10 things to do on a gay weekend in Miami

1 . Need some rest? Why not immediately enjoy the beach? Go straight to 11th &12th street and put your towel on the hot sand of the gay beach. You can not miss it, it is bounded by rainbow flags sky. It is the meeting point of the hottest boys so lie down and enjoy!

2 . If you wish to discover Miami surroundings (Orlando) or the Everglades, do not forget to rent your car before you arrive. On certain periods you will find no cars on arrival. Many companies are represented at the airport but best value is Alamo with almost new cars at very affordable rates. And if you can afford or want to treat yourself, the convertible Mustang is a must to drive and show off a bit in the city.

3 . For shopping, go to Lincoln Road and adopt the Miami style on South Beach most popular street. Guess, Armani Exchange , Superdry , H & M , Foot Locker , ... You will find many shops displaying up to 50% discounts throughout the year not to mention a nice additional discount depending on the price of EUR / USD. Europeans should definitely not miss the Apple store (free wifi) . If you're a shopaholic and Lincoln road did not quench your thirst for shopping, then try Aventura Mall, 40 minutes north of South Beach (shuttle buses). This is one of the largest shopping centers in Florida. Nobody can leave this one with empty hands. Before heading back, stop at the Cheese Cake Factory and lighten your wallet a few dollars in exchange for a delicious slice of Cheese Cake.

4 . Talking about eating… You will a lot of options on Lincoln Road including the Nexxt Cafe famous for the incredible amount of food on each plate. If you like Spanish food, take a trip on Hispaniola street a few blocks from Lincoln Road .

5 . Fancy a drink? Start your evening at the Palace, the gay bar on Ocean Drive, next to the gay beach. At 5:30 p.m. on weekends you can enjoy incredible drag shows with drag queens stopping the traffic and playing on car hoods. The Palace is located on 12th Street. It is also a nice place for lunch on the way back from the beach (free wifi)

6 . To finish the night, try Twist, the bar/gay club in Miami. Start by visiting the small wooden hut in the yard, it is quickly packed in the early evening . Very hot atmosphere, very hot gogo dancers! From 2AM, go upstairs and explore the 3 dancefloors, their different musical styles and some of the sexiest boys in Florida.

8 . You want to feel like your part of a CSI : Miami episode ? Drive an airboat? Take your car and drive approximately 1:30 to the south. You will arrive at Everglades Farm, the first farm of the Everglades. First you will watch the impressive alligators show, maybe even the alligators lunch time. Then, to the airboats !

9 . Hotels : If there was one place to chose, it would be the Z Ocean. This trendy hotel is ideally located, close to the gay beach and the gay bars. We like: the size of the rooms and their equipment, the beautiful pool, the gym. If you can afford it, you can even opt for a rooftop room with a view over the entire city and a private rooftop jacuzzi .
