If you're a lesbian who didn't get her Pride on this summer -- or even if you did and want more -- then consider the 25th annual Womenfest in Key West, September 6-11 hosted by The Key West Business Guild. This Sapphic paradise welcomes thousands of women and presents a diverse schedule of activities over six days, including the arts, music, sports, sightseeing tours, and girl-watching by the pool.
"One of the things that is so exciting about Womenfest is the broad demographics that it attracts... just about anybody can find just the right way to spend their days ... and their nights," states KWBG Executive Director, Rebecca Tomlinson.
There is definitely a party vibe—bikini contests, try-not-to-spill-your-drink-in-the-clothing-optional-pool kind of activities. Southernmost Hotel, Alexander's Guesthouse, Aqua Nightclub and Pearl's Key West are some places to find your inner hedonist.
Several activities are free or offered at a discounted cost. Tomlinson confirms that "many of the pool parties and dance parties are free...parties that charge a cover keep their prices low... you could just hang out by the pool...and go home feeling like you had a tropical vacation."
