Gay Los Angeles
What’s attractive about Los Angeles for most gay travelers? Boystown, USA, AKA West Hollywood! West Hollywood is such a great gay wonderland unto itself, that it deserves its own city page. However, the entertainment capital of the world has much more to offer to the gay traveler than just WeHo. Los Angeles is known for its diversity and there are a variety of communities that can fit any traveler’s interests.
The place to start out is Olvera St. Going to Olvera St. will take you on a cultural experience back to when California was governed by Mexico. LA is predominantly a Latino city, and to understand LA this would be a great start. It’s great fun walking from store to store seeing all the Mexican knick-knacks, and there is nothing more delicious than fine Mexican dining found here.
Then of course, how could you not stop at Tinsel Town when making a trip to LA? The main attractions in Hollywood are the Kodak Theater, where the Academy Awards are currently held, and Grauman’s Chinese Theater—the famous theater where celebrities imprint their hands in cement. Up and down the streets, you will see the sidewalks lined with famous stars, good eats, and swanky clubs.
