Everything is bigger in Texas, or at least that’s what they say. With one of the largest gay populations in the United States, Dallas is an amazingly diverse destination full of culture, attractions, restaurants, and nightlife. The southern hospitality of Dallas is what keeps gays and lesbians coming back for more, or maybe it’s because big hair is really cool and accepted here. After all, Lady Gaga made an appearance at the Round-Up Saloon after her concert, so if it’s good for Gaga… With a sassy buffet of TAG approved hotels, visitors to the Big D can find whatever they need in the Oak Lawn gayborhood which is host to many bars, restaurants, and shops. You can also take in some culture in the Arts District, butch it up at a Texas Rangers or Dallas Cowboys game, or even relax at one of the many spas in the city. Whatever tickles your fancy, whether it’s a hunky cowboy, a day at the spa or burning up the credit cards at one of the many shopping malls, the Big D has it all.
One of the best things about Seattle is its casual urban vibe. If you’re here for a day, a week or a month, you’ll find plenty of things to do in the the Emerald City. After you check-in to your TAG approved hotel, start your day off with breakfast at 13 coins, then head to the Space Needle for some amazing views of the city from the observation deck. A definite must see are all those men tossing around fish (no sassy comments, please!) down at Pike Place Market. After you’re done getting all googly-eyed at the fish-tossing muscle hunks, grab a bunch of flowers to brighten up your room, splurge on a chocolate eclair at La Panier and mingle with the locals. Of course, you can’t forget about the Seattle nightlife! Take a taxi to Capitol Hill and get in touch with your inner foodie at La Spiga or Boom Noodle then it’s time to really fire up the evening at one of the many bars and clubs such as Madison Pub or The Cuff Complex. In any event, the Emerald City has a friendly, hip and diverse culture that makes everyone feel welcome.
