Traveling solo comes with a host of benefits.

If you are ready to embark on this adventure, here are a few places to consider.
Grab a reservation at a hotel and spa and enjoy a relaxing solo getaway in the rolling vineyards of Napa. You don’t have to be a wine lover to appreciate the natural beauty, laid back atmosphere, and decadent food scene that Napa offers.
If you love the outdoors and getting into nature, Vancouver is a beautiful place to explore. Granville Market and Stanley Park are two of the city’s highlights, but with options from the vibrant downtown to the nearby mountains, every day will be a chance to create memories to last a lifetime.
When looking at South America, there are many destinations that would offer a great solo escape. Santiago makes the list due to its local food scene, ease of transportation, friendly locals, and Spanish and English speaking communities. You can opt to stay in the city or explore the nearby mountains and hikes through nature.
Ghana is known for many things, but when it comes to solo travel, it’s the kindness and generosity of the locals that make this a great destination. With the ocean nearby as well as many excellent restaurants, bars, and shops, you will never grow tired of exploring this dynamic city.
If this is your first solo trip, London is a great place to start. Their highly efficient public transportation system makes it a breeze to get around the city.

London also offers a great deal of free and affordable activities like visiting parks, museums, and local attractions.
