The Loden Hotel, Vancouver, Canada

by Gaycation Magazine

Vancouver, British Columbia, is among the world’s most beautiful cities. Nestled between the dramatic Coastal Rocky Mountain range and along the shores of the Strait of Georgia, Vancouver’s breathtaking blend of snow-capped mountains and ocean beaches gives the city a flavor all of its own. Vancouver’s west coast location ensures a year round mild oceanic climate. While the winters occasionally see snow, the  summers are perfect for a variety of outdoor activities.

The gay village along Davie Street is one of Canada’s largest and most exciting LGBT experiences. For many years this community has hosted numerous gay residents and became a major tourist attraction more than two decades ago. The large selection of bars, cafes, restaurants, and boutiques are mostly gay-owned and operated ensuring a warm welcome for all LGBT tourists. This neighborhood is also the host for the gay Pride Parade which is recognized as the second largest in Canada.
