- Package Tours
Whether it's to Club Med, the Caribbean, Europe or Asia, there's plenty of package tours designed for singles, and better yet, single Boomers (check out this travel site just for us)! And the beauty of this option is everything is planned out for you...no chance of dining or touring alone, unless of course you're getting so comfortable in your own skin that you prefer a little alone time....
This is a separate type of package option that specializes in trips designed for learning/special interests, whether it's ecological or other types like historic cities in Europe, wine tasting in Italy, photography in Alaska, bird watching in Cairns, cooking in France, or some other interest, you will be sharing your time with fellow enthusiasts, both coupled and single, and designed to do things as a group.
- Use a Travel Agent
Seasoned agents will provide you with your many options for solo travel - just tell him/her what you like/want to do, and they'll set it all up for you (at no cost to you). Remember to ask them about reducing or eliminating any extra costs sometimes associated with solo travel, like those imposed by cruise lines mentioned above.

Women moreso than men are hesitant to travel alone, primarily for safety concerns. But worry not, there's many ways for a lady to travel safely and without stigma (that solo traveling men experience far less...yep, some forms of sexism are alive and kicking...) Here's a handy article to get you through your concerns intact.
So wait no more. If you have the itch to travel, you can do it all by yourself...who knows, you may find you like it better!
