Take a break at the Boston Common, the oldest public park in the city. Located near downtown, this green space is an excellent option for solo travelers to enjoy a picnic on the benches, take a nature walk, or admire the surrounding scenery of the pond and trees. Don’t miss the adjacent Public Garden for a view of manicured gardens and an array of lovely flowers.

The capital of Scotland is the perfect city for a solo trip consisting of beautiful stone architecture, the striking Medieval Old Town, and rich cultural landmarks.

Head over to the Old Town, where you can wander through the narrow passages and admire the beautiful historical monuments, delightful shops and quaint cafes. 

While in the heart of the city, you’ll also encounter The Royal Mile.

Singapore is noted for their spectacular green landscape and cleanliness. Singapore is extremely safe for a big city, which is part of the reason it is a popular destination for people in their 60’s who are traveling alone.

In the heart of downtown lies the Gardens by the Bay, a massive nature park that spans across 250 acres. Wander through the majestic gardens, which feature an extensive collection of over 1.5 million plants!

Though Utrecht is a larger city with excellent amenities, it also offers the charm of a smaller town. This medieval city in the Netherlands consists of lovely canals, well-preserved ancient architecture, and a quaint ambiance that is ideal for exploring by foot. 

Take a leisurely stroll by the old canal in the city center, and admire the picturesque backdrop, the ancient houses, as well as the cafes and shops. If you prefer to venture out onto the actual canals, kayak and boat rentals are available.

For a unique museum choice, head over to the Museum Speelklok, a unique haven for antique automated musical instruments. You’ll discover musical clocks, musical boxes, and the classic Dutch street organ.
