The southernmost point in the continental United States, Key West has been attracting gay and lesbian travelers for decades. Our adventure begins when we hit the open seas with Captain Karen as she takes us on her all-women Venus Cruise. Back on shore, we wander the beaches of Key West to find out where the queer locals soak up the sun. Hit new heights as we parasail over the Gulf of Mexico and revel in the zaniness of Fantasy Fest, the 10-day festival that has been going strong for 24 years. Every February, thousands of women from all over the world head to Key West to participate in the Kelly McGillis Flag Football Tournament. Need a place to stay? Key West is famous for its beautiful and hospitable guesthouses, catering to all tastes and desires. Intriguing local characters, funky watering holes and the laid back lifestyle make Key West a must for any queer traveler.
