None of my friends could get away and since I am long overdue for vacation, decided to book 4 days in South Beach from August 25,2013 to August 29th, 2013. I have never traveled solo before, so will admit that it is a bit anxiety provoking.
Was looking for someplace relaxing, near the beach and without a ton of couples/honeymooners and place where I could meet some single women.
I am white, 37, not into the club scene, but ok with the bar/lounge scene as far as nightlife.
When I told some people that I was going to South Beach, I got a lot of comments from friends/family that it was a bad move.. partially because SOBE has a very large gay community and it is not the place for a single straight guy to go alone (unless I was open to changing teams so to speak).
I have no interest in changing teams, so wondering if this was a bad choice as far as a vacation spot???
I was going to do some tour things by day (Miami tour, Everglades Tour, maybe a walking tour) and relax at the pool/beach.
At night, really have no clue yet.... .
A) Single Straight guy traveling solo to South Beach? I have cancellation insurance.. Should I be using it? Or are family/friends comments off the mark?
B) If I go through with the trip, any suggestions on places to go to meet other single/straight women?
Thanks very much!
