Where are good places to vacation alone? Looking for a generally safe place, that's both fun and relaxing. I'm also a foodie so good local restaurants are a plus!!

Coeur d’Alene is beautiful, downtown has good restaurants, the lake is gorgeous. Lots of outdoor recreation, right in town, including hiking Tubbs Hill.

Just looked it up, it looks amazing! What's the best time of year to visit? @cuebowgrl 

Spring and summer, although if you are a skier, winter has plenty of options, fairly close to Coeur d’Alene (also known as CDA). We are having a cool and rainy spring, summers here are usually warm, but not terribly hot, other than a few days.

How about a city with a lot of museums, or botanical gardens? I enjoy visiting both solo! 

I love museums! Somewhere that does city tours would be perfect as well @thecrispycrab

I've done two solo international trips before and loved them both. The first solo trip I went on was to the South of France and the Italian Coast and it was so beautiful, so relaxing, and of course, amazing food. I was pretty young at the time so I stayed in a hostel and made some friends and explored with them at some points in the trip. At other points, I got an Airbnb to have some relaxing alone time. What I found interesting was that often times a dinner, I would be sat with other solo travelers at the small restaurants and got to meet a lot of interesting people! It was a great experience. The other trip was to Paris and it's definitely solo travel friendly!  

Those trips sound so fun! I may have to get a passport ASAP. It's so cool that you were able to meet other solo-travelers. as well. Also, I miss the days when Airbnb were a lot more affordable 😞 @surfingob

I love Paris and while it is a romantic city there is so much to do and see all on your own.  The food is amazing and almost everyone speask english.  Super easy to get around and you can rent a small air bnb in the Marais for not much money at all.

Thats such a good point that most people speak english! Its always a fear of being taken advantage of because of a language barrier @Margeaux_H
