Alexander's gives you the best of both worlds: a quiet, luxurious retreat next door to America's party playground. The rooms are quiet and beautifully appointed. A 15 minute walk takes you to the gay bars on Duvall Street. The seaport and most water activities are 10 minutes away; a 20 minute walk takes you to Mallory Square and the word's most famous sunset. Because it is both gay and lesbian, Alexander's provides an open atmosphere but one that is not sexually charged.
Bloomington, Indiana is one of the most welcoming and gay-friendly small cities I have ever traveled to, partially due to Indiana University and the LGBT initiatives they have implemented over the past few decades. This coupled with a bohemian lifestyle among residents makes it a great destination to visit for a weekend getaway. I would never have known that Bloomington was home to such a rich Tibetan culture but as I would soon discover, the city is extremely diverse in its cultural offerings, especially when it comes to culinary establishments. Downtown is rich in its offering of international restaurants. From Thai to Indian to Burmese cuisine, there is something for everyone. Upon entering the grounds of the Cultural Center, one is instantly transported to a foreign land. While there, take the time to meditate and learn about the Buddhist culture.
