In a shocking twist, a small city in Wisconsin has been named the second-best city in the United States for single people. That's right, Wisconsin, the land of cheese and beer, has beaten out cities like Los Angeles and New York City for the top spots on the list.

You might be shocked by the news but it's a buzzing community with plenty to do. There is no shortage of bars and restaurants which is probably why it is considered a top spot for singles.

One thing is certain, there must be something about Wisconsin that's really appealing to young people.
