I want to fly away...

So, I haven't left the country for over a year, and my original plans for the summer 2010 had to be canceled, so now I'm wondering what to do for my summer break. I want to visit a country I've never been to before! Any suggestions of where I could go? It should be safe to travel there for a single, queer girl on her own...

I think you can go just about anywhere if you avoid walking outside (alone) at night/dark and keep some security money on you.

Now "anywhere"...? I don't think e. g. Iran would be a god idea. Nor India...

I have yet to be able to get out of this country. So I am limited to US suggestions only. ;)

Vancouver, Canada for the Pride Parade!
Very queer-friendly city :D

Pride week is July 30th to August 2nd, with the noon Parade downtown (West End) and Sunset Beach Pride Festival being on Sunday Aug 1st. Should be a
pinnacle event this year due to the olympics here, after half a decade of shunning it I may attend with my sister in law (who co-heads the Calgary Pride Parade). Your company would definitely sweeten the day :P

Even if your vacation cant accommodate that week, the entire summer is aflutter with activity in the queer quarter even in mid September for the Davie Day Street Festival (Davie Street is all sunshine and rainbows no matter what time of year).

It sounds like a lot of fun, but since flying to Vancouver is a tad bit expensive (though not as expensive as some other destinations), I'm not sure how easy it would be to find a really cheap hotel there during pride?
