Nominate The Cabanas for the Travel Awards!

Calling all high-flying, train-riding, car-tripping, ship-sailing, vacation-loving gays! We’re launching the 16th Annual Travel Awards, and to help us decide on the nominees for each category, we’re turning to the smartest, savviest travel experts we know — namely, YOU. After all, who says the “experts” know how to travel better than you do?

So look at the 11 categories and post your suggestions in the comments section below. Tell us about that little nightspot in San Diego that served the cheapest and best margaritas you’d ever tasted, or the cozy P-Town inn where you and your longtime partner rekindled your romance, or the hotel in South Beach so red-hot and over the top it just screamed sex.

Be specific — make sure to tell us why you think this spot is the place to visit. (Were the town’s boys hunky and the girls glam? Did the innkeepers make you feel especially welcome? Does the hotel chain take care of its LGBT employees?)

You have until the end of December to make your suggestions, and we’ll announce the nominees on January 5, 2009. Send this link to as many friends as you can, because we want this year’s Travel Awards to truly reflect the many voices of the gay and lesbian traveler.

And always remember, contrary to popular belief, we seasoned LGBT travelers know that most of the time, the destination is just as important as the journey.
