Think independence, no compromises, wanderlust. Solo travel delivers all this plus more. A solo vacation is one of the best ways to broaden horizons and open the mind to new cultures, ideas, and experiences. What if the choice is all yours? No waiting for someone else to agree on dinner plans or contemplating how to spend the day. There is a freedom to doing it alone—imagine whitewater rafting in Canada, splurging on spa treatments in the Poconos, or hiking amid vineyards in Tuscany. Because you can. The hardest decision is taking that first step. Pick an unforgettable experience, determine the desired destination and then pack that suitcase.
