fact, you don’t even have to be into casino games to go there. The famous Vegas Strip is a tourist attraction in its own right and many visitors go there just to see the shows, the lights and the incredible fountains. If you are serious about gambling at a top Las Vegas casino resort, you really can’t go wrong with the Venetian. The Venetian is the largest casino resort in Las Vegas and covers a staggering 243,684 square feet, with more gaming machines, tables, restaurants and bars than virtually any other casino in Las Vegas.

There’s also a wide, open porch, where you can relax in a rocking chair.

The main house has nine guestrooms, filled with period antiques and modern amenities, each named for a different wine region, including Bordeaux and Tuscany.

The “Cottage” was originally built in 1878, and has two porches on the ground floor – a front porch with rocking chairs and a side porch with three small cafe tables. There’s also a sun deck on the 3rd floor.

Other Gay Beach Towns

Colonial Beach house

We all love Rehoboth Beach, Del. Fire Island remains a popular and iconic destination for gay beachgoers, especially from the New York area. And Provincetown continues to draw LGBT crowds for its laid-back vibe and welcoming atmosphere.
But if you’re looking for something new, there are gay-friendly beach towns off the beaten path. Here are a few within driving distance of Washington.

Colonial Beach, Va.

Chris Adcock and Ted Tait were drawn to Colonial Beach in 2011 for its reputation as a great boating town. Once docked, they discovered its gay life. For those wanting to skip the fast-paced partying and slow-moving traffic of Rehoboth Beach, Del., Tait and Adcock recommend Virginia’s second-largest beach for its quaint, small-town feel and warm acceptance.

“They’re drastic opposite ends of the spectrum in a good way,” Adcock says. “Rehoboth is the new, modern, clubby younger scene where as Colonial Beach is much more sleepy and neighborhoody. Everybody knows everybody.”

Gay Travel: Betting on Atlantic City

Author: , August 3rd, 2015

Atlantic City

It hasn’t been an easy couple of years for Atlantic City, the world-famous seaside resort area that hugs the southeastern coast of New Jersey. Headline after headline spelled D.O.O.M in bright casino lighting for the city, but just as the lights began to fade to black, Atlantic City’s resident casinos and population began to pave a new path–with or without gambling.

The death-knell came after casinos began falling like dominos. Probably the biggest shock came after Revel, a $2.4 billion casino, shut its doors. Once seen as the saving grace for the boardwalk and the area’s dying gambling culture, the casino’s ultra-high cost and delayed opening, alleged bad business decisions, and a major lack of community integration/understanding, killed the casino off within two years. This was in addition to the closing of the Showboat Casino Hotel, a 23-year-old hotel; Atlantic Club, a 34-year-old institution; Trump Plaza, a 24-old, though recently renovated property; all of which made headlines spelling the demise of the once-great vacationland. As news spread across the nation, Atlantic City gained a Detroit-like reputation (an analogy used by the city’s openly gay and openly republican mayor, Don Guardian).

In the wake of all these doors closing and the negative press attention, there are things happening now that signal the odds are looking more in favor of Atlantic City. With a new understanding of the changing travel market, the city is focusing its marketing efforts to attract younger patrons as well as LGBT visitors, emphasizing new developments in entertainment, the beach, dining, large events, and an accepting community that’s embracing Atlantic City’s new path.

Globetrotter Girls – Beach Day on the Jersey Shore

Author: , July 13th, 2015

Dany - Globetrotter Girls

It’s been months now that I went to a proper beach, and so I was happy to have a visitor in town this week – the perfect excuse for a day trip to the beach! My first instinct was to try a beach I hadn’t been to yet, and people kept recommending Jones Beach and Long Beach on Long Island, but in the end a ferry special for the Sea Streak to Sandy Hook won me over and I decided to return to the Jersey Shore.

I loved Sandy Hook: A blissful beach escape from New York City last year, and while I knew I would be limited this time around since I didn’t have bikes for all of us, I knew what to expect and that we’d have a decent beach – which is not easy to find around here, especially when you’re trying to impress someone who is used to Florida’s gorgeous beaches.

Best LGBT Beach Towns in New Jersey

Author: , May 25th, 2015

Asbury Park - Star Legder Photo

That Asbury Park is the most gay-friendly Shore town comes as no surprise to anyone. There are about a dozen bars and hotels that cater to gays and lesbians; the Empress Hotel, for example, bills itself as “Asbury Park’s LGBT friendly hotel,” with a ’50s style “that radiates sophistication.”

Sand Blast Weekend, the biggest summer gay and lesbian beach party on the East Coast, moved to Atlantic City last summer after 11 years in Asbury Park, but no matter.

Asbury Park still has the Gay Pride Festival, the state’s largest LGBT parade and festival, which will be held June 7. The Pink Prom, at the Hotel Tides on May 8, is a fundraiser for the Pride Center of New Jersey and features entertainment by “drag extraordinaire” Pissi Myles.
