America’s Best Cities for Singles

Which cities make unattached travelers feel most welcome? T+L readers ranked those with the liveliest singles scenes, whether at bars, bookstores, or bowling alleys.

No. 12 Kansas City, MO

12 of 21

Kansas City appeals to singles by being refreshingly down-to earth (read: cheap dates); it ranked at the top of the survey for its affordability and its barbecue. The trendiest singles scene these days is in the Westport area—once a trading post for wagons heading west—where you can kick back at fancy sports bar Westport Ale House or sip a Saturday Night Special (PBR with cinnamon whiskey) at Julep. Speaking of suds, Kansas City took the silver medal this year for its craft beer, thanks to longtime favorite Boulevard Brewing Co. as well as newcomers like Cinder Block Brewery. Indeed, Cinder Block’s North Kansas City taproom offers easy access to the burnt ends from food truck Back Rack Grill, which parks outside on weekends.
