By: Joe Thompson

You know Halloween is an important holiday to gay folk, and our suggestions for the "Cheapest, Gayest, Most Outrageous Halloween Costumes" have got you hooked up, so one more question now arises: Where should you go on the big day?

Out Traveler's Curtis Kowalski has compiled a list of the best destinations, including historic stops, haunted hotels, Halloween parades and, our two favorite topics, premiere party places and where to spot the sexiest studs in costume.

Los Angeles: West Hollywood Halloween Carnival or Heidi Klum’s annual Halloween party
