There are all kinds of things for the LGBTQ traveler to do and see in Miami and Miami Beach. Here are just a few of them, including something to do each day of the week!

Start your trip at the LGBT Visitor Center located inside the historic old Miami Beach City Hall, your one-stop destination for the latest in LGBTQ information and events.

While you are on South Beach, check out the gay scene on South Beach's 12th Street Beach, marked by two large gay pride flags. If 12th street isn’t enough for you, there is also a gay section of Haulover Beach Park, part of the notorious Haulover nude beach. This ultimate tanning experience is just 20 minutes north of Sobe and is just as popular with locals as it is with tourists.

If you are still on South Beach, the Gay & Lesbian Walking Tour of Miami Beach, offered by the Miami Design Preservation League is another interesting thing to do. The tours, which start at the Art Deco Welcome Center on Ocean Drive, take place the second Saturday of each month and highlight the contributions of gays and lesbians to the history of Miami Beach.

Want more? Here's a list of popular weekly events and parties that will help you make the most of your time in Miami. Since things change pretty quickly, make sure to check out each website or call to make sure each event is still going on before heading out – or you can always just hit the next one on the list.
