Top Cities for Single Male Travelers Worldwide

It’s no secret single men who travel often look to mingle. Thankfully, there are plenty of great cities where guys can cut loose and potentially meet the girl — or guy — of his dreams. Here are a few hot spots for single men around the world.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Your guide will meet you in San Antonio de Areco, a historic gaucho town, where you will learn about the art of silver and metal-working and walk the sleepy colonial streets.
