The Palm Beaches: A Proud Tradition of Hospitality

The Palm Beaches are proud to extend a warm, friendly welcome to all who visit us. Our 39 cities and towns carry on a longstanding legacy of hospitality for all members of the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and queer community. Not only are The Palm Beaches a year-round hotspot for LGBTQ vacations, it’s a place an ever-growing and diverse community calls home. 
 
From Jupiter to Boca Raton, The Palm Beaches offer lots for LGBTQ travelers to love. Our serene beauty mixes well with culture, history, entertainment and nightlife that grows more cosmopolitan all the time. By day, work up a sweat kayaking the headwaters of the Everglades or the Wild and Scenic Loxahatchee River. After the sun sets, don your finest fashions for a night on the town in West Palm Beach or Lake Worth, which both have large LGBTQ communities and a club scene to match.
 
The Palm Beaches are percolating with arts and culture. Tour Henry Flagler’s Whitehall mansion at the Flagler Museum, see world-class collections at the Boca Raton Museum of Art or check out a new exhibit with DJs and live music at Art After Dark at the Norton Museum of Art in Palm Beach. Be sure to check our calendar for events happening during your stay. PrideFest West Palm Beach is one of the largest Florida LGBTQ community celebrations. And everyone should experience the International Gay Polo Tournament, with world-class sportsmanship and high-energy tailgating parties where the champagne is always flowing.
 
No matter where you choose to lay your head, you’ll be embraced by friendly hospitality and tropical ambiance. Stay at design-driven hotels like Eau Palm Beach (conceived by none other than Jonathan Adler) and Casa Grandview, make new friends at a quaint bed & breakfast, or laze the day away in a private cabana at one of our fabulous beachfront resorts.
