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. 15 Providence, RI

18 of 21

Locals in this New England city—which readers applauded for being LGBT-friendly—came across as hip, smart, and quirky. They also love good food, with Providence ranking near first place for everything from fine dining to bakeries. For a cool cocktail lounge with an above-and-beyond bar menu, try The Dorrance, in a former Federal Reserve building. Order duck confit or fried-oyster-topped burgers, washed down with an Up and Cumber, made with organic cucumber vodka, elderflower liqueur, and ginger beer. To network with the artsy locals, check out the performance art, galleries, and one-time weekend classes—say, lessons in laser cutting or darkroom photography—at arts space AS220.
