Brooklyn, New York

It’s the city that never sleeps. So if you plan on forgetting all about that ex you should distract yourself day and night in N.Y.C. Explore Brooklyn, one of the city’s trendiest boroughs, and sample the best of its café and craft beer scene in Williamsburg, then visit the impressive Barclay’s Center over in Prospect Heights. Come sundown, take advantage of the array of clubs and music venues at your disposal.

San Diego, California

In the second-largest city in California, the chance of finding a summer fling to help you get over your broken heart is fairly high. But even if that plan fails, you can always hole up somewhere along San Diego’s 70-mile stretch of coastline and simply soak up the glorious sunshine.

Las Vegas, Nevada

It isn’t called Sin City for nothing… There couldn’t be a better playground for the newly-single-and-ready-to-mingle crowd. From pool parties at the Grand Hotel to the club scene at The Mirage or The Bellagio, if ever there was a destination to rally your crew and party hard it’s Vegas.

Miami, Florida

Put down that tub of ice cream and don your swimwear because nothing will put a smile back on your sorrowful face like a week (or two) spent soaking up the sun, seas and bright white sands of Miami. Head down to South Beach or Little Havana for a well deserved beachside break.
