Along with neighboring St. Petersburg, this growing LGBTQ hotspot on Florida's sunny gulf coast has so much to offer. The beaches here are picture-perfect, and the area is dotted with gay-owned businesses, not to mention nightclubs. St. Pete Pride, held every June, is actually Florida's largest, with more than 200,000 visitors. This year, the event will be spread out over four weekends, providing plenty of opportunities to visit and show your colors.
