Summer Data Stories

Summer means two things: weekend getaways and summer flings! So why not kill two birds with one stone and plan your weekend trips where the hottest singles are? The Grade did the research for you and ranked the top weekend destinations in the NY/NJ area to reveal which spots the hottest singles will be visiting this summer.

It turns out that New York beaches are the place for fun in the sun! The hottest single women will be converging on Fire Island, while the sexiest men plan on trekking out to Montauk for their weekend getaways. On the other hand, we suggest staying away from the fist pumping guidos of the Jersey shore, as these singles were ranked last on the list of most-desirable singles.

This data was gathered from over 500 New York users and 100,000 swipe actions on The Grade, by surveying the question, “Which of the following weekend destinations will you be visiting this summer?”. Check out the full list below, broken down by user like-rate (hotness ratio), percent of singles who plan to visit that destination (higher number equals higher chances!), percent wanting a fling (AKA steamy nights to match those hot summer days) and the average age for each gender (in case you don’t believe that age is just a number).
