Naples/Marco island

Naples: The crown jewel of Southwest Florida

Naples is known for its great shopping and dining on Fifth Avenue, excellent fishing and world-class golf courses, not necessarily for being a gay hotspot. But that doesn’t mean that gay bars and gay-friendly accommodations can’t be found, not to mention an abundance of LGBT local residents. With more than a hint of cosmopolitanism, Naples attracts its healthy dose of gay and lesbian travelers every beach season too.

Fort Myers: Quiet and Quaint

Fort Myers’s gay scene might not be as loud as in Florida’s larger cities, but it’s definitely there! Neighborhood bars are casual and tend to cater to a friendly crowd. And expect to get your game on, as some several of the bars now offer space for gaming tournaments. Fort Myers is just a short drive away from Port Charlotte, if you’re looking for more local fun.
