LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville was named one of Orbitz's ten hottest gay destinations for 2016.

The travel website says it hopes Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis doesn't make people think the Bluegrass State is "intolerant."

The company describes the River City as an "urban charmer that rolls out the welcome mat for queer tourists."  The article mentions Actors Theatre of Louisville, the abundance of bourbon distilleries, and local bars on Bardstown Road as top attractions. 

Louisville did so well in the ranking that the city was in the top five. The rankings according to Orbitz are:

  1. Downtown Los Angeles, California
  2. Paris, France
  3. Thailand
  4. Louisville, Kentucky 
  5. Puerto Rico 
  6. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  7. Ireland
  8. Route 66, USA
  9. Tahiti
  10. Eureka Springs, Arkansas
