Petersburg, Florida and the surrounding region , from St. Pete Beach and artsy Gulfport up the coast to Clearwater and Dunedin. Arguably the largest and most popular gay destination on Florida's Gulf Coast, the St. Petersburg region has a good mix of gay nightspots. There's a lot going at this energetic space a short drive from Clearwater and not terribly far from Tampa.
In the artsy and hip All Saints neighborhood, the All Saints Cafe Railroad Avenue is a gay-friendly, quirky little spot that occasionally has live entertainment, and is an all-around nice venue for hanging out with friends or meeting new ones. All Saints serves Italian sodas, espresso drinks, and light food with an emphasis on vegan fare , and lots of college students spend time here before heading over for drinks at the nearby Fermentation Lounge. Also near Lake Ella and serving fresh and creative "build your own" quesadillas, stir-fry bowls, wraps, soups, and salads, 1 Fresh Stir Fry Grill North Monroe Street is a popular, reasonably priced option that welcomes all. If you're looking for some of the most creative and artfully prepared food close to downtown, consider dining at Cypress Restaurant East Tennessee Street , which specializes in Southern-inflected regional American fare. Notable options include a salad of bacon, blue cheese, and roasted Brussels sprouts; a pulled-pork double stack with corn cakes, peppered slaw, and pickled-peach barbecue sauce; and Florida shrimp and grits with country ham, shiitake mushrooms, and an orange-thyme-bourbon jus. Although Tallahassee is a generally-accepting community, its absence of gay bars and clubs might make it less appealing to some LGBTQ travelers.

This unassuming city in Florida makes the perfect gay vacation spot. Tampa truly has a fun and exciting vibe thanks to the large population of students in town attending the city's famous University. We loved Tampa. You can feel a buzz in the air as you jog on down the Tampa Riverwalk — helped by the awesome day we'd spent on the rides at the Busch Gardens amusement park.
