America's Best Cities for Gay Travel

Gay travel is on the rise, and these cities know how to make the LGBT community feel right at home.

No. 6 Providence, RI

6 of 21

This mellow New England town—whose gay former mayor, David Cicilline, now serves in Congress—ranks well with voters for being artsy, offbeat, and safe. In downtown’s multiuse space AS220, you’ll find gay bar The Stable, while a longtime favorite, Mira Bar, recently reopened in a new location on Elbow Street. The city was also voted the No. 1 base for side trips—such as Cape Cod’s Provincetown, which may be America’s most gay-friendly small town and is about two hours away.
