Key West

Key West — A Key West vacation may be more commercialized than it used to be, but this sunny island at the end of the Florida Keys is still one of the world's most recognized vacation destinations. From the sherbet-hued architecture that merges Caribbean and New England influences to the wealth of excellent restaurants, there's no shortage of charm. But it's likely the laid-back, local sense of sun-drenched hedonism that tourists – straight and gay alike – find most contagious.

Why Go

For a Caribbean-style tropical escape in the U.S., and quirky beach-town dwellers that celebrate individuality.
