America's Best Cities for Singles
Surly Brewing Co.
No. 10 Minneapolis/St. Paul
These Minnesotans made readers swoon for being the smartest, fittest, and friendliest in the nation—and they also ranked at the top for being gay-friendly. Depending on the season, you can mingle in the Twin Cities’ scenic parks or hole up indoors at beloved bookstores like Uptown’s Magers & Quinn or shops like Martin Patrick3, which offers sleek takes on the traditional Minnesota-plaid look, as well as elegant home design. Strike up a conversation over craft brews at the “breakfast-to-beer” micropub Freehouse, in the North Loop, or at the new Surly Brewing beer hall on Malcolm Avenue.
