Targeting the Gay Traveler


LVCVA’s website has information on gaythemed nights at clubs on the Vegas Strip


Las Vegas is a top destination for gay travelers, but keeping up with the latest and hottest attractions and events geared toward this market can make a travel agent’s head spin. A great one-stop resource is the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority ’s (LVCVA) website.

While all of the hotels and resorts in Las Vegas are gay-friendly, the site has information on accommodations, special offers, nightlife, shopping and more that is very specific to the gay traveler. For instance, its in-depth coverage of Vegas nightlife will give you plenty of options to recommend to your clients—trendy club-goers will enjoy Krave, housed inside Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, the only gay nightclub on the Strip (the Krave Excitement package available at Planet Hollywood, Wynn Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas and Luxor is designed specifically with the gay traveler in mind), or you can suggest a more relaxed vibe downtown at Snick’s Place, the oldest gay bar in Vegas, which calls itself “the gay equivalent to Cheers.” The site can also direct you to nightclubs on the Strip with gay-themed nights, such as Mandalay Bay’s Elevated Tuesdays at the House of Blues Foundation Room.

But the online guide isn’t just limited to partying and nightlife. There are also sections on spas, fine dining, entertainment and shopping, as well as tips on hotels offering the best venues for commitment ceremonies.

The site also has a calendar of upcoming events, comprising general listings and gay-specific events.
