Give camping a gay twist with a Labor Day Weekend in the great Georgia outdoors just a daytrip away.

By Mike Fleming

One of the great things about living in Atlanta is easy access to so many outdoor getaways and unforgettable views. Whether you’re up for the mountains, the woods, or the beach, you’re just a road trip away from your next great escape from city life.

On the last big weekend of summer if you’re not staying in town, there’s a spot just waiting for you to sit back, let your cares go, and take in all the nature you can handle.

Grand vacations – like Southern Decadence in New Orleans in our preview in this issue – are great, but our gay neighbors across the region are ready and able to help Labor Day weekenders, refresh and recharge. Bigger trips to far-flung destinations may be in your longer-term plans, but this is the weekend to hit the road for regional road trips.

Nothing will get you in the long-weekend spirit better than flying your colors with our gay neighbors across the Southeast. Here’s our quick guide to the hottest destinations for gay daytrippers and weekenders who don’t want to go far to feel like they’re a world away.

Leave work, and gas up your cars for some of the best camping and overnight stays across the Southeast.
