Fun This Summertime

Grand CanyonNot sure what to do this summer? The folks over at Edge Boston have some great ideas for gay summer fun:

“Summertime, summertime, sum-sum summertime…” The clouds are gone, the sun is high and the urge to escape has reached a fevered pitch (or maybe it’s just a case of sun-stroke). Most of us are well-past the “summer’s out – I’m free” school-age ecstasies, but the joys of freedom from a daily routine are no less present in adulthood when the temperature heats up.

We all need a break now and then, in order to balance the daily grind and avoid the “life sucks” doldrums. Believe me when I say; your family, friends and coworkers will thank you for doing it. Here are a few options for you to consider, some short, some long: on a boat, on a bike, one with a river running through it, one that’s a splash of a different kind, a summer pilgrimage to mecca (a gay one at least), another that’s a geek’s dream, one that requires a spanking and one with things best left behind.

Make a splash this summer doing something a little “outside the box”-or at the very least-outside your backyard pool. Join other gay and lesbian thrill-seekers for a whitewater rafting adventure through America’s greatest natural wonder, The Grand Canyon. Alyson Adventures, a leader in adventure travel for the gay community, takes care of all the details for this eight-day excursion through a 100 whitewater rapids along the entire 280-mile stretch of the Colorado River, in Grand Canyon National Park.

Gay Travel Ideas for 2012

Author: , May 31st, 2012

Gay TravelIt’s pretty clear when it comes to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered folks in our Desert that we are one third of a huge tourism movement of folks among three top LGBT travel destinations in the world – us, West Hollywood and San Diego. The magical rainbow triangle works in several ways.

First, the many folks visiting our area from around our nation and the world will typically spend time in all three destinations. Secondly, many LGBTers from each of the three places will visit the other two several times in the course of a year. Easy access, and better weather either in the Desert or on the Coast, depending on the season, allow this rainbow tourism flow to easily happen. Basically each point of the triangle is two hours or so away.

Most folks love the rocking, urban, edgy, let it all hang out there West Hollywood – aka, WEHO. Its restaurants, nightlife, hip shopping and street action are all fabulous, and very busy.
