Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Vacations

Los Angeles

Your gay Los Angeles vacation

Sprawling and incomprehensible in its vastness, Los Angeles can be daunting to the first-time visitor—especially if you don’t drive. The best way to approach this popular gay and lesbian travel destination is to think of it as a series of cities adjoining one another, each with its own vibe. With Orbitz, your gay Los Angeles vacation is at your fingertips.

Why book on Orbitz?

  • Miss Richfield 1981 says it best in this video—not all travel sites are created equal. When you book on Orbitz, your travel dollars work harder. Here’s why:  

    • We’re the ONLY leading travel agency with a perfect Corporate Equality Index Score from the Human Rights Campaign, with two GLAAD Media awards to boot.
    • We’re the ONLY leading travel site with filters for hotel reviews by other LGBT travelers.
    • We feature the top gay-friendly accommodations, including Best in Stay hotels and gay resorts.
    • We’re proud sponsors of many LGBT charities and events, year after year.
  • LA gayborhoods

    Santa Monica Boulevard is the focal point of most of the area’s LGBT action—with probably the best lesbian nightlife on the West Coast. Silverlake, once seen as a gay leathery village is still home to a wide swath of LGBT hot spots.

    Eventful LA

    June’s pride event and Halloween in West Hollywood—both huge street events with lots of flair—as well as the August’s Sunset Junction street fair in Silverlake, are not to be missed. Get tickets for the Outfest in July, or Fusion, a film festival for LGBT people of color in March.

    Fun and games

    Attractions in this enormous metropolis are varied as your imagination -- shopping on Rodeo Drive, studio tours in Universal City, romantic boardwalks in Venice and the landmark Disneyland.

    Around the area

    Downtown includes great museums and the ethnic enclaves of Little Tokyo, Chinatown and the nearby Korea Town. A ferry trip to Catalina Island oozes an upscale Mediterranean vibe. LA has also upped its cultural cache with many new museums, opera houses and theaters.

  • Beware June Gloom and the Santa Anas

    Two LA-specific weather phenomena are the fog banks and overcast skies that can hang around for days in June (and sometimes from March to August), and the Santa Ana winds that can make you feel like Dorothy in Kansas.

    Join a live studio audience

    Probably the only way you’ll actually see a celebrity in LA is by seeing a TV show being taped. Tickets are free, and are sometimes handed out on Hollywood Boulevard or Universal City.

    If you don’t drive, stay in West Hollywood

    If you don’t drive or are wary of LA’s monumental traffic, and simply want to focus on the city of angels’ gay life, stay in one of WeHo’s upscale hotels. You’ll be within walking distance of gay nightlife, shops and restaurants.
