America's Best Cities for Gay Travel
No. 17 Philadelphia
Readers loved the City of Brotherly Love for its museums—such as the revamped Barnes Foundation—and its deep history, which includes the first documented gay-rights sit-in, in 1965. Today, Center City’s “Gayborhood” is marked with rainbow flags from Chestnut to Pine streets between 11th and Broad streets. On the corner of South 12th and Pine, you’ll find Giovanni’s Room, which boasts of being the oldest LGBT bookstore in the country.
