Best Destinations for Solo Travelers | John Gavin
Many people love to travel, but sometimes we don’t have the time or money to vacation. When you’re thinking about taking a solo trip, it’s essential to find a destination to make you feel at home. Check out this list of five destinations for solo travelers before making your decision.
1) Reykjavik, Iceland
Reykjavik is a great place for solo travelers. It’s small enough that you can get to know the city in less than 48 hours but big enough to have everything from museums and galleries to restaurants and bars. The locals are amiable, making it easy to meet people if you’re open to it. From Reykjavik, you can quickly go on day trips to nearby cities and glaciers. If the summer is too busy for you, try visiting during wintertime when there aren’t as many tourists around.
2) Dublin, Ireland
Dublin is a fantastic place for solo travelers because it’s not too big and has many places to visit. It has many museums and galleries and some interesting architecture like the ancient cathedrals and castles. Day trips are available from Dublin, or one can rent an apartment in the city when one travels. The people are friendly, and there are lots of pubs where you can meet other travelers.
3) San Francisco, California
San Francisco is another great place for solo travelers to visit. It’s big enough that you won’t get bored but small enough to be able to see everything within one week. There are many activities and things for visitors here, including walking tours around the city and wine tasting at vineyards in Napa Valley (about an hour away). San Francisco is a safe city and has many great restaurants to eat out for dinner.
4) Paris, France
Paris is an excellent destination for solo travelers because it has plenty to see and do. You can go shopping in the Champs-Élysées or visit museums like the Louvre, which houses some of the world’s most famous works of art, including “The Mona Lisa.” There are also lots of cafes where you can have a leisurely drink and people-watch. Paris is also home to some of the world’s best restaurants, so you’ll never be bored with your food options.
