Gay Travel Boston
Boston is the capital of the first state to allow gay marriage in America! The main gay areas of Boston are centered around the neighborhoods of the South End and Jamaica Plains. Since the 1980’s the gays have been gentrifying these areas and opening up shops and restaurants. You will find plenty of gay bars and clubs along Columbus Avenue and Tremont Street.
Gay Boston is absolutely drenched with history, as many of early-America’s important events took place in and around the area including the Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, and the Battle of Bunker Hill. Make time to check out 50-acre Boston Common—the country’s oldest city park. It has hosted a range of idiosyncratic historic events such as a speech by Martin Luther King Jr., public hangings in the 1800s, and even British soldiers camped there during the American Revolution. It’s also the starting location of the Freedom Trail which will take you around the city to even more historic locations. Boston is lousy with history; just try to appreciate it.
It’s also a thriving hotbed of intellectualism. There are several fantastic museums in the city and of course, Harvard University and MIT are both in Boston’s backyard as well as other institutions of higher learning such as Boston University. Try to avoid sticking out as the dullest crayon in the box by calling anyone “wicked smaht” while you’re there though as Bostonians aren’t well-known for being the friendliest of people.
Boston’s pleasant to visit any time of the year, but winter is probably not for the faint of heart. Summer is gaytravel.com's favorite season; don't forget Boston Gay Pride held in June!
