September Travels to Heal Your Post Summer Blues…Also, Wine.

Summer’s over, but the fun doesn’t have to be! In fact, LGBTQ+ travelers should consider saving their big trip for a September getaway. Places like Tuscany, Bali, and Malta have more comfortable temps, exciting events, and less crowds.

September in Tuscany is the time for the annual wine harvest. Gay travelers have loved the vineyard scene and breathtaking countryside views for ages. Explore charming medieval towns and the rolling hills. Plus, Florence (and its incredible sightseeing) is nearby once you are craving city life again.

The island nation of Malta hosts its annual Pride parade in September. The country has a rich history and is home to a variety of ancient ruins and landmarks, including the Megalithic Temples of Malta (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).

Bali, Indonesia is ideal in September, and is especially great for those seeking relaxation, natural beauty, and spiritual experiences. When travelers go in September they skip the crowds of peak season but still get the gorgeous weather. Bali has beaches, rice terraces, and waterfalls plus a variety of gay-friendly bars, clubs, and events.
