The best and worst US cities for singles in 2024

Struggling to meet someone? You might not be totally to blame! It turns out the city where you live makes a big difference. Some cities have a much higher number of single people, or going out to meet people comes at a lower cost, with better amenities and safety available. Dating in these cities makes it a lot easier for singles to spend time (and money) meeting new people, with a bigger dating pool available to choose from. Conversely, there are cities where unaffordability is a problem, where there is a mismatch between the number of singles of a certain gender, or there is a smaller pool of eligible people to date. Curious? Click on to find out which US cities you should go, and where to avoid, if you're single in 2024. All prices in USD.

The Best Solo Travel Destinations in the United States for an Unforgettable Adventure

Whether you're looking for nonstop activity or total relaxation. While traveling with friends and family can be a lot of fun, going somewhere alone has its perks. You get to choose everything — the destination, the hotel, the itinerary, the restaurants, how much money you spend and beyond. Only one opinion matters...yours. It's also a great way to push yourself out of your comfort zone, meet new people (if you so choose), unplug, rejuvenate and bask in moments of reflection — or even just escape reality for a few days. Whether you're planning your first adventure on your own or are a solo travel veteran, choosing a destination can be overwhelming, especially if you still have a lot of places to check off your bucket list. The good news is, you don't have to go far for the adventure or relaxation you crave, because there are plenty of options across the U.S. Weighing variables such as walkability, safety, self care opportunities, number of historic sites and museums and access to nature, we've come up with a list of the best places in the U.S. for solo travelers — ranging from mountain and beach destinations to small towns and large cities. Time to book your ticket for one, plan your itinerary (or don't, remember, it's your trip!) and answer to no one except yourself for a few days.

History's most impressive sea forts

Sea forts are fortified stone structures located in the ocean. They can be found in the shallows near the coast, or set further off the mainland in deeper water.

A signature of East and Southeast Asian architecture and common to China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam and other countries in the region, the pagoda is a tiered tower-like structure made of brick, stone, or wood and characterized by multiple, upward curving eaves.

13 Amusement Parks in the U.S. That Are Completely Free to Enter

A few even charge you nothing for parking and entertainment. Amusement parks are synonymous with so many wonderful things: fun in the sun, rollercoasters and carousels, games galore and delicious food. And all in a colorful, jubilant, family-friendly setting. The only issue? Joy like that does not typically come cheap. Or can it? Well, at these 13 amusement parks across the U.S., from the Golden to the Garden States, you can save on one very important front: entry. While the vast majority of amusement parks — including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens — require tickets just to walk through the gates, these resorts and parks do not. Of course, if you want to ride the rides or snack on the snacks, you'll still have to open your wallet. (A good thing can only go so far!) But if you're someone who's more about the vibes than the rides, this is the list for you. Make sure you scroll to the bottom: There's one very famous park that's about to go "open gate" with its water parks for guests staying on property. (Hint: It's home to a special mouse!)
