Joe Williams September 11, 2015

PinkNews counts down the top 5 LGBT friendly destinations for you and your family.

Although many countries have only recently legalised same-sex marriage and adoption, there are still plenty of options for you and your family when it come to holidaying as an LGBT family.

Here, PinkNews takes a look at the top 5 places to go – but be warned, you may never want to come back!

5. Stockholm

Known as the Venice of the North thanks to its scenic waterways and leafy green parks that cover its various islands, picturesque Stockholm has to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, if not the world.

It also happens to be one of Europe’s most LGBT friendly cities – with a huge annual LGBT Pride Parade.

So if you’re looking for a trendy city break that is fun for all of the family, why not try Sweden’s stunning capital city?

4. New York City

New York City is one of the friendliest cities in the United States for family travel. The list of activities are endless: Central Park, Broadway, Times Square, top restaurants – not to mention the world-famous LGBT Pride Parade.

Whether it is shopping, theatre show, great food or family fun you are looking for, this really is the city that never sleeps (although if you do, there are also hotels on offer for families of all ages)!

3. Sydney

If you’ve got a little more time on your hands, why not opt for the stunning city of Sydney?

While most gays associate Sydney with its infamous gay night life, this Down Under destination also has plenty to offer for family travellers too, including the world-class Taronga Zoo, beautiful Bondi Beach, a hike up the steel spans of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the famous Sydney Harbour – which can be explored by ferry or private boat.

2. San Francisco

An infamously LGBT friendly city, San Francisco is world renowned for its open minded and welcoming attitude.

The local LGBT community stretches throughout the city’s Bay Area – whether in North Beach, the Haight, the Mission, or the Castro – and there’s no city that match its unique allure with cable cars, the Golden Gate Bridge, and nearby wine country.

1. Hawaii

A family to trip to beautiful Hawaii is one you’ll never forget. The island destination is scenic and sunny, with a host of activities for children.

Whether you want a holiday packed with history (pop to Pearl Harbour) or simply want to play on the beautiful beaches or splash about in the achingly blue sea, Hawaii is the arguably the best destination for LGBT families, with all of the islands offering an unforgettable LGBT-friendly experience.
