    Chicago's north side Boystown neighborhood on Wednesday was named the best gay neighborhood in the world.

    The accolade from OutTraveler.com said the nation's first officially-recognized gay village in the nation beat out other neighborhoods like San Francisco's Mission District, New York's Chelsea neighborhood, and communities in Barcelona and Madrid.

    Editors and voters of the travel-themed publication liked the Lakeview neighborhood's massive pride weekend, the August Market Days festival and the recently-passed same-sex marriage law in Illinois.

    OutTraveler named award-winners in other categories like "Most Decadent Destination Party," "Hottest Gay Beach," and "Best City After Dark."
