Imagine your perfect seaside vacation: brilliant blue skies, sitting poolside with cool drinks beading with condensation, live music wafting through the air as you dig your toes into quartz-white sand. Now kick it up a notch with a place that also has world-class museums, quirky neighborhoods, killer nightlife, unforgettable events, and a come-as-you-are attitude that always makes you feel right at home.
This is St. Pete/Clearwater, easily one of Florida’s most LGBT-friendly destinations. In addition to our picture-perfect beaches, our cities are full of a variety of gay-owned businesses and accommodations to suit your mood. Don’t forget that we’re also host to Florida’s largest pride celebration, the St. Pete Pride Fest in June. (In fact, local mayors have proclaimed June to be LGBT Pride Month in their respective cities!)
