NEW: Providence Ranked 10th in US for Singles
Monday, July 25, 2011
And no place better for that summer love than in Providence. Travel + Leisure has named the capital city one of the top places in America to spark that scintillating summer fling, ranking it the 10th best city for singles.
The rankings took a broad range of categories into account, including nightlife, cocktails, and fascinating people. Providence adds this accolade to its #3 standing in neighborhood joints, #4 spot for beer, a #7 slot in stylish people, and a #7 grade in live music. Furthermore, Providence’s population isn’t half-bad looking either, as the city was voted as #15 for most attractive people. Party-all-the-time city New Orleans took top honors in the July 2011 poll. Boston came in a disappointing 19th.
What makes Providence great for singles
Providence offers a plethora of options where one can meet our lovely locals. There is a thriving bar scene, a blossoming art culture, and an abundance of local coffee shops. Travel + Leisure specifically cites Federal Hill, Providence’s Little Italy, as a great area for meeting singles. With bars, lounges, and fantastic Italian restaurants that stay open for dancing, this area is swarming with singles. Providence’s status as a college town, rife with young students, also aids in one’s ability to meet Mr. or Ms. Right. Thayer Street, the commercial hub of Brown University, constantly buzzes with college socialites sampling the incredible amount of restaurants and foraying into local shops that line the road.
So if you have been on a cold streak of late, then take heart. Providence is one of the best cities in the United States for your sort. Put on your best outfit, practice your one-liners, and parade about the city of Providence with the very possible hope that tonight your single drought will be ended.
