Bay Fest - Sarnia

Next year all of you should go to this. You cannot all sleep on my floor, cuz Nick will be mad at me. But if I like you enough I will be willing to take that particular bullet from Nick.

I wanted to offer a suggestion, Asheville, NC.. Very artsy and gay friendly, BEAUTIFUL location, national parks, Biltmore Estates, wine tasting, hiking, horse back riding.. Not too hot in summer, see the colors in the fall, ski in the winter and watch the mountains bloom in spring.. There are also lots of art stores, a mall, and lots of coffee shops.

I hope to be moving there in the next year or so. I know of a couple of gay friendly or owned B&B's around there too.

Hope that helps

-Tony

As others have said, the Biltmore House is a must see. The home and grounds are unbelievable, especially when the gardens are in bloom or during the holiday season.

If you are visiting during the summer months, there are many parks and outdoor attractions in the area. Lots of rafting and tubing to enjoy, camping and hiking, or just grilling out at a park on the river...

Wandering downtown is a definite must do. There are so many different shops, cafes, galleries, a fine arts theatre, small museums, nightlife, etc. If you enjoy music The Orange Peel is fabulous, plus there are always street musicians and performers.



There's so much culture in this area, it seems as though there is always something going on, something to do.... It's also a very diverse, "accepting" area. It's the kind of place where all types of folks can stroll the sidewalks and "blend" together in harmony, no matter their sexual orientation, religion, color, creed, etc... It's one of my favorite things about this city. Such a wonderful atmosphere and such wonderful people...

Suavies Island

http://sauvieisland.org/





Suavies Island is a beautiful place to visit:
Places to take a walk and enjoy nature,
watch birds, play on the beach, watch
ships coming into port or in the fall, to visit
the pumpkin patch or even during summer and fall
season, to buy organic farm fresh produce!


It's a beautiful, peaceful, sanctuary/reserve
that's reasonably close in our PNW (PDX) urban landscape.

If anyone is headed to Seattle or the Olympic Peninsula for vacation this year let me know! I have a few suggestions.

homoe 04-16-2017 06:48 PM

If anyone is going to be visiting the state of Wisconsin this summer, especially around the Milwaukee area, I still remember a few events and places that might be worth checking out! Also some places for sure in the Milwaukee area you'll want to avoid as well!

Vacation
 
I can help anyone planning to visit Texas both coastal and inland.

Funny but I know Maine pretty well too. :)

Also, I have traveled all over Italy so I could offer some insight.

I too have knowledge of Wisconsin but things may have changed since the stone age. :)

Skamania Lodge
 
Skamania Lodge is located in the Columbia Gorge, in Stevenson, Washington, near the Bridge of the Gods.

https://snoqualmietksummit2012.files...lodge-view.jpg

It's beautiful there. It is a top resort destination, offers top notch hotel service and the food service is impeccable. The surrounding area is breathtakingly gorgeous. I've gone to retreats at this location and experienced wonderful service, as well as went on horse riding expeditions. It's very lovely there.

Here's a link to their website, for anyone interested in visiting this gorgeous scenic area:
