New Orleans doesn’t always spring to mind when researching solo trips in the US, but the Big Easy is one of the best cities to visit alone. You’ll feel welcome even before you walk into a Bourbon Street bar; spend just a second toe-tapping to jazz music on the street and you’ll be dancing with strangers. When the volume gets a little loud, a kayak tour through the bayou will quiet things down – until you join locals at a rowdy crawfish boil.
Solo travel in the US need not be to faraway states; the Hudson Valley proves it. The quiet, woodsy area is only two hours from Manhattan, yet you’ll think you’re a million miles away from the noise of Times Square. This long-weekend TRIPS by Culture Trip holiday for singles or solo travelers who need a place to recharge includes meditation sessions, yoga lessons and a creative workshop that requires no artistic hand.
Get your fill of California’s wilderness and wine on this Golden State getaway. Perfect for solo travelers to the US who want to mix and mingle with new friends, there’ll be plenty of time to play twenty questions during long hikes, longer bikes and swimming sessions in the lake. By the time you and your new besties reach Napa and Sonoma Valleys, you’ll be snapping group selfies and following each other on Instagram for years to come.
Get off the beaten path and then go farther on this eight-day adventure through Utah and Colorado. This small group TRIPS by Culture Trip tour for thrillseekers tackles two national parks, countless natural sites and a whole lot of craft beer. The only time you may wish you brought a friend is when you spend the night in the creepy hotel from The Shining. No stress – you’re more likely to find a deer banging down your door than Jack Torrance.
Tons of holiday solo trips in the US will lead you to California, though it’s the shores of Lake Tahoe where you’ll find the ultimate wellness retreat. Give yourself a long-overdue break with a few days of relaxation by the lake. Instructed meditation and yoga will center your mind, body and soul while nights of undisturbed stargazing put every thought to rest. This easygoing TRIPS by Culture Trip break will leave you mesmerized by California’s beauty – and you’re sure to hit your s’mores quota.
