ITINERARY:

Known as Sin City, Vegas is home to the iconic Strip, a wealth of stage shows and some of the world's best casinos. There are a number of fun gay bars and clubs here for all types. While bars are sprinkled throughout the city there are mainly two groupings. The "fruit loop" on Paradise is basically a collection of three strip malls around gay bars, the Gipsy nightclub, a bookstore and Hamburger Mary's a down the street. The Commercial Center off Sahara is a little more rough around the edges. A new club "Krave" recently opened in the Alladin complex and is the first gay club on the strip (it has an all-girls night).

As one of the lowest, driest and hottest valleys on the planet Death Valley may not sound appealing, but it is much more beautiful than its name suggests. See its epic sand dunes and bizarrely sculpted rocks, along with flora and fauna that have adapted unique methods of survival in this harsh environment.

Mammoth Lakes is a place unlike any other. A place where the towering peaks of the Eastern Sierra frames a majestic environment of incredible beauty. Just pure High Sierra enjoyment in one of the world's most spectacular playgrounds. The area has natural hot springs which are sometimes used after skiing. Other features include lakes, a soda springs, and an obsidian dome.

Bodie is a ghost town in the Bodie Hills east of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The ghost town has been administered by California State Parks since becoming a state historic park in 1962, and receives about 200,000 visitors yearly.

Yosemite National Park lies in the heart of California. With its 'hanging' valleys, many waterfalls, cirque lakes, polished domes, moraines and U-shaped valleys, it provides an excellent overview of all kinds of granite relief fashioned by glaciation. At 600–4,000 m, a great variety of flora and fauna can also be found here. Today is your own to explore what Yosemite has to offer. Hike Half-Dome, bike the trails of the Valley, ride a horse through the trees in search of wildlife.

Napa Valley is one of the premier travel destinations in the world. Breathtaking views abound at every turn – mustard in the late winter, picturesque rolling hills planted with vineyards year-round and wineries of every stature dot the landscape. Spend your free day wine tasting, sightseeing or shopping!

The "City by the Bay" is one of the world's most panoramic, open and vibrant, attracting millions of tourists each year. Gay San Francisco is absolutely integral to that well-deserved reputation, integrated into every aspect of the city's life, from nightlife to politics to fashion to construction. And gay life is hardly limited geographically to the Castro; you'll find gay people everywhere. Gay bars, restaurants and business are sprinkled through many of the city's neighborhoods.
