2. Springfield, Mass. (pop. 153,155)
Though it’s not exactly a household name as an LGBT hot spot, Springfield ought to be. The city is among the top 10 cities in the U.S. in percentage of same-sex couples, according to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, and it’s a desirable place to relocate from the metropolises because of its location near skiing, shores, Boston, and Provincetown. LGBTs appreciative of art and architecture inhabit gay-popular hoods Downtown, McKnight, Forest Park, and the Ridgewood/Maple Hill area of Six Corners.
