Your Solo Vacation

Like the fast food slogan “Have it your way,” solo travel guarantees a vacation of your own choosing. Never is the solo traveler required to place somebody else’s needs before their own. Spend an entire vacation poolside or join a 4am rave—no one is stopping you! From the City of Lights to the City by the Bay, Orbitz knows all the best places for solo explorations. Have a ball, the world is truly your oyster! 

Maybe it’s the fact that Chicago is home to more bars per capita than any other city in the nation that we think of it as safe haven for loners or perhaps it’s that Chicago-set films like About Last Night and High Fidelity have cast the city as a single’s paradise, but whatever the reason, dense, walkable and friendly Chicago is a solo traveler’s dream city.

Attractions

Art Institute of Chicago masterworks including “Paris Street; Rainy Day” and “Nighthawks” beg for quiet contemplation; Cloud Gate (aka the Bean), the entrance to Wrigley Field and the Skydeck at Willis Tower were made for selfies; and the 18-mile Lakefront Trail is a runner’s paradise.

Restaurants

Hipster diner Dove’s Luncheonette is crawling with solo eaters; make friends with the cooks at the kitchen counter at Logan Square newbie Giant; solo seats and cracker thin pizzas abound at Eataly; and late-night Francophile diner Au Cheval is a beacon for parties of one.

Bars

Play a vintage video games at Emporium in Wicker Park, make easy friends with a Chicago sports fan at Wrigleyville taprooms Cubby Bear, Johny Barleycorn and Casey Moran’s, swipe right on nearby hipsters at Bar DeVille, Heavy Feather and Danny’s Tavern and make a dreamy same-sex connection at Sidetrack, Roscoe’s and Scarlet.

Hotels

Make friends at the rooftop bars at the Hotel Lincoln and Rafaello; mingle at the Up & Up Lounge at the Robey and the second floor game room at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel; chill with a stylish backpacker crowd at the Acme Hotel and Freehand Hostel; and seek seriously luxe company at posh places like the Bar at The Peninsula or The Langham lobby.

                  Countless TV shows and romantic comedies have pointed to New York City as the quintessential home of the single gal and guy. Let there be no doubt, the Big Apple is a paradise for parties of one. Whether it’s quiet contemplation at the National September 11 Memorial, an early morning stroll along the Highline or your very own counter seat at the city’s hottest restaurant, have a solo ball in NYC.

                  Attractions
                  NYC loves its single travelers. Angle your camera just perfectly to snap an Instagram-worthy photo of the Brooklyn Bridge; enjoy a Broadway show (the best last-minute tickets are usually single seats); jog through Central Park; work on your novel in a West Village café; and duck into the Angelika or IFC and catch a matinee. After hours, a million nightclubs, speakeasies and dive bars beckon the global nomad.

                  Restaurants
                  Braving the queues at Shake Shack are best done with a companion, but there are tons of great places for solo eats. At Mission Chinese, solo diners make new friends at family-style tables; legendary Katz’s Deli is great for a solo bite (despite what Harry and Sally might say); the gorgeous bar at Balthazar is ideal for singles; and of course, food halls like Gotham West Market or Hudson Eats are perfect alone.

                  The camaraderie level is high at sing-along tavern Marie’s Crisis; laidback Library Bar at The NoMad Hotel is perfect for a little quiet time; McSorley’s Old Ale House is the oldest bar in NYC and an ideal joint for meeting fellow tourists; Union Pool in Williamsburg is a singles hot spot; and the Mermaid Inn (a seafood restaurant with two locations) has great bar seating and even better happy hour specials.

                  Hotels
                  Solo travelers will love the stylish new Stewart Hotel, which is close to the Empire State Building and offers budget-friendly Petite Rooms; The Jane Hotel in the West Village vaunts old-time bellhops and also has mini cabin rooms (with shared bath) at dirt cheap rates; the lobby at the Ace Hotel is always abuzz; and the rooftop terrace at the Yotel in Times Square is ideal for meeting fellow travelers over sunset city views.

