Gay Bloomington: Surprisingly gay

Bloomington has a lot to offer. Not only is is a charming college town, but in a shocking decision, it was also recently named the fourth gayest city in America by The Advocate. We don't deny it has come a long way, and is decidedly gay, but somehow to rank it above, say, Atlanta, seems a little, well, unusual. Maybe The Advocate forgot to actually pay the cities a visit. At any rate Bloomington cam claim to have the nation's 5th largest population of gay couples per capita. It is also an up and coming destination for food and wine lovers. Even though there are not a lot of gay bars, downtown is definitely gay friendly.
