The tiny hamlet of Rehoboth Beach is not only the gayest place in Delaware, but it’s one of the most popular LGBTQ+ getaways in the country. The beautiful atmosphere, friendly and welcoming locals and incredible food options make it a must for any LGBTQ+ traveler.

 

As a beach town, you’ll find Rehoboth is primarily a seasonal destination with many of the restaurants and shops only open from spring to fall. During the day you’ll find the crowds relaxing or playing volleyball down on Poodle Beach. Its location at the end of the boardwalk makes it an excellent place to start or end the day. Nearby Aqua Grill is one of the best places to eat and offers delicious fresh seafood and an outdoor patio.

 

Murph’s Beef & Ale is a popular spot for the ladies, while Blue Moon is a veritable institution among the LGBTQ+ community. Bottle & Cork offers excellent live music from both local and national acts, though it doesn’t cater to a strictly LGBTQ+ clientele.

 

During the day there’s plenty to keep you busy other than beaches and booze. Jungle Jim’s is a family-friendly amusement park that offers great fun for adults, too. It features a water park, batting cages and a mini-golf course. Funland on the boardwalk is another amusement park that has rides and a haunted mansion. If you’re into nature, be sure to visit Cape Henlopen State Park and take a stroll along its many hiking trails.

Tips for Keeping Your Shoes Fresh

Few things in life are as unappealing as smelly shoes. There’s something about the distinctive odor of stanky feet that’s almost vomit-inducing. When you’re traveling, the stench can really sneak up you. Here are some tips for keeping your shoes fresh and ready to stroll.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Under $100: El Poble-Sec, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices. El Poble-Sec is one such area that rests between the towering Montjuic park and the Old Town, making it a nice escape but still close enough to access the sights.

Staying Safe While Taking Selfies

Capturing a shot of ourselves in the most impressive, gorgeous places on earth can feel like an uncontrollable compulsion. But taking selfies can be dangerous, and even deadly without the right safety protocols in place. According to a selfies study from researchers associated with the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, more than 250 people died while taking selfies over six years. And that number only accounts for people who lost their lives to the selfie craze and doesn't account for injuries.