                                                  Built around a skylit open atrium, this 9-story hotel on San Francisco Bay features an onsite restaurant and is located 2.5 miles from the airport, 10 miles from Half Moon Bay, and 14 miles from downtown San Francisco.

                                                  The Live Music Capital of the World might be the ideal city for rounding up your squad and hitting one of its numerous fests (South By Southwest, Austin City Limits, etc.), but whether you’re enjoying some alone time at the bar at one of its numerous honkytonks or stuffing your face full of barbecue, a solo day on the town is definitely a welcome way to explore this Lone Star gem.

                                                  Attractions
                                                  Hit Zilker Trail for an early morning jog or kayak; swim laps at spring-fed Barton Springs pool; catch a few rays far from any watchful eyes at clothing optional Hippie Hollow; “Snap” the city’s million bats fleeing Congress Bridge at dusk; spend some time in hushed contemplation at the UMLAUF Sculpture Garden; rummage through Austin’s funky boutiques and thrift stores; and catch a flick at Alamo Drafthouse.

                                                  Restaurants
                                                  Austin is full of food trucks, which are great for solo (and budget) travelers. We recommend Luke’s Inside-Out, East Side King and Micklethwait Craft Meats. Elsewhere around town, snag a bar seat at excellent Barley Swine, sidle up to the counter at Hopdoddy Burger Bar or shuck an oyster at the bar at Perla’s. Franklin Barbecue rules, but the lines are long so come ready to chat up the folks next to you.

                                                  Bars
                                                  Where to begin? Beloved by locals, Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon is perfect for a packed night of honkytonk country music (and Sunday bingo!). Rainey Street is full of taverns of every stripe; check out Container Bar (a nightclub made out of shipping containers) or the sprawling outdoor patio at Bungalow. Meanwhile, there’s tourist bars galore on 6th Street and a great lounge at the South Congress Hotel.

                                                  Hotels
                                                  The coolest crash pad in town has got to be the South Congress Hotel. Its aforementioned bar is hopping so be ready for new connections. Want to stay close to the singles scene? The taprooms along Historic Rainey Street are close to the stylish Hotel Van Zandt. Meanwhile, bumping 6th Street is still a nightlife epicenter which means a stay at the legendary Driskill Hotel by Hyatt might just be in order.

                                                                  We’re mad crazy for Portland’s mouthwatering food trucks, oddball energy, farm-to-table everything and even its moody weather. A city of entrepreneurs and eccentrics boasting a mountain in its backyard and two rivers bisecting its energetic downtown, we declare it one of the nation’s great cities for solo exploration—be they indoors or out.

                                                                  Attractions

Spend an hour or two (or more) sifting through great lit at Powell’s City of Books, the largest indie bookseller on earth. Meet up with a group tour to Multnomah Falls or idle away an afternoon on the beach at Sauvie Island—weather permitting!

                                                                  Restaurants

Our favorites include Carte Blanche, Lula’s, Viking Soul Food, Tidbit Food Farm and Garden and the Dutch tacos at Flavour Spot. Elsewhere around town, take a counter seat and order a charcuterie platter at Olympia Provisions; sidle up to the lengthy bar at Farm Spirit for creative vegetarian fare; or line up with the other tourists for a wacky flavored donut from Voodoo. Triple Chocolate Penetration, anyone?

                                                                  Hotels

                                                                                  Both the rowdy spring breakers and bachelorettes that run loose along Bourbon Street and the canoodling couples that board the horse-drawn carriages in Jackson Square paint a lopsided portrait of the Big Easy. A city cherished for its homegrown weirdness is naturally a place where the lone traveler will delight in meeting both colorful locals and other solo adventurers.

                                                                                  Attractions

Snap a selfie in front of the marvelous works of art at the Besthoff Sculpture Garden at City Park, shop for irresistible tchotchkes at the French Market and spend an entire afternoon people watching in Jackson Square. Note: People watching in the Quarter never gets boring!

