laguna_edited-4This classic photo of 1930s Laguna Beach shows a city on the precipice of becoming a Hollywood haven for stars looking for paradise. In the decades to follow, Laguna Beach became a gay mecca before becoming a mostly conservative hotbed. We recently set out to discover just how much Laguna Beach (and Orange County) has changed over the year, and sought to seek out the gay life that still thrives. Subscribe to check out our upcoming June issue to get the lowdown on California’s most exquisite beach cities.

leroyalmeridienhamburg

Le Royal Meridien Hamburg is a gay-perfect location with sophisticated modern style, professional friendly service and a lake-front view make Le Méridien Hamburg an ideal choice for visiting this dynamic city.

Rates: We found rates starting as low as €119 per night during periods of low demand, and starting as high as €372 for peak demand. Free nights for Starwood Preferred Guest members start at 10,000 points.

Location: On An der Alster, the broad lake-front promenade on the east side of the lake, Le Méridien is in St. Georg, the city’s gay neighborhood. It’s within easy walking distance to the city’s most popular gay nightlife, restaurants and cafés, and also convenient to the train station, museums, the central shopping district and Hafen City. St. Pauli, the red light district that is home to the other concentration of gay nightlife, is a 10 minutes away by taxi, or 20 to 25 minutes by public transportation.

keywestIt’s almost officially summer time and our associate editor Kenny Porpora landed in Key West to explore this beautiful gay mecca just 130 miles from the Miami coast. For the next few days, he’ll be exploring the island’s old town, famous for its charming Bohemian houses that line the main drag of Duval Street, and the off-the-beaten-path knick-knack shops, cafes, and gay bars that weave in and out, to report back some of the island’s best kept secrets.

ManAboutWorld covered Key West extensively in January 2013 and now we’re circling back to see what’s new and to find out who has the best Key Lime pie, which bar hosts the best cock contest, and who charters the best boat for a day of snorkeling in crystal blue water.

Two informative sites we like: Gay Key West and Keys Voices.

waze

Someday there’ll be an app that books your flight and hotel, rents you a car, drives you to the airport, checks you in, upgrades you, flies you safely to some exotic European coastal town, and serves you a drink (and let’s you know how much to tip!) But until that day, here are five or six apps that do ALL of those things, only separately. And they’re free! We recently set out to find the most helpful travel apps on the market, the ones that keep you organized, on time, and well-hydrated so you can focus on experiencing your travels without worrying about tickets, clunky confirmation numbers, gate changes, and the myriad of headaches that comes with the adventure. Here’s what we found:

STEP 1: BOOKING

KAYAK’s been around a while and it’s our first stop when booking a hotel or flight – it’s the most efficient aggregator we’ve found and usually lands us a solid price. (It also has surprising information about currency conversion and even has tips on food options at airports.) HOTEL TONIGHT has snagged us some great deals but we’ve also found it a handy app when we’re in a hotel emergency – the app can find you tremendous same-day  prices should you ever find yourself in a city without a place to crash.

STEP 2: PREPPING

In honor of our Editor-in-Chief, Ed Salvato, taking off this morning to Thailand, we thought this gorgeous image of the Wat Arun, the temple of dawn, by the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok, was appropriate. Look for our insider guide to Bangkok in an upcoming issue.
