California Tourism and Vacations: Best of California
California is a fertile, peaceful place where you’ll find a near-equal balance of vineyards and deserts, beaches and mountains, hippies and traditionalists. Catch an epic wave in Big Sur or swirl a glass in Napa Valley. Be dazzled by the Joshua Tree night sky or just star-gaze in Hollywood. Swish down the slopes of a Tahoe ski resort, or cruise across the Golden Gate Bridge with the top down and the music blasting. Above all, don’t forget to soak up some Golden State sunshine.

- By ThrillistThe Best LGBTQ Bars in San DiegoBars and nightclubs have always been a favorite meeting spot for queer folk, where dim lighting and free flowing alcohol helped to ease inhibitions in the dismal days before one could be out and proud. It’s no coincidence, then, that the seminal event widely regarded as the origin of LGBTQ activism, the Stonewall Riots, began in a bar. While most of San Diego’s queer nightlife still centers around Hillcrest, neighborhoods like North Park, University Heights, and beyond are emerging as havens for gay-friendly bars and clubs as well, so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t venture out of your comfort zone and try someplace new. We’ve gathered a list of our favorite spots right here to make your decision that much easier. https://www.thrillist.com/drink/san-diego/best-gay-bars-san-diego8 items
