LGBTQ+ Travel Guide

San Diego's LGBTQ+ friendly community welcomes all visitors throughout the county

San Diego Rocks

Sunny San Diego not only describes the weather, but the disposition of the locals. And no community embodies this more than the LGBTQ+ scene. One of the top LGBTQ+ destinations in the country, San Diego welcomes people of all stripes and types with open arms. The community meets the world with energy, enthusiasm, and true joy de vivre. Hillcrest is the heart of the action, where there is always something fun to see and do. From the CityFest Street Fair to Hillcrest Mardi Gras to the grandest party of them all—Pride—Hillcrest hums with activity all year. Though San Diego doesn’t see much rain, rainbows are aplenty. The LGBTQ+ friendliness stretches wide beyond Hillcrest. Neighborhoods from University Heights to South Park to Ocean Beach house queer-owned businesses, host LGBTQ events, and welcome everyone with warmth.
