Cape Town

Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

It's good for couples and for families, because of the number of outdoor activities, including kid-friendly. Also plenty of movie options, shopping and so on. Families I know with kids here are generally pretty happy. I can't speak as confidently for singles, but I imagine it would be a pretty good city, especially for those who are outdoorsy. - Oct 1, 2017
This is a good city for everyone. - May 13, 2014
Cape Town is great for everyone!! Singles may find South Africans to be a bit stand-offish at first, but there are clubs and groups to join and lots to do. - Aug 26, 2013
If one is willing to make friends and experience the local culture, I can't imagine that anyone wouldn't love Cape Town! We have family/single/couples friends and all love this city. - Oct 28, 2007
