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 where an ever-growing and diverse community chooses to call 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 paddling the headwaters of the Wild and Scenic Loxahatchee River or splashing around on our 47 miles of tropical beaches. After the sun sets, don your finest fashions for a night on the town in West Palm Beach or Lake Worth Beach, both of which have large LGBTQ communities and a buzzing club scene.
 
The Palm Beaches are percolating with arts and culture. Tour Henry Morrison Flagler’s Whitehall mansion at the Flagler Museum, see celebrated collections at the Boca Raton Museum of Art or check out a new exhibit set to a live DJ during Art After Dark at the Norton Museum of Art. Our calendar is filled can't-miss events, too; Palm Beach Pride is one of the largest LGBTQ celebrations in Florida, and everyone should experience the world-class sportsmanship and over-the-top tailgate parties of the International Gay Polo Tournament.
 
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); make new friends at quaint B&Bs and inns like Casa Grandview; or laze the day away in a private cabana at one of our fabulous beachfront resorts.

Come for Business, Stay for Pleasure

 For LGBTQ organizations or meeting planners, The Palm Beaches are a dynamic and inclusive destination to host your event.
