It's a city sometimes overlooked by European visitors, who make a beeline for Paris and London. But the city of Brussels is just too beautiful and fun to ignore when traveling overseas.
Seattle Gay News spent four days in the Belgian capital recently, soaking up as much of the culture, gay nightlife, attractions and incredible food as we could. What's great about Brussels is its size, home to only 145,000 people (within the city proper boundaries), making it super easy to navigate around day or night.
One of the gay-friendliest and safest destinations in Europe, Brussels' centralized location allows for a perfect overnight or weekend excursion when visiting other nearby places.
In our upcoming Summer Travel issue (Pride edition, June 15), we'll provide information on how to get to Belgium from Seattle, where to stay and recommendations on terrific local restaurants and gay bars. It will also be available online at www.sgn.org shortly after June 15.
If you've never been to Brussels before, get a glimpse of it with Seattle Gay News next week!
