New Orleans

The mythos surrounding New Orleans is limitless. Tucked in the middle of Southern marshland, NOLA features a plethora of gay bars in the historic French Quarter, including Oz, a classic gay dance club, and the more bacchanal Rawhide -- both open 24-7 on the weekends. The city's open container policy means you can carry your drink from bar to bar, making New Orleans the perfect place for a boozy good time. Southern Decadence, the "Folsom Street Fair of the South," is held downtown every year, but if you're considering a more relaxed vacation, the city has many cute boutique hotels in historic, Antebellum homes down Canal Street. Stroll through the city's curiosity shops and you're bound to see a few fortune tellers and street performers. Stop in one of the many local eateries to taste the best backcountry crawfish in the South. Plan your next trip to gay New Orleans with Out.
