    Does anyone know of a good place to vacation during the week of Christmas and New Years? Ideally, it would be not too expense, some availability to gay nightlife and warm. Miami and Fort Lauderdale excluded.

    Warm is the catch, your US options aren't good. Did you cross Key West off your list, too? It has gay guest houses, but their most expensive rates during those dates, even higher special event rates for New Years Eve.

    You might get lucky with New Orleans weather, but can also get cold in late December. Ask rnch who lives there. South Texas is cool to mild (chilly mornings), but not much gay life in San Antonio, Austin is about it. And then of course there's southern California.

    Beyond that you're into the Caribbean at Christmas, with your cost going way up to include transportation unless you get a special deal, many places already booked. We haven't had recent experience there, so I'll let the other guys here comment on which islands are currently gay friendly and which unfriendly.

    New Orleans! Hotels are cheap that week because it's not what most people think of as a Christmasy destination. Gay nightlife is flagrantly available. The food is always good, the Quarter looks great with Christmas decorations, and you don't need a car.
    The only drawback is the humidity - if it's cool it can get clammy.

    I would say either San Diego or Palm Springs good gay nightlife in both places.

    Looks like you excluded your best two options.

    Look into Hawaii. Palm Springs is great but if you're looking for warm this isn't it, during the winter the desert will be right around freezing or below.

    I say join the guy above me to Puerto Vallarta (if he was serious).

    But try Italy, New York, some where up North near the cold and mountains, do some hiking, sight seeing, just get out and explore. I always said when I retire I would like to pack my things and live somewhere for a few months in a different country just because.

    Ohh.. I totally just saw the thread heading and started typing. I just read your post.

    Well scratch that .. Florida it is icon_lol.gif

    or Canada .. I noticed there are tons of hot gay guys on this website and they're all from Canada.

    Cali is another big "night life" spot too.

    Palm Springs. Good weather, gay friendly and lots of guys to get to know.
