Pensacola Beach Memorial Day Weekend 2016

memorialdaypensacolabeachemeraldcitypensacolaMemorial Weekend is coming up starting May 26th of this year in Pensacola. We have been going to this event annually and of course it’s in our Top 5 events of the year not to miss. The reason as you can see in past posts on Gay Memorial Day Weekend that thousands of people a re camping on the beach and having the time of their life.

You can also go to the man made city of Las Vegas for Matinee but why would you want to do that when more people are in Pensacola and it’s mostly hot southern boys. Did we mention there is a real beach? Not some man made concrete pool where you have to order bottle service for a place to lay in the sun or even sit down. With the Pensacola Beach the gays take over during this weekend you don’t have to pay anyone to put up a tent and can goto temporary tent venue to tent venue partying it up from sunrise to sunrise. You will also want to make room for the DJ’s playing at Emerald City which is the popular nightclub in Downtown Pensacola.

Where to Stay?
We recommend either setting up a tent on the private beach set up for this weekend across from the Portofino or staying at the Portofino. If you have a tent you may want to consider a hotel as well because you will want a place to regroup each night. There are facilities for bathrooms and showers along the beach but to each his own.

The Portofino Resort is where you will find many gay parties and you can go room to room or their main pool area where they normally have a huge Pool Party event setup each year for this weekend. It’s not an easy task getting a room at the Portofino because you basically have to plan months in advance and you have to book with a 4 day minimum and have two rooms or more. They are more expensive than a regular hotel but not so bad when you split it up with friends.  Other hotels in the area include the Holiday Inn, Hilton and the Hampton Inn right along the beach.

$25 in AirBnB Travel credits – you can find many villas, homes or apartments close to the beach with AirBnb.
