Gay pride weekend!?


We booked our flights for a stag/bachelor party April 11-15 not knowing it was pride weekend (no offence)

How big is it? Is it only for 1 day? Do they take up all of ocean dr? Or just certain blocks like 6th-12th? I am a bit nervous about navigating traffic. How dense will it be on a Saturday and Sunday?

We were looking forward to hot south beach chicks...not necessarily - glitz of the parade.

$64,000 Question - WHERE is your hotel?

Your only obstacle to non-stop straight guy fun is ONE Parade on the 14th at noon with a free concert by American Idol Adam Lambert afterward -- Most events center on 11/12th and Ocean Drive.

Why not book an activity that day that takes your manly men away from the crowds Sunday on Ocean Drive? There is a deep sea fishing trip you could do for 4 hours at only $25 a guy (and lots of other deals) here:


After you return, hang out at Monty's at the Marina for cheap drinks and raw bar and a public swimming pool too!

Otherwise - just hit one of the GREAT South Beach pool parties listed here (lots of boobage!)

My girlfriends and I made the same mistake but coming from Toronto where we have our own pride parade im sure there will still be lots of straight parties going on. We arent too worried. South Beach has tons going on
