AQUA GIRL 2016 GUIDE

Ladies, start your engines!

Miami’s most anticipated Lesbian throw down – Aqua Girl - is from May 11 to May 15, 2016! This ‘girls gone wild’ circuit-party unites thousands of beautiful women in America’s sexiest city for a wild and steamy weekend of fun-in-the-sun. More than alcohol-induced shenanigans, Aqua Girl is a party with a cause. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from events benefit the Aqua Foundation for Women, a not-for-profit-foundation whose primary mission is to promote the equality, strength, health, and visibility of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender women.
 
South Beach transforms into an Aqua Girl playground with 14 culturally diverse events, including comedy shows, film presentations, and a jazz brunch in addition to the happy hours, dance parties, the sensational pool party and the co-ed beach party. As per usual, several rotating local venues downtown and on the beach will transform ordinary spaces into late night party palladiums for Aqua Girl. However, the host hotel pool party, “The Beach House,” on Saturday, is sure to prevail as the paramount “don’t miss” event.
 
Below is a mini travel guide to help you prepare for the legendary Aqua Girl. Carpe diem and thank the weather gods for some great South Beach sunshine! Note: tickets for all official events are available online at http://aquagirl.org   

The Raleigh is this year's Aqua Girl host hotel.

Libations for the Ladies 

In addition to the mega dance parties, below are a few South Beach institutions for getting’ yo’ drink on during Aqua Girl.
 
Palace Bar – South Beach’s only oceanfront gay bar is a come-as-you-are kind of place, where you can sip cocktails and people-watch in your two-piece and tank-top ANYTIME. The drag queen performances are true showstoppers.  For those wanting a chill, co-ed Sunday afternoon, come hang here! Location info on Mark's List here: Palace Bar
 
Score - Score hit South Beach in the 90s and has looked back since. The chic dance club is always packed and always fun…but mostly with guys! However, there is typically at least one Lesbian party at Score during the Aqua Girl festivities. Location info on Mark's List here: Score

Where to hang in between events

Art Deco District – Stroll Ocean Drive, Collins Avenue, and Washington Avenue and the perpendicular side streets to check out the foremost examples of the art deco design movement circa 1930s and 40s. Day or night, the beautiful and eccentric, fashionable and distasteful passing by Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive provide endless hours of entertainment. More info here: Art Deco Welcome Center
 
12th Street Gay Beach – Between 11th and 12th Streets, down the sands from Palace Bar, you can’t miss America’s hottest gay beach. Look for chiseled bodies and fake breasts!

Florida's 5 Best Clothing Optional Gay Men's Resorts

Life in the tropics is all about beating the heat. And what better way cool off than to hang out poolside without clothing? Florida has dozens of clothing optional resorts, but which ones are the best? Here's the Mark's List take on the 5 best (in no particular order).

In Key West check out New Orleans House and Island House. New Orleans House is located on Duval Street, right in the middle of all of the action. You can count on a great time poolside or in Key West's biggest Gay nightclub, Bourbon Street Pub. Island House is located on a quieter side street and offers amazing rooms, many of them opening onto the pool and patio. There's also an amazing pool side cafe serving up some of the best food (and libations) on the Island. In Fort Lauderdale, we suggest you get your Gay clothing optional groove on at The Grand Resort and Spa, which offers an upscale atmosphere with amenities that include spa services, poolside cabana bars and plenty of tanning lotion to keep your booty from burning. In Central Florida you can head out into the woods and catch some all over rays at the Sawmill Camping Resort. Sawmill offers cabins and plenty of places to park RVs or pitch tents. There's also a large heated pool, a dance hall, restaurant, several themed bars and plenty of trails to go "hiking" on.
