Sometimes, there’s nothing wrong with packing a bag for a quick solo trip. I, for one, enjoy discovering new destinations on my own for the sole purpose of planning my own stops and making sure I see everything I want to see. Traveling solo can be good for the soul – especially when you’re in a position where you need a few days to yourself. So your bags are packed and you’re ready to go – but where should you go? Orlando is too family oriented, New York is too confusing, Key West is too romantic and Los Angeles is too…”Hollywood.” Have no fear, we compiled 5 of the best cities to travel solo. Grab that bag, hop in your car and drive to one of these fantastic cities.

San Francisco

From the Golden Gate Bridge to Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco has so many things to do to keep a solo traveler occupied. San Fran will give you a “city” feel with that ocean atmosphere. Perfect for traveling alone.

Washington D.C.

If you’re like me and love museums, monuments and marveling and fascinating things, Washington DC is a perfect destination for a solo traveler. There are plenty of things to absorb and discover on your own.

San Diego

San Diego, like San Francisco, but much more of a tropical atmosphere. Spend a day at the beach or crossing the bridge over to the beautiful shops and restaurants of Coronado.

Seattle is a grown up play ground. Grab a famous cup of coffee from the original Starbucks and make your way to some of Seattle’s famous monuments.
