GETTING THERE: JetBlue flies nonstop from Dulles to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for $153 round trip. United, Spirit and other carriers offer rates for less than $175 from Dulles and Reagan National (prices tend to run higher in the peak winter season). Taxis into the city run about $18, but since the attractions are spread out, you're best off renting a car.
WHERE TO STAY: There are more than two dozen gay hotels and guesthouses scattered around the city. Most cater largely to men, but women are welcome as well.
