As we near that time of year where flannel takes over our wardrobes and basic bitches get their pumpkin spice on, we have to take full advantage of what’s left of the summer. Right? This means packing up your car, hitting the road, and heading towards a dick-heavy destination! Yeah, road trips are fun for bonding with besties and seeing the country but at the end of it all, you want to take up a juicy hookup story. So we’ve gathered some road trip destinations that’ll leave you and your sexual appetite satisfied.

Austin, TX

As more and more artsy people flock to Austin, Texas the more open its community has gotten. This means there is a vibrant LGBTQ community down south to check out. I mean, the massive amount of BBQ and live entertainment is also a plus, but if we’re being honest it’s that cowboy, same your name with a twang dick that will have you saying yee-motherfucking-haw.

New Orleans, LA

New Orleans is one of those cities that lives up to the hype and then some. For those who do not know, there is a lively LGBTQ community in this city. Rainbow flags line various areas throughout the French Quarter, and it’s there that you can take in not only the wildest voodoo spots and have an insane amount of drinks, but also find someone to make your trip to the Big Easy that much more memorable.

Miami, FL

Sticking with the southern parts of the US for a little bit longer, we have Miami. Yes, while taking a trip to Orlando would get you near an abundance of amusement parks, heading even further south would ensure you could take a few more interesting things for a ride if you catch my drift? Orlando is where you go to spend a ton on pretzels and tchotchkes, Miami is where you go when you wanna have some grown-up fun.

Portland, ME

Not everyone was built for the heat that comes from the south in the summer. Some prefer their beaches a little more chilled, and for those people, head to Portland...Maine. Yes, another famous Portland is coming up, but for now to focus on a place that puts you in one of the most picturesque places in the United States. Can you imagine seeing all that Northeast beauty and then getting plowed by a rough and tough fisherman? Live that fantasy!

Portland, OR

Switching gears just a bit, you can head west and see a cascade of mountainscapes as you enter Portland over in Oregon. There is plenty to do in this self-proclaimed weird city. Actual bookshops, more coffee than you’ll know what to do with, and a prideful community filled with very attractive human beings. Road trips here are recommended for those who love a man with beards. Beards are basically a must-have to live there. At least that’s what it looks like.

San Francisco, CA

This is one of those cities where you need to road trip to and then get yourself a bus pass. You don’t want to be in charge of navigating all those twists, turns, and hills. So once you’ve gotten yourself hooked up with a pass, take your ass to the Castro District for amazing French Toast and an abundance of potential hook-up situations.

Palm Springs, CA

If you head into Palm Springs from the east, it’s possibly one of the most beautifully serene drives you’ll ever have thanks to the massive amounts of desert. If you head in from say, Los Angeles - well you’ll have your serenity once you get out of about 10 miles from your destination. Nevertheless, Palm Springs is one of the best places to spend summer days, especially if you have a pool - and plenty of hot people in said pool.
