4 Best Places to Travel Alone

Planning a solo travel trip? You have to visit these best places to travel alone.

Once you experience one of these cities alone, you’ll have a new found love and understanding of not only yourself, but also the world and its many destination spots for solo travelers. What exactly makes a destination a great one for solo travelers? Landscape, history, culture, etc. just to name a few. We like to think that if a place can offer personal growth through experiences alone, then that is enough to want to visit it.

Here are the 4 best places to travel alone:

Portland, Oregon

Is West Coast the best coast? If you’re talking about Portland, Oregon, then you might be right. Portland has become an affordable destination city with its love of both city life and nature. While you’re traveling alone, be sure to stop by this bike-commuting city that believes in this mantra: “Keep Portland Weird.”

Things to do & places to see:

  • See Portland’s skyline by kayaking downtown.
  • Stop and smell the roses—”City of Roses” to be more specific.
  • Fall in love with your favorite book all over again at Powell’s City of Books.
  • People-watch and stroll through Northwest District.

Dublin, Ireland

Ireland’s Cap City and epicenter is so vibrant and full of culture that you won’t even realize you’re alone. Because Ireland is smaller, you can make day trips to other parts of the country to see castles, cliffs, museums and so much more. With its deep rooted history, Dublin is a place you want to visit at least once in a lifetime. Why not make that trip a solo one?

Things to do & places to see:

  • Take in the beauty at Cliffs of Moher.
  • Drink a perfect pint (or several) of Guinness at Guinness Storehouse.
  • The drinking isn’t over yet… Pub crawl, anyone? Meet fellow beer enthusiasts at The Brazen Head.
  • Stay at a hostel to save money and to meet new people.

Toronto, Canada

Looking to splurge a bit on yourself? You deserve it. Toronto can be more expensive than most trips, where prices are comparable to that of NYC or LA. Fortunately, you can save a lot by traveling on foot, by bike or public transportation.

Things to do & places to see:

  • Check out the CN Tower, the tallest freestanding structure in the western hemisphere, and enjoy a hands-free walk on the outside ledge of the tower.
  • Hop on a ferry and see the Toronto islands, a collection of eight islands.
  • Go to one of the best markets in the world, St. Lawrence Market.
  • Expand your mind at one of Toronto’s museums, like Royal Ontario Museum.

San Francisco, California

Whatever happened to predictability? This Full House-embracing city is perfect for solo travelers who want to wind down and relax in a city full of generally happy people. If you enjoy walking, then bring your favorite pair of walking shoes and get ready to fall in love with San Fran.

Things to do & places to see:

  • Experience where the hippie movement derived at Haight-Ashbury.
  • Brunch at one of the best brunch spots, Mission Beach Cafe.
  • Check out the breathtaking and iconic view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
