I agree with allmixedup on the place NOT to meet a nice guys: bars, club, etc. And as for the the gym, you can try. But the problem with the gym is that it has too much different type of people, some nice, some not so nice, some overly obsessive with body, etc.
So I recommend you looking for "nice" guys who aren't after one thing, which I assume is sex, at the following places:
try book stores, Barnes & noble, etc
seminars, especially when it deals with improving society and self improvement
volunteer work, food for homeless, home construction
grocery stores, on the "healthy" aisle
local park, on run track
aquarium, museum, art gallery, exhibits
These are just some ideas to improve your chances of meeting a decent guy. But the ultimate question is, what will YOU do once you see such a guy?

The funny thing is that you can find nice guys in most places! There is no one particular place. Just have your radar tuned better for them instead of the kind you don't like.
Go to activities (that *you* like) you think nice guys would do: church singles (be honest and genuine though, don't act fake to get someone to like you. It won't workout long term), volunteer work, political rallies for important causes. Basically look for activities that indicate genuine moral fiber.
That solely rests on what you find as a "nice guy"......a club, bar, pub is not such a good place....and watch out for what you a looking for. the guys with the 6 figure salaries are either taken or want a piece of ass....but you don't want a vagabond either. check out the guys where you go to during the day- a department store, an eating establishment, have a coworker or friend set you up......
Ever tried church? Not necessarily as a dating service, but that's probably the kind of guy you're looking for.
In all honesty, it's all what kind of guy you're looking for! I would say that there are more jerks then good guys. But it depends on what you're into. If you're looking for a guy that is religious, then obviously church would be the place to look. Obviously I wouldn't go to a church to check out a guy, but you know what I mean. If you're into keeping in shape, then definitely a gym would be a great place. Just be careful because I would say that there are a lot of guys who are self indulged at the gym. But I go to the gym 4 or 5 times a week and I am not like that, so there are guys like that. If you enjoy reading, I would say a library. Look in the newspaper for community classes such as painting, dance classes, or things of that nature. You can also strike up a conversation with a guy at the grocery store or coffeehouse. You can get to know the person without sounding desperate.
I believe I would qualify... Let's see, usually when I'm not at home I'm at the ski resorts ripping down the mountain in the winter, or out at the lake on a sailboat in the summer. Otherwise, college, church, trips to Home Depot/lowes/walmart/etc. I would say church is the most sure way to find the correct type of person. Otherwise try visiting places like boat marinas or maybe running/bike shops? Maybe marathons or something like that? Good luck!

The gym is a great place to meet a guy! Although I wouldn't be on a hunt at a club for your dream man, laid back bars are actually good places to meet guys too.
I say look for a decent guy at an activity that you're interested in. Maybe through volunteering, salsa class, cooking, go-karting, or self defense class. There's a few websites out there where singles meet through doing various activities. Even if you don't find mr. Right at that particular activity, at least you enjoyed yourself.
