Anywhere along Duval Street is prime viewing, but if you can secure a spot at a bar or restaurant’s balcony overlooking the street (try The Bull & Whistle Bar, Nine One Five, and Pinchers Crab Shack), you’ll have an excellent vantage point of the enormous 100-ft. section of Sea-to-Sea Flag.

What is the Sea-to-Sea Diversity Flag?

The original 2003 ‘Sea-to-Sea’ rainbow flag measured 1.25 miles long, stretched the entire length of Duval from the Atlantic to the Gulf, and required thousands of volunteers to hold. The flag has since been divided up into 100-foot sections and displayed at Pride events around the world!
