Catalina Park Inn Bed & Breakfast - Tucson Gay Bed & Breakfast

Catalina Park Inn Bed & Breakfast opened in 1994 by Mark Hall and Paul Richard who continue to welcome guests visiting Tucson in their 21st season.

Leave your car at the inn and walk or take Tucson’s new Sunlink Streetcar light rail to the many restaurants, bars, and shops of Fourth Avenue, Congress Street and University Boulevard. When you are ready to tackle the many other sights to see in Tucson and the surrounding area access is a cinch as the inn just a mile from the highway.

Each of our five guest rooms has a private bath and many amenities including free Wi-Fi, Flat panel TV, DVD players, CD/AM/FM/iPod dock stereo, plush robes and super comfortable beds with high quality linens. On the main floor there is large living room for guests, and a Butlers Pantry with a guest fridge, glassware, ice, and a DVD library.

The inn’s clientele is varied and at the full breakfast served each morning in the dining room you might meet the parents of a UofA student, a guest lecturer or straight and gay tourists from anywhere in the world. It all adds up for lively and fun breakfast conversation.

Plan to stay in Tucson for a few days if you are able. There is much to see and the area offers magnificent natural beauty. Just a few of the sights you will want to check out are: The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Sabino Canyon, The Saguaro National Monuments East and West, Mission San Xavier, Kartchner Cavers, Tombstone, Bisbee, The Pima Air and Space Museum, The Center for Creative Photography, Tohono Chul Park, Kitt Peak National Observatory, Mount Lemmon and so much more!

Gay Philadelphia – The Hornet

Author: , February 23rd, 2018

Gay Philadelphia

Philadelphia, founded in 1682, played a significant role in shaping America. This city was where the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776. From there, Philadelphia became one of the leading industrial cities during the 19th century. Today, the City of Brotherly Love continues to thrive. There’s also quite a lot to explore in gay Philadelphia, as the city has one of the nation’s most vibrant LGBTQ neighborhoods known as the Gayborhood.

There are a total of 67 national landmarks in Philadelphia. You can spend a whole week just sightseeing! The Liberty Bell, the most iconic American symbol, is a great place to start your tour. Find it at the Liberty Bell Center (oddly enough) in Independence National Historical Park.

The Betsy Ross House, several blocks away from the Liberty Bell, is a tiny museum and a landmark where the seamstress and flagmaker Betsy Ross lived when she sewed the first American flag. Take a tour of the house and relive the days of how Ross lived.

The Edgar Allan Poe National Historic Site is a must-visit place for fans of his work. This house, the only surviving residence of Poe, is in the Spring Garden neighborhood of Philadelphia. Check out different rooms while savoring Poe’s famous works like “The Raven” during the tour.

You’ll also be just a mile away from Acadia National Park, with sixty miles of car-free carriage roads, 120 miles of hiking trails, and some of the most majestic coastline in the State of Maine. The carriage roads become excellent cross-country ski trails in winter.

Abalonia Inn - Ogunquit Gay Bed & Breakfast

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Located in the heart of Ogunquit, Maine, the Abalonia Inn is a completely renovated 1840 Ogunquit farmhouse converted to a 17 room inn.

The rooms have great period detail with exposed post and beams, wide pine floors, and period detailed furniture.

Our location in Ogunquit is ideal. We are a short walk to the beach, clubs, and entertainment that only Ogunquit has to offer.

Enjoy a walk on Marginal Way, a cliff walk that goes from the center of the village to beautiful Perkins Cove, a working fishing village. You can also enjoy 3 miles of pristine beach, which Yankee Magazine just named the best in New England.

At night, you can go enjoy one of the many restaurants, or have a cocktail at the Front Porch or Maine Street dance clubs. For those of you who love the arts, visit one of Ogunquit’s many Museums, the fabulous shows at the Ogunquit Playhouse, or entertainment at both Maine Street and Admiral’s Inn lounge.

The Abalonia is rich in history beginning with its first owners, Barak Maxwell, the richest and most influential shipbuilder in Ogunquit. In 1940 it was converted to an inn.

It eventually fell in disrepair, and was brought back to life with its current owners in 2012.

Every room at the Abalonia Inn was completely gutted, taking particular care to preserve the historic nature of the inn.

Amenities include a beautiful new saline pool, firepit, wireless internet, and great common areas. Each room has a refrigerator, either a king or queen sized bed, and a large 32″ LCD/LED television. But by far, our biggest amenity is our in-town location.

If you’re looking for an historic inn with a modern flair, come stay with us at the Abalonia Inn in Ogunquit, Maine!
