I've traveled solo or with friends. I've been to the East Coast and New England, the South West and Alaska. I've also been overseas to Italy, Africa on safari and Egypt.
I prefer to mingle with the locals going to their restaurants, coffee shops and hanging where they hang out. I usually look for budget motels/inns/hotels since I only need a place to sleep and shower. I've done camping but I am at an age that prefers a bed at night. I'm up by 7:00am and out the door to hike, walk, shop, horseback ride, check out attractions, what ever is there to see or do and I tend to crash and burn around 7:30pm. So I don't really need a fancy hotel with lots of amentiies.
Solo travel was a little acary at first but I have done it a number of times now and it is fun. I've been to Florida, the southwest and Quebec on my own.
