I would look at Washington DC. Late March is about right for the Cherry Blossoms, which are very worth seeing. I believe the cherry trees blossom anywhere from mid-March to mid-April. On March 1, the National Parks Service will issue their blossom forecast. The festival is fun and very busy! DC, of course, offers a lot, including some very hot escorts.

My answer would be based on my interests.

 

I honestly can't think of one city where I'd want to spend an entire week. .. So I'd think regionally. Like the southwest.

  • The Utah national parks. The Grand Staircase of Bryce Cyn, Zion, Grand Canyon and Vegas.
  • Santa Fe & up to SW Colorado.
  • A few days in San Diego, a few in Palm Springs.
  • Maui.

 

Id say same about Boston & New England, but not in late March.

I wonder what conclusions will be drawn by 22nd Century anthropologists and social scientists who study early 21st Century social media.

Fort Lauderdale ("Where the Boys Are"). Do gays really go any place else in March? Too cold for Provincetown and a week is a long time for Key West.

 

Many of us from DC will be in FLL then.

The French aristocracy didn't see it coming either.

What U.S. city would you visit if you had an entire week to kill in late March? NYC? Miami? St Louis?Seattle?

 

Come on Shucks...how is that even a question. NYC of course. The finest men, the best food, the nicest people, the best shopping, the best theater, the best sightseeing, and word on the street is that some of the boys from the forum might be having a little dinner get together round then.;)

 

Seattle would be my second choice. Great town Seattle. Gateway to some of the most beautiful country on the planet, and the people are superb.

the greatest beauty is

Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things,

the divine beauty of the universe.

Love that, not man apart from that,

or else you will share man’s pitiful confusions,

or drown in despair when his days darken."

While all that’s true ;), the weather here in late March is likely to be overcast, drizzly, and in the 40’s to 50’s F. I’d guess it’s gray and overcast about 2/3 of the time in March. There are occasional “sunbreaks,” as we call them, where you can see the Olympics and Cascades and Mt. Rainier (“the Mountain”), etc., but if you want to do stuff outside, you should definitely bring a light rain jacket. Like DC, we have a large number of cherry trees, and they're all over the city (a former Japanese Prime Minister went to school here), but especially at the “Quad” on the University of Washington campus, and late March is typically when they’re in full bloom.

Scottsdale

 

Really, I have heard that Scottsdale and Flagstaff are both very nice -- Can you

 

enlighten us as to the attraction?

 

I have stayed in Phoenix and was not really impressed --- Plus Arizona is such a

 

conservative anti-gay state --- I hate to spend any money in those types of places -

 

Phoenix was for work . . .

I heard it’s nice too. Haven’t had a chance to visit but most of my friends enjoy visiting Scottsdale, and they’re all gay. Most usually go to Scottsdale first then drive to Las Vegas after or vice versa.

 

Honestly I don’t go south as often as my friends. I don’t do well in the heat so I prefer to stay north. But I did enjoy my stay in New Orleans

Thanks for the Reply --- I have been to both KW and PS and they are lovely small Gay Friendly Cities

Step 1. Consider your interests and how you want to spend your time. Find a city that matches.

Step 2. Check the weather averages for that city and decide if it suits you. https://www.usclimatedata.com/

 

For me this is easy --- If I am on VACATION -- then I wanna lay by the pool/beach and have the poolboy sit on my face --- I want fine and casual dining options - fun bars to meet people - and some cool local sites to see a massage and local shopping

 

If I am on a TRIP -- then there is an itinieary of things to do and see

Vegas. Pools are open, warm but not oppressively hot, spring breakers to ogle, and they have replicas of everywhere else you want to go. Paris? They have a fake Eiffel Tower. Venice? They have gondola rides. Egypt? They have a hotel shaped like a pyramid...

St Louis is a boring town. Seattle is too wet 3/4 of the year and most of the folk are meh. Miami is too pretentious. I would go for NYC. You have great food, museums, culture up the wazoo and it's a fun city in general. Or theres Chicago. All the pluses of NYC but the kindness and big heartness of the Midwest.

 

Hugs,

Greg