                                                                                  Restaurants
                                                                                  N’awlins is a city serious about its culinary offerings. The teensy takeout window at Killer Poboys at the Erin Rose bar is perfect for parties of one; take a counter seat in front of the kitchen at Cochon where cooks whip up innovative Cajun fare, and of course, save room for chicory coffee and beignets drenched in powdered sugar at Café du Monde (which is conveniently open 24 hours daily).

                                                                                  Bars

You’ll have zero trouble meeting a fellow traveler or two (or four) at the Sazerac Bar at The Roosevelt Hotel where the namesake cocktail is the drink of choice; the happy hour at Capdeville in the Central Business District is one of the best places in town to meet locals; and hear the best jazz around while rubbing shoulders (and arms and elbows) with perfect strangers at the tightly packed in and weathered Spotted Cat on Frenchmen Street.

                                                                                  Hotels

Follow in the footsteps of legendary writers Hemingway, Faulkner and Tennessee Williams at the storied Hotel Monteleone and buy a round for fellow travelers at the gorgeous—and revolving Carousel Bar. Lastly, don’t miss a morning pastry at Tout La located within the irresistible lobby at The Old No. 77 Hotel and Chandlery.

                                                                                                  Overlooking the Mississippi River, this 29-story New Orleans hotel is adjacent to Harrah's New Orleans Casino and the lively French Quarter, and within 0.5 mile of artsy Jackson Square and the French Market.

                                                                                                  Intrepid travelers love the thrill of visiting a foreign destination without a companion. Some cities are tailor-made for solo explorations. Paris is arguably the quintessential city for idling alone in an outdoor café to work on one’s novel or simply watch the world go by. But of course, there’s also London, Tokyo and Bangkok, mega-cities that thrum night and day with numerous activities for the solo seeker. How about Dublin and its pub culture readymade for meeting locals and fellow travelers alike?

                                                                                                  With safety top of mind for many travelers, destinations where the crime rate is low continue to beckon. Reykjavik is safe, compact and recently more affordable (plus everyone speaks English!) and Vancouver likewise remains a top city for urban explorations without having to watch one’s back. Meanwhile, solo travelers seeking spirituality continue to visit Bali in large numbers while history buffs (who may also happen to like the beach) are discovering the charms of affordable and walkable Dubrovnik in Croatia.

                                                                                                  There’s a big world out there; don’t be shy about discovering it sans companion.

                                                                                                  Vacation and photos go hand in hand and we want to show them off to the world.

                                                                                                  When you have an itch to travel, Orbitz gives you the best way to scratch it. We have some of the best solo vacations for those who need to hit the open road. Think about it: You can go where you want, when you want. We’re here to help you make it happen.

                                                                                                  Have flight, will travel
                                                                                                  The best part of solo vacations is you’re in charge. Spend your entire vacation poolside, or try to fit in everything from skydiving to spelunking during your stay. Between all that sightseeing and meeting new people, you’ll need a place to lay your head. When you book solo vacation packages with Orbitz, you can:

                                                                                                  • Live luxuriously: It’s your trip, remember? You can pick the hotel that suits you. Book a luxury hotel with a spa, gourmet restaurant and premium bedding. You’ll be so comfortable, you’ll fall asleep faster than you can say “thousand-thread-count sheets.”
                                                                                                  • Make your travel dreams come true: Spend all day at art galleries or libraries. Take that history tour. Do that tiki-bar-hop you’ve always wanted to do. It’s your time to shine. 
                                                                                                  • Save your cash: Bundle an affordable hotel and flight with your solo vacation package and spend that cash on activities instead. You’ll have a comfy room to spread out in and plenty left over to treat yourself to a night out on the town.

                                                                                                  A room of one’s own
                                                                                                  You won’t have to spend time putting together the perfect itinerary, because we do almost all the work for you. We have vacations for solo travelers that include flight and hotel. All you have to do is click, pay and get your bags ready.
