From marquee gay events each year to a vibrant queer-friendly family scene, Greater Miami & Miami Beach is a welcoming community for LGBTQ+ travelers.

Miami Beach’s South Beach district is the heart of the LGBTQ+ scene here. Start your visit at the LGBT Visitor Center for information to enrich your gay vacation. If you’re a beach lover, head to the beach between 11th and 12th streets, a popular gay hangout. In the neighborhood are two popular gay hotels, AxelBeach Miami and Hôtel Gaythering. In the evening, check out Twist a South Beach gay nightlife mainstay, and the newer Nathan's Bar. No visit to Miami Beach is complete without a stop at the beachfront Palace Bar and Restaurant, best known for its wild weekend drag brunches. Every April, visitors from all over come to experience Miami Beach Pride, a multi-day celebration of all things queer and our destination’s largest LGBTQ+ event.

Miami is home to diverse neighborhoods that will make LGBTQ+ visitors of all ages feel comfortable. At the Villian Theater in Little Haiti, you can catch the Haus of YAS comedy. Nearby Wynwood is home to art galleries and eclectic street art, including the Wynwood Walls outdoor museum and the Museum of Graffiti. The gay-owned R House Wynwood restaurant is the perfect dining destination, also known for its weekend drag brunches. On Thursday nights, don’t miss the “Double Stubble” party at Gramps bar featuring dazzling queer performances. Every summer, the neighborhood hosts an LGBTQ+ music festival known as Wynwood Pride which attracts thousands. Little Havana, a mecca for Cuban food and culture, is home to the annual Gay8 Festival, a free celebration that is considered the largest Hispanic LGBTQ+ festival in the country.

From art to entertainment and attractions, there are many exciting options for LGBTQ+ families visiting Miami.

LGBTQ+ adventure seekers have much to explore, from the Everglades and Biscayne National Park to beautiful local and state parks where you can hike, bike or paddle in lush wilderness.
