The Sunshine State for Singles

Filed Under: Florida

Although it might be better known as a family-friendly destination, Florida is also a playground for some of the hottest tanned and toned singles around. Whether it’s Cocoa Beach’s laid-back surf scene or South Beach’s trendy, fashionable club scene, the Sunshine State is the place to find a date on your next vacation. Take a look at Travel Channel’s top destinations for singles visiting Florida and how they rate on our Kiss-ability Scale (otherwise known as the hook-up factor).

Nikki Beach
Kiss-ability Rating: 5 out of 5 lipstick kisses

Kiss-ability Factor:  This beach/night club lives by the motto "The Sexist Place on Earth."  Known as a party playground for VIPs and singles, you will find lots of eye candy at Nikki Beach. It starts in the morning when girls and guys throw on their bathing suits and hang out in one of the cabanas or raised opium beds, and ends in the evening with the crowd at the nightclub dancing till dawn in their sexiest attire. The weekends are no different as Sexy Saturdays and  Amazing Sundays bring pool parties, gourmet brunches, top DJs and lots of singles looking to show off some skin.
The Raleigh Hotel

The Villa
