On the northeastern edge of downtown, the Mass Ave Arts District is not only the heart of Indianapolis's gay and lesbian community but one of six distinctive, revitalized neighborhoods that will eventually be linked together via the Indianapolis Cultural Trail.

Soldiers and Sailors Monument Indianapolis - Monument Circle Indianapolis - gay Indianapolis travel - photos of downtown Indianapolis Soldiers Sailors
The most distinctive structure in downtown Indianapolis, the 284-foot-tall Soldiers and Sailors Monument presides over Monument Circle - from its base you can see the Indiana State Capitol down West Market Street, and several prominent hotels, cultural and arts venues, and shopping centers lie within a short walk of this stunning monument. It was designed by Bruno Schmitz and completed in 1901. Page 12.

Traders Point Creamery - Traders Point Cheese - Traders Point Indianapolis - Indiana cheese producers - Restaurant at Traders Point Zionville photos
Indiana hasn't exactly cornerned the market on acclaimed artisan cheeses over the years, but Traders Point Creamery, in the semi-suburban town of Zionville about 15 miles northwest Indianapolis, is changing all that. If you're a fan of handcrafted cheese, yogurt, ice cream, and unbelievably fresh milk, it's definitely worth making the trip up here. You can tour the farm (either on your own, or on a guided tour on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - check for hours), or dine in the great restaurant. Page 2.

The Albuquerque Social Club is a private club for gay and lesbians, and it's become the funky Nob Hill neighborhood's - and one of the city's - most popular gay venues. You must be a member to enter, but all are welcome (as long as they have a valid photo ID). The cost is $10 for an annual membership if you live in-state, and $5 if you live out of state. This had been mostly a locals' hangout, but it's enjoyed a resurgence of late and now draws sizable crowds and has a friendly staff.

Cash Inn Country Phoenix - Cash Inn Country Lesbian Bar - Cash Inn Country Latin Music - Phoenix Women's Bars - Phoenix Gay Country Bars - Cash Inn

Line-dancing and two-stepping are a big part of the fun, but there's also darts and pool, free Wi-Fi, and an expansive patio out back. If you're not so big on cocktails, just drop in and hang out in the coffee bar. It's a very friendly place, with an especially nice bunch of folks working behind the bar. Page 15.

Popular for dancing on weekends, IBT's also has some popular weekly parties, such as Karaoke on the Patio parties on Sundays, Wednesday drag shows, and occasional guest DJs. The crowd is a mix of women and men, with plenty of college. Page 33.

A convivial video bar that's somewhere between a mellow neighborhood bar and a lively gay happy hour haunt, Ice Pics is a reliable bet for chatting and hanging out with friends, or for meeting locals. The crowd is generally low-keyed and friendly, and the two-for-one happy hours (daily, from 4 pm until 8 pm) are a hit. Bigger crowds pile in for certain thematic events, like weekly show-tunes parties and comedy nights. Page 19.

I received a very nice note (part of it reprinted below) not long ago from the owner of the Mine Shaft Tavern in the tiny village of Madrid, New Mexico, letting me know just how gay-friendly and supportive of the northern New Mexico GLBT community they are. In fact, this rambling, friendly, and totally cool tavern and restaurant is lesbian-owned and operated, and it's a cherished landmark along the historic and scenic Turquoise Trail, between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

There's also a pool table. Page 34.

Part of the endearingly strange grab bag of gay and not-so-gay bars, sex clubs, Asian restaurants, and prosaic offices that inhabit the Commercial Center, an expansive, drab strip mall less than a mile east of the north end of the Strip, Badlands Saloon is a friendly cowboy-themed neighborhood joint catering mostly to guys in their 30s, 40s, and 50s. Crowd-size varies greatly - it can be quiet in here on weekdays, but happy hour and weekend late-night usually sees decent numbers. Page 8.

The small, artsy northern New Mexico town of Taos has long had a popular following with gays and lesbians, but the town has relatively little going in the way of nightlife, and certainly no specific gay bars. That being said, the atmospheric, high-ceilinged lobby lounge at the historic Taos Inn, called the Adobe Bar, is one of the friendliest and coolest hangouts in town, and it's absolutely GLBT-welcoming, as is the excellent adjacent restaurant, Doc Martin's.

Hawks, pictured here, is beside the Vegas LGBT Center along the same strip of buildings that includes the Badlands Saloon gay bar. It's all part of the Commercial Center, a seedy and rather downcast shopping center a couple of miles east of where the Strip bumps into downtown. Page 9.

There aren't many hotels in America as historically intriguing yet oddly contemporary as downtown Tucson's vibrant, quirky, and quite affordable Hotel Congress.

The 1919 hotel has 40 basic, individually decorated rooms. Page 31.

Note: MoDiggity's has closed. One of two lesbian bars in Salt Lake City (the other being Paper Moon Nightclub), MoDiggity's is in a drab strip mall on the south side of the city, about a 10-minute drive southwest of the hip Sugar House neighborhood. This no-attitude, easygoing women's sports bar airs games (and movies) on TV screens, and has dancing on weekends, karaoke on Wednesdays, and Texas Hold 'Em poker nights on Tuesdays. Page 18.

Radio City Lounge Salt Lake City - Oldest Gay Bars Utah - Radio City SLC - Radio City Lounge Closed 2009 -
Although downtown Salt Lake's Radio City Lounge closed in August 2009, it's worth commemorating this venerable, if quirky, gay neighborhood bar that opened its doors in 1948. It had been known as the oldest gay bar west of the Mississippi at the time of its sad demise. Page 16.

Not to be confused with the defunct Trapp Door, which is just around the corner, The Trapp is what remains of the formerly significant gay scene that used to thrive in Salt Lake City's Warehouse District, west of downtown. This rollicking and friendly neighborhood hangout has stood the test of time, as several others have closed over the years, and the city's gay nightlife scene has spread geographically in all directions. The Trapp is known for its juke box of country-western standards. Page 13.

As is common in SLC, Try-Angles functions as a private club (guests from outside the area can visit by paying a fee for a temporary membership). Page 5.

Trapp Door Salt Lake City - Trapp Door Gay Bar - Trapp Door Closed 2009
NOTE: The Trapp Door closed in 2009. Salt Lake City only has a handful of gay bars, but what it lacks in sheer number it makes up for in energy and friendliness. Arguably the hottest hangout among the bunch is the Trapp Door (615 West 100 South, 801-533-0173), a decent-size disco with an also sizable side patio in the city's Warehouse District, just west of downtown.
