Five US Destinations for Solo Travel for Female

Five US Destinations for Solo Travel

Before, women who ventured to travel alone to see different parts of the planet, used to face difficulties that ranged from disapproving looks to the prohibition of staying without company in prestigious hotels. Fortunately, times have changed and today there are, in addition to applications to protect your safety, countless guides with tips for women who undertake solo travel.

In addition to the classics in the United States, such as New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles or Chicago, we have added five US destinations for solo travel in this country, which we guarantee will make your empowered trip something memorable.


This city is the capital of the Lone Star State and home to the main campus of the University of Texas. Thus, it has an active political, student and cultural life. In addition, it is an important gastronomic destination, without forgetting that it is also called the world capital of live music. If you have a hipster heart, it's "the" place to hang out at coffee shops serving different types of gourmet and specialty coffee -a must-see is Wright Bros. Brew & Brew-, and also home to a number of vintage clothing stores and antiquing - check out the quirky Uncommon Objects , which sells jewellery, taxidermy and toys. 

If you miss the natural envirnment, have breakfast at Veracruz All Natural, a taco food truck located east of Austin. There, order the taco de migas: scrambled eggs with tortilla chips, tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, and cheese; all inside a homemade corn tortilla, which you can accompany with fresh watermelon or mango water. Lose yourself on South Congress, an avenue that concentrates luxury boutiques and other more down-to-earth ones like Parts & Labour, where you can buy your car sticker that says "Keep Austin Weird", the unofficial motto of the city. For dinner, reserve a table at Lenoir. There, its owners offer a creative menu with influences from India, Southeast Asia and the South of the United States. The house, renovated with shabby chic decoration, and the backyard are pleasant for a warm night. Like the common areas of the Hotel San Jose bar, where you can end the night with a glass of wine under the starry sky.


Since its founding nearly four centuries ago, Portland has grown from a small colonial port to become Maine's largest metropolitan area and one of the most visited on the East Coast. 

In recent decades, different urban renewal projects have brought new life to the historic harbour and downtown areas, where today fine restaurants, microbreweries, and art galleries congregate. We are talking about the vibrant Old Port district, steps from the commercial docks and fishmongers. Stroll down cobblestone streets and enjoy fresh seafood—fact: Maine is the world's leading producer of lobster—at its famous Fish Market. 

Another place worth visiting is the Portland City Hall, while the Portland Science Center is well worth a visit. Old Port is also the place where the fishing boats leave and the ferry that goes to one of the islands of Casco Bay. Take a tour of the Downtown Arts District, where several theatres, galleries and museums such as the Portland Museum of Art are grouped.

If you walk across the bay to Bug Light Park, you'll have a great view of Portland. If you walk a little further, along the coast you will find the Portland Lighthouse, the first in the United States, commissioned by President George Washington in 1787.


Two Nobel Peace Prize winners were born in the Georgia state capital: Martin Luther King Jr. and Jimmy Carter, whose medals are on display in the city. Perhaps thanks to that legacy, Atlanta is today a diverse and tolerant city, as well as a foodie center and a quiet place to live and tour, of course. 

Any visit to this metropolis should begin in the city center, specifically in the Centennial Olympic Park, revitalized for the 1996 Olympic Games and now a symbol of the city. Once there, take the opportunity to discover other nearby attractions, such as the World of Coca Cola, CNN headquarters and the Georgia Aquarium, all in the same area. Moving away from the hub, visit the open-air spaces that connect to different neighbourhoods and parks in Atlanta. Like Piedmont Park, which offers a variety of events and activities. Atlanta Beltline is a continuously growing urban development project with green areas, trails and transportation that provides access to different parts of the city.

Also called “The Beverly Hills of the East,” Buck head is a chic neighbourhood with upscale shops, art galleries, and restaurants in the southern part of the city. There, visit the Swan House mansion and its gardens and interiors. Not only is it part of the Atlanta History Center, but it was also a location for the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The multi-ethnic neighbour hoods of the Atlanta metropolitan area are the essence of its diverse culinary scene. From delicious tapas at the Barcelona Wine Bar, to Thai food in the Five Points area.


Located in the Sonoran desert in the state of Arizona, Scottsdale is a known sanctuary for the rich and famous, and is home to more spas per person than any other city in the United States. It used to be the winter home of Frank Lloyd Wright, whose legacy lives on in Scottsdale, at Taliesin West. This stone structure on different levels was not only the architect's winter home, but also where his apprentices lived and worked. When the building was not yet built, at the end of the 30s, the architect and his wife were camping in the desert. Today, you can visit this site, the only one registered as a historic building in Scottsdale.

As for the old town of this city, this one feels like you are in an Old West movie. When you walk through the impressive Sonoran desert, which by the way is the most biologically diverse on the continent, look out for weeds, wild flowers and its emblematic cactus, the saguaro.

If you like shopping, you will love Fashion Square. It is a luxury shopping center of more than 176,000 square meters, with more than 200 stores and restaurants. Very close, you will find art galleries and tourist complexes where you can hire different wellness packages that will make you feel renewed.


Located in the Mariana Islands, in Micronesia, a group of islands in the western Pacific, Guam has been a territory of the United States since 1898, when it was ceded by Spain. It is characterized by its beaches, coastal villages and lattes, which are stone pillars with hemispherical capitals with the flat side facing up

and which were used as construction supports by the ancient inhabitants, called "chamorros", before the arrival of the first European settlers.

Guam's strategic importance during World War II is appreciated at the Pacific War National Historical Park, whose sites include Asan Beach, a former battlefield, and a Japanese freighter used in the war. Meanwhile, the island's Spanish heritage can be seen at the Nuestra Senora de la Soledad fort.

Famous for its tropical beauty, Guam is barely 48 kilometres long and no more than 15 kilometres wide, so getting around it won't be difficult -we recommend doing it by car, on the road that runs through the entire island.

The local population speaks Chamorro, a language that, due to four centuries of dependence on Spain, has a large Spanish vocabulary. The Chamorro people also maintain other Hispanic traditions, such as gastronomy, their dances and names and surnames. All this because, in addition, the Mariana Islands used to be the link between the Philippines and some countries in Latin America.

Your vacation can start in Tamuning, at Tumon Bay, or at nearby Alapung Beach. Both points are reached after a short drive from the airport via Route 10A and South Marine Corps Drive. There you can hire water sports services such as parasailing, rides in inflatable boats, diving -with snorkeling or oxygen tank-, swimming with dolphins and more.

Guam is surrounded by the Mariana Trench, which means it is close to some of the deepest water on the planet and is a must see for certified scuba divers.
