OUT OF TOWN
Few European locales have more to offer lesbian and gay travelers than the remarkably forward-thinking and tolerant city of Amsterdam. Even better, a combination of consistently reasonable airfares, direct flights from myriad North American cities and palatable prices for most goods and services makes this compact, scenic city of about 750,000 residents one of the great world capitals for GLBT visitors.
It’s extremely easy to explore Amsterdam on foot, as the majority of the city’s key attractions and most diverting neighborhoods lie in the city center, within relatively short walking distance of most hotels. You can also travel by public tram or grab a taxi – fares for the latter run about 9 to 12 Euros for most trips within the City Center.
