Forbes named Atlanta the No. 1 city for singles on its 2016 list of "12 Best Cities for Singles," based on the results of three recent rankings from WalletHub, NerdWallet and Travel + Leisure. It's a pretty big climb for Atlanta, since it placed No. 8 for Forbes best single cities last year.
Atlanta with its high percentage – nearly 70 percent – of single folks, plethora of clubs per capita, penchant for cocktail distilleries, fabulous food and generally hip locals made for a perfect winner of the “Best Cities for Singles” title, according to Forbes.
