Seattle Gay News announces “Best of Travel 2012″ and Stockholm is on the list!
Three travel writers for Seattle Gay News lists their absolute favorite places to stay, eat, drink and visit, plus the best ways of transporting you there.
On the list you’ll find two places in Stockholm. The Sheraton Hotel Stockholm and the restaurant Långa Raden at Hotel Skeppsholmen.
Sheraton Stockholm - “Conveniently located just five minutes from Central Station, this hotel offers stunning views of Stockholm’s unique skyline and tranquil Riddarfjärden at a reasonable price.” J.L. Peerson
Langa Raden – “From a historic 17th-century building inhabiting serene grounds in Stockholm’s artistic center, Langa Raden dishes out traditional Swedish cuisine with a contemporary twist.” J. L. Peerson
And on the list of the best transportation services you find SAS Scandinavian Airlines.
Scandinavian Airlines ‘Economy Extra’ – “Meriting awards not only for their on-time flights, but also for an ahead-of-the-times campaign promoting marriage equality. SAS delivers efficiency and peace of mind for LGBT travellers.” J. L. Peerson

Each year the editors of Monocle selects 50 things from their travels the past year that they felt were exceptional. This year Monocle has awarded Arlanda Express in Stockholm the second place on the list for being the best taxi to train set up. Congratulations!
Arlanda Express, a partner of the Stockholm Gay & Lesbian Network, is the fastest way into town from Stockholm Arlanda Airport. It only takes 20 minutes from the airport to the Central Station in Stockholm. It’s also by far the most environmentally friendly way.
Looking to take your partner on a romantic weekend to Stockholm? The fastest and most environmentally friendly way to travel from Arlanda airport to central Stockholm is by the Arlanda Express train. The journey to the city center takes 20 minutes. All Saturdays and Sundays, two adults travel together for only SEK 280.
But what if you are single? No problem! Take a chance and share the ticket with a new acquaintance. You have the opportunity to flirt at the ticket machines, you never know what it might lead to. At least, you surely will get a nice chat with someone who is also on its way to Stockholm, and maybe you can also get tips on sights and events in the city?
If you are too shy to flirt with strangers at the ticket machines there’s another solution for you. The staff at the Arlanda Express ticket offices will be happy to match you with another single traveler whenever they get the chance.
The Arlanda Express trains are comfortable and modern – and, who knows, when you arrive at the end of the journey, you might share more than just one ticket. You might even have met your true love or a friend for life. So if you participated in the contest “Win a date with Stockholm” without winning – don´t worry, you still have a chance to a date.
Take a chance on Stockholm!
