Hippie Hollow, Austin
, Texas
More than a hundred swimming holes, a gay-adored beach, and impressive climbing crags beckon from the star of Texas. Hot bodies decorate the shores at gay-popular Hippie Hollow on Lake Travis, a short drive off Interstate 35. The gay section is about 15 minutes walk to the left from the parking lot. For an extraordinary day at the beach, make for annual Splash Days, clothing-optional lakeside parties on the rocky limestone shores of the lake.

Hanlan's Point, Toronto
Make the most of a beautiful summer day with a trip to the Toronto Islands, home of the gay friendly Hanlan's Point clothing-optional beach, bike paths, and a small amusement park. It's a good place to hang out in a heat wave, with temperatures a few degrees cooler than downtown. The round-trip ferry ride provides the best view of the city's waterfront skyline. The beach has a lifeguard during the summer season. Head for the far end to find gay and lesbian Torontonians catching the rays.
