N.O. Tops Singles Charts - Again


For the second year in a row, New Orleans was ranked the best spot to fly solo. NOLA won Travel & Leisure Magazine's “Best Cities for Singles." We're also first for cocktails and “fascinating people”, whatever that means, as well as neighborhood cafes.

 

Whether it's trawling down Bourbon St. at 2.30 in the morning with Hand Grenade-in-paw or spending their parent's cash in some Marigny watering hole it seems that single  folks from far and wide just can't get enough of the Crescent City and its veritable cornucopia of delights. And, Travel and Leisure Magazine says, it's not just Bourbon St. where you can feel comfortable on the prowl. There's Frenchmen St., too! Maison and Three Muses score a mention.

 

Coming in at number 2 is Austin, with its “smart, athletic and eco-conscious locals and newly gussied-up dive bars”. With Las Vegas coming in at number 3 it's hard to tell if the article is trying to draw a line differentiating between meeting your soulmate or just finding someone for the night. But we can understand, either way. After all, we host an annual swingers' convention.
