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. 20 Boston

20 of 21

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.
