Miami: A Gay Winter Wonderland

Published Date Author: , December 31st, 2010

Gay Miami TravelMy trip timing wasn’t so good. When I arrived in Miami two weeks ago, Florida was in the middle of a cold snap. The famed Miami Beach was deserted except for a few surfers in wetsuits and tourists posing for pictures in winter clothes. It had gotten down to 34 degrees that morning. It wasn’t predicted to go above 53 degrees all day and was going to be another night in the 30s. San Francisco’s low temperature that day was the same as Miami’s high temperature.

But the typical year-round summer weather in Miami returned two days later. The “crisis” was over. Summer was back. The beaches were full of people soaking in the Florida sunshine in the middle of December.

Barring a rare cold snap, Miami is a great escape from the Bay Area cold and rain. It is also a very gay welcoming getaway. And the gayest thing to happen in Miami in a while is happening this week. A gay hotel, Lords South Beach, is scheduled to have its official grand opening, following a soft opening that began last month. It is the only gay hotel in the greater Miami area and is already generating a lot of buzz.
