New York Times Survey Lists Minneapolis As LGBT Travel Hot Spot

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – After Minnesota became one of the first states in the Midwest to legalize same-sex marriage, it became a new travel ‘hot-spot.’

According to the New York Times, Minneapolis is now on the list of “up and coming LGBT” places to visit, especially with the Pride celebration coming up.

New York Times completed the survey after talking with gay and lesbian travel experts.

It estimates the annual economic impact of LGBT travelers to be about $70 billion a year in the United States.

Other cities on the hot spot list include Eureka Springs, Arkansas, the Big Island on Hawaii, and Pittsburgh.
