Everyone knows that New York City is THE place to be during Pride Weekend. With all of the events taking places in the Big Apple, why not take a unique journey on the waters of the Hudson? The Avalon – a two-story party yacht has all of the amenities needed to celebrate pride weekend in style – two fully stocked bars, a wide variety food menu, and some of the top-rated DJ’s that have been rockin’ the gay nightlife scene for years. With boarding beginning at 6 PM, the annual “Shades of Love” cruise is the perfect way to take in the sights – especially the scenic pink, orange, ruby red sunsets that Manhattan is oh so famous for.
