Traversing The Great White North Alone
Canada is a great option for women intent on travelling on their own. The east and west coasts are very different when it comes to landscape and architecture, and the locals have gained a reputation worldwide for being unfailingly polite. Herewith the best cities to see across the Great White North as a solo traveller!
Vibrant Vancouver, British Columbia
Vancouver is the perfect city for solo sojourners. It has an excellent infrastructure for public transport, alongside the world’s longest automated, driverless, train system. There are further incredibly economical hostels located very centrally, and some of the most beautiful parks in the world.
Cool neighbourhoods like Commercial Drive, Main Street, and Gastown make for interesting exploring, and must-see attractions include some of the local casinos, the Granville Island Public Market and Science World. Bear in mind, however, that locals recommend that you avoid the intersection of Hastings and Main Street if you are on your own at night.
Have Fun in Halifax, Nova Scotia
The best thing about Halifax, Nova Scotia may well be the dandy day trips available straight from the city. You can pay Peggy’s Cove and Peggy’s Point Lighthouse a visit, with the latter being the most photographed lighthouse in the whole country, and take in Mahone Bay and Lunenburg, a World Heritage Site. Head to one of Halifax’s many breweries, historic sites, and museums, and fuel up with cheap eats along Fenwick, Oxford, and Robie streets. When you need a break from sightseeing you can always play online slots in Canada and kick back and enjoy the beautiful scenery!
Take Your Time in Toronto, Ontario
The largest metropolis in Canada is also one of the safest and most diverse, with 50% of the Toronto population not born in Canada. It is a wonderful city to explore on your own, and you can make use of the public transport system the city sports, with light rail, a subway system, buses, and streetcars all being available.
Worthwhile attractions include the CN Tower, the Distillery District, the CN Tower, and Toronto Island, and, of course, the world-famous Niagara Falls, located nearby.
Walk Whistler, British Columbia
Not only is Whistler a more-than-doable day trip from Vancouver, it is perfect for females travelling on their own as well, especially the more adventurous among us. Thanks to much of the town’s staff being seasonal, the local hostels are always jam-packed with fellow travellers ready to team up for a wander through Whistler.
Depending on what season you visit, there is much to do in Whistler, with the Whistler Blackcomb, one of the finest ski resorts in the whole of North America, being one of the biggest attractions in winter. If you are there in the summertime make a point of paying one of the pristine lakes a visit, and don’t miss out on some of the heavenly hikes available.
Safe and Secure Solo Travel
If you are a woman, or even a bit older and easing into retirement and intending to explore some of the most beautiful places in the world on your own, you will find that Canada is not a top pick for nothing. It really suits females travelling alone, and you are likely to experience a life-changing adventure on your trip.
