I have always been holiday obsessed. Whether it's getting dressed up for Halloween, stuffing my face with pie for Thanksgiving, decorating the tree for Christmas, making a mess with confetti for New Years, or treating myself to something special for my birthday, there are few things I love as much as the holiday season. But there are some things, and travel is one of those things. Which is why, when faced with the choice between staying on the road or returning home for the holidays, I have often chosen the road.
When it comes to solo travel, destination makes a big difference. I hate to admit it. I like to believe that with the right attitude, anything can be an adventure. But as a solo traveler, destination is important. Some places just aren't safe for a solo female traveler, and some places honestly just aren't that interesting when traveling alone. That's why, in my preparation of all the travel I hope to do when I return to America, I've put together a list of the top five U.S. cities for solo travelers.
