Scene

Ask a gay man what he wants from a holiday and he will answer: sea and sand. There’s plenty of that all year long in the 37 kms of beaches in and around Fort Lauderdale.

Great for couples

Despite its strong gay following, however, it’s much better behaved than its rude cousin South Beach in Miami. This could be because  it tends to attract couples or more mature gay men who have been coming here for decades.

Two Gay Prides

As a mark of the gay friendliness of the local government and its business community, there is not just one but two Gay Prides: Pridefest South Florida takes place in early March, while the Stonewall Summer Pride takes place in late June.

Gay Cruises

A reminder also that Fort Lauderdale is the main point of departure for many gay-only cruises heading for the Caribbean, some of them catering specifically to bears, or grizzlies.  There are many local agencies where you can book an extra week of fun and frolics in the sea, so consider maybe a longer stay to take in one of those in as well.

Florida’s top shopping

As for shopping, Fort Lauderdale has its own version of LA’s Rodeo Drive, Olas Boulevard, which is as good and stylish as anything you’ll find in its bigger neighbour, Miami.
