With so many destinations on your wish list, you may have trouble finding a travel partner for all of your adventures, but don’t let that keep you from exploring: solo travel is more popular than ever, and affordable hotels easily accessible across the country, it’s never been easier and more cost-effective to travel by yourself.

Find out which U.S. cities are best for solo travel!

Washington, DC – Our nation’s capital is full of things to do, see and taste, providing a jam-packed itinerary perfect for solo travelers. Museums, historical monuments, galleries, memorials, and many more attractions that are typically crowded with groups of tourists are easier to enter and navigate when traveling solo. Make your way around the city on the DC Metro, easily accessible when you’re by yourself and travel to and from your budget-friendly, boutique hotel near DuPont Circle via convenient bus and train stations.

New York City – The ultimate urban travel destination, New York City is more accessible to solo travelers than ever before. NYC has plenty of popular attractions, but the best hidden hotspots, including comedy clubs, lounges, concerts, and nightclubs, are more easily available to solo travelers than groups or even couples. Getting a table at a hot new restaurant is easier on your own, too, making it simple and seamless to explore diverse New York City cuisine. Save money during your Empire State escape by staying just outside the city, in trendy Brooklyn where affordable hotels make it possible to stay in convenient and comfortable accommodations on your own, while remaining close to everything Manhattan has to offer.

Baltimore – Baltimore is fast becoming a must-visit for millennials and solo travelers. The up-and-coming Inner Harbor in Downtown Baltimore – along with neighborhoods like Fells Point and Federal Hill – gives Baltimore its current reputation as the Brooklyn of the Mid-Atlantic. The city is filled with fresh restaurants, vibrant markets, and charming shops against the backdrop of a bustling big city. An area meant to be explored by foot, Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is perfect for wandering solo and discovering on your own. Access the Inner Harbor with ease from the city’s newest boutique hotel, Hotel RL, which offers affordable accommodations for budget-conscious solo travelers and a unique, open atmosphere that’s part café and part workspace to make meeting new friends easier than ever. Be sure to check out Hotel RL Baltimore’s Living Stage calendar to see what performance or presentation is going on in our lobby during your visit.
