If you’re gay and looking to get away for the holidays, chances are you’ll be visiting South Florida.
Four local cities — Wilton Manors, Fort Lauderdale, Miami Beach and Oakland Park — ranked among the most in-demand gay-friendly global cities for LGBTQ travelers during the holidays.
That’s according to the newly released Holiday LGBTQ Travel Ranking from misterb&b, a website that connects LGBTQ travelers with short-term rental apartments and private rooms. The website looked at year-round online searches for bookings and travel for the holidays and also factored in whether the city has legalized same-sex marriage and hate-crime protection laws in place. (They considered the holiday season beginning with Thanksgiving.)
Wilton Manors, which just elected an all-LGBTQ commission during the midterm elections, ranked No. 1 on the list, followed by Palm Springs (California), Fort Lauderdale, Cathedral City (California) and Miami Beach.
