Gay Key West: Tropical Gay Mecca

A long-standing queer destination as well as a historic and culturally rich town, Key West was the first American city to actively and openly recruit gay tourists. Points of interest include the former home of Ernest Hemingway, now open to the public as a museum, and many locales where Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote spent time writing. The eastern half of Duval Street is the main strip of gay nightlife, culture, and community, home of the famous Bourbon Street bar and club complex, and the PrideFest Parade each June.
