Seattle Gay and Lesbian Vacations

Seattle Gay Pride

Seattle Gay Pride

First of all, don’t worry: Seattle only has an average of 36 inches of rainfall a year -- less than New York, Chicago or Miami. Yes, it can be drizzly, but in the summertime you’ll find a sunny, robust, proud city that relishes its rich outdoors and liberal politics. The Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges are visible from the city, including Mount Rainier, a 14,410-foot-tall dormant volcano that looms large on the horizon. A trip to the top of the iconic Space Needle showcases Seattle’s wondrous views of the mountains and Puget Sound. Seattle is said to have one of the highest percentages of LGBT residents in the U.S.

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.
  • Seattle’s landmarks

    At the bottom of the Space Needle is the Frank Gehry-designed Experience Music Project museum and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame. And don’t miss the famous waterfront Pike Place Market, originally a farmers’ market, founded in 1907 and now full of produce, fish and arts and crafts.

    Strolling the neighborhoods

    Seattle is a city of neighborhoods: Check out Belltown north of downtown, full of antique shops, galleries and live music venues. Just northeast of downtown is the gay epicenter of Capitol Hill, with myriad bars near Pine and Pike streets and Broadway Market, a queer indoor mall with scores of shops and eateries. There’s even gay sunbathing at Madison Beach on the shores of nearby Lake Washington.

    LGBT Seattle

    Seattle Pride in June is one of the city’s largest annual events, and there’s also an African-American pride celebration in late July. Seattle has a huge lesbian presence, with hundreds of women flocking to the slick Girl 4 Girl parties held twice a year. There’s also the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival in October.

  • Hop on a boat

    Many straight and gay cruises use Seattle as a launching point for Alaska-bound voyages. Seattle also has a number of commuter ferries that can take you around Puget Sound.

    Consider a ski trip in winter

    Seattle is all about the surrounding mountains, and the nearby ski areas of Snoqualmie Pass, Stephens Pass and Crystal Mountain draw regional snowboarders and skiers.

    Plan early for summer

    Hotels can be sold out from June through September, when weather is generally good. If you plan to visit during the city’s annual Seafair summer festival in late July and early August, reservations are mandatory. But hotel rates here are much better between October and March, when more than 75 percent of Seattle’s annual rainfall occurs.
