Despite the cliche that single people are lonely and depressed during Christmas, most of us manage to get through it just fine. In fact, sometimes it can be better being single during this time of year. Especially since we get to be selfish and buy and do whatever we want. Plus, we’ve got some vacation time coming up. So, why not travel somewhere that’s perfect for a single man? But, more specifically, somewhere that would also be great during the holidays.
No matter where your preferences or budget, here is a our holiday getaway guide with the best places to spend Christmas for the single man. And, remember, getting out of town doesn’t always mean the best places just to pick up women.
If You’re Into Skiing
This time of year is perfect for skiing and other mountain sports. Of course, not all skiing resorts are equal. Besides finding destinations with great slopes, you also want to find spots that have a great nightlife and are known for hosting singles. Also, many of the following resorts are in close proximity to major cities, which means they are close to airports and are filled with people from those cities.
Some of the best resorts for singles, according to Theskichannel.com are: Park City, Utah; Whistler/Blackcomb, Canada; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Winter Park, Colorado; Mammoth, California; Killington, Vermont; Lake Tahoe, California; Breckenridge, Colorado; Vail, Colorado; and Sugarloaf, Maine.
We’d also like to recommend Mont Tremblant Ski Resort in Quebec. Besides being one of the best ski resorts in the East, there’s also a connecting casino. For an added bonus, it’s only 1 1/2 hour north of Montreal, which is usually considered one of the best cities in the world for a single guy.
If You’re a Beach Bum
Some of us may not be into skiing, or want to escape to a more tropical climate.
The following beaches have often been considered as some of the top beach vacations during the winter: the Bahamas; Todos Santos, Mexico; Oaxaca, Mexico; Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic; the Florida Keys; St. Lucia in the Caribbean; and Hawaii.
While each of those destinations offer different experiences, you can be certain that you’re going to enjoy beautiful weather and world renown beaches. Also, beach resorts near these destinations offer plenty of outdoor activities, such as fishing, scuba diving, golfing and sailing, as well as, good food and drinks.
Take A European Vacation
You could always just hop across the pond and spend your holidays in Europe. Besides experiencing different Christmas traditions, food, culture and history, Europe has plenty of other activities to keep the single man happy. While a city like Paris wouldn’t be recommended, cities like Rome, Moscow, Helsinki and Stockholm are favorites for single men. These cities not only have long and interesting Christmas festivities, history and architecture, there also known for their beautiful and glamorous women.
However, Europe has plenty to offer besides their historic cities. Skiers could retreat to Geneva, Switzerland. And, those seeking a warmer climate could head down to Spain or Greece for a comfortable Mediterranean climate.
If You Want To Stay Stateside
Maybe you just want to head to a major city here in the States, since you’re not really a skier or beach person, or money and time is a factor. Well, the good old U.S.A. has some great cities for single men as well.
Naturally, New York City is included. It’s the City That Never Sleeps. And, there’s more than enough sightseeing and events to keep you occupied. Plus, there’s lots of ladies, whether they’re local or just visiting the Big Apple. Plus, while in NYC, you can feel the Christmas Spirit by checking out the famous Rockefeller Center, and, ring in the New Year as well.
Las Vegas may sound a bit cliche, but there will be plenty of other tourists, partying, shows and gambling to make this a perfect getaway. And, besides New York City, would there be any other city in the States that you would want to spend New Year’s Eve in?
Finally, there’s Miami. Beautiful weather and women make this city the perfect destination for any single man year round.

There’s also the men that like adventure. For those type of guys, we recommend you check out some of the travel packages offered by The Adventure Company.
The company offers exotic destinations to Peru, where you can see the magnificent Machu Picchu, a wildlife excursion in Costa Rica, a safari in India, or even a chance to conquer Mt. Everest. No matter which corner of the world you’d like to experience, or adventure to partake, there’s no better time to do so then the holidays.
