Our Gay Couple Travel Guide USA, North America

Gay Couple Travel Guide USA: The United States of America, still known as the land of boundless opportunities, is a varied destination for outdoor fans exploring the sea, mountains, and diverse cultural attractions in its 50 states on the North American continent. Expanding from the Pacific Ocean on the west to the Atlantic Ocean on the east from Canada in the north to Mexico in the south, the “States” rank among the biggest countries in the world.  After becoming independent of the United Kingdom in 1776, the American people celebrate their “Independence Day” every year on July 4th. But what is important to know for your gay travels to the United States of America? Although the US is considered to be a gay-friendly destination announcing marriage equality in 2015, there still a lot of places where same-sex couples should pay attention where they walk hand-in-hand. We have not had any negative experience traveling as openly gay couple in the US until now.

What did we see so far? Our first trip brought us via Atlanta to Florida where we spent some wonderful days in Orlando’s Disney Parks and Universal Studios. In the same year, we explored the South Western part of the USA starting with California from San Francisco where we attended the Castro Street Fair, Pacific Highway No 1, Los Angeles, Anaheim followed by Nevada with Las Vegas and its Extraterrestrial Highway, the Grand Canyon North Rim in Arizona and Zion National Park in Utah. Our way back lead us to California’s Yosemite National Park including a visit to the Ghost Town Bodie. But this is meant to be just the beginning of our American explorations.

If you have any questions about your plans traveling to the USA, follow us and send us an email or drop us a line on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram. See you around the world and the next time in the States!

Plan your Trip to the United States of America with Couple of Men:

Gay Couple Travel Guide USA: There are so many more places to visit in America. Highest on our list is undoubtedly the North Western part of the country with Oregon, Seattle, and Portland. But you can be sure about, that the Disney Parks are super high on our bucket list again and again! As almost every bigger city in the US has their own annual Gay Pride, we are super excited when we will be able to attend the next Gay Pride in the United States of America, maybe in New York?

Anyways, some tips for the planning: apply for your ESTA form early enough (for all travelers coming from a Visa Waiver Program country), check the restrictions for an international drivers license (rules differ from state to state), bring your adapter plug since you need one to connect European/ Asian plugs to the electricity grid, check the validity of your passport and do not forget the pin code of your credit card. Last but not least: do not forget to drop us a line which part of the country, which city or which event we definitely should check out on our blog!

And now, enjoy your preparations for a trip to the United States of America and see as well as experience the best of the USA through a couple of men‘s eyes with our Gay Couple Travel Guide USA blog articles.
