San Francisco, California

In March, San Francisco is just on the cusp of the season change- or California’s version of it at least! With mild winter air and beautiful sunny skies, this city by the Bay is an especially great winter destination for the LGBT traveler. This city is booming with incredible restaurants and eateries so you can warm yourselves up from the inside out. There are also a number of great arts and film festivals happening in the city to check out.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

For Lauderdale has notoriously beautiful weather, especially when the rest of the country is bundled up for winter. March is the best time to visit town, with low temperatures only in the 60’s. Rainy season in Florida doesn’t begin until the beginning of summer, so winter is actually an excellent time to travel to this Southeastern city. Between Fort Lauderdale and Miami which is not too far away, there is plenty to do in Florida this time of year!

Portland, Oregon

Portland is a beautiful city all year round, but is especially nice as a coastal destination with relatively mild winters. This quirky urban playground has lots to offer even when the weather is a bit on the gloomy side. There is a lot of great art and creativity going on in this innovative town, with tons of incredible thinkers wracking their brains in the well-known bookshops and cafes around the city.

Sydney, Australia

Australia is known for its incredible summer-time surfing and beautifully warm weather during this time of year. Because of its location in the Southern hemisphere, March falls during Australia’s summer and is a great place to go to get away from the cold! To get down to the business of fabulous, check out Glamazon featuring Ru Paul happening at the beginning of the month in Sydney.

Oh Girl! Sydney's featured event is for all Ru Paul fans out there!

 

Now that we have filled your heads with all sorts of ideas regarding your Dirty Thirty travel here are some tips to make those travels even more enjoyable...


Snow Driving

When driving on snowy mountain roads, make sure to have snow chains on hand and ready to be installed – in many areas they are required. Also, cold weather deflates tires so make sure to fill them up before hitting the road. It is helpful to have rest-stops and alternative hotels planned out in case of road closures or weather-delays

Hydration

Even if the weather is cold, dehydration is absolutely something to be aware of and avoid, especially while engaging in winter sports. Be sure to get plenty of water in between ski and snowboarding runs, or even while being out and about in your winter town of choice!

Fly Non-Stop

Because of unexpected weather, plane flights can be delayed for pretty long amounts of time. Because of this, having multiple flights to get to your vacation destination can be problematic. In order to avoid missing your connecting flight, try to book direct flights or leave a good 2-3 hours as a cushion of time for layovers.
