America's Best Cities for Singles
The Skating Club of Boston
No. 20 Boston
Boston’s locals came off as pretty cerebral to readers, so singles may want to mingle at the well-ranked bookstores like Trident Booksellers and Café in the Back Bay, which does flirt-and-flaunt-worthy Trivia Nights. Otherwise, one of the highest concentrations of singles-scene establishments is in the Seaport District. Find a spot on the deck at Atlantic Beer Garden—with local brews like Clown Shoes and Harpoon’s UFO beers—or the happy-hour-ish First Fridays at the Institute of Contemporary Art. Boston also scored well for its parks; you never know when you could have a memorable encounter, whether skating at Boston Common’s Frog Pond or joining one of the park’s drop-in yoga classes.
