FORT LAUDERDALE HIGHLIGHTS
Sometimes overshadowed by her glitzier sister a few miles down South Florida’s Atlantic coast, Fort Lauderdale has a burgeoning LGBT scene that could be said (gasp!) to overshadow Miami’s. The city has certainly grown much more sophisticated and very much queerer since it earned its reputation as a spring break destination. Certainly, its range of clothing-option gay guesthouses, ranging from ultra-flirty to ultra-chic is second to none. With its many beaches and intriguing waterways, the city’s geography is also part of its vibe (though it’s also very spread out—exploring with your own vehicle or with rented wheels is a very good idea). FL’s famed gay resorts are all clustered within a few blocks of Central Beach, which fills up with hotties on sunny days. For shopping and eating, Wilton Manors is the quintessential queer destination with a selection of eateries ranging from cheap-and-cheerful to upscale. Downtown, especially along East Las Olas Boulevard, you’ll find the city’s cultural institutions as well as a vibrant shopping district.
Which resorts are better for relaxation and which are for the more action-minded? Which weekly party-on-wheels is one of the long-running queer social events in the U.S.? When can you watch gay cowboys do some hog-tying? Where are the most private beaches? Who can sell you the most asset-enhancing swimwear? The Bump! Fort Lauderdale Travel Guide has all the LGBT answers.
