The Mission District is no Boystown -- and it's no Castro, either.

It's much, much friendlier for gay tourists.

The Mission is the second-best travel destination in the world for LGBT travelers, according to OutTraveler.com.

That may leave heads scratching up the hill in the Castro, where a giant rainbow flag flutters in the breeze at Harvey Milk Plaza. Still, there's no denying that the Mission has much to offer for travelers concerned with a gay-friendly environment -- and we don't just mean trips to Esta Noche.

The most-incomparable Gay Neighborhood in the World, though, is somewhere a little colder: Boystown on the North Side of Chicago, according to the magazine.
