I’m planning to do my first-ever solo trip to New York for 5/6 days towards. I’ve been to New York once years ago and loved it! I was wondering if anyone could share their experience about solo traveling and what it was like. Some people have told me to go for it and others have said that NYC is not the place to go solo. I plan to do a lot of traditional tourist things, possibly do a day trip to one of the neighboring states and see a show. Most of the things I want to do is during the day, although I’m quite worried about eating in restaurants alone etc. If anyone could give me some advice/tips that would be great.Posted: June 26, 2023
I lived in NYC for a few years so I’m biased, but it’s the best! Lots of museums to visit and of course great restaurants and bars. I loved going to the West Village. If you’re worried about eating alone, maybe check out one of the food markets (Chelsea Market and Gotham West Market come to mind).
I live in NYC and I think it’s a great city to do things alone. There are always people around and lots of things to do! I would recommend checking out the East Village, Bryant Park and Dumbo. Go for it!
