Massachusetts City Named A Best Place For Solo Travel
There are some major benefits to taking a trip by yourself. The solitude gives you time to clear your mind and gather your thoughts. And it also enables you create your own schedule, taking in the sights you set out for. Fifty Grande published a report that details America’s best places for solo travel, and a Massachusetts city made the list.
To compile this information, Fifty Grande conducted a solo travel survey. They found that “52% of respondents said they planned to take a solo trip before the end of the year and 64% of them planned to take that trip in America.” Furthermore, they found that 40% of those that participated in their survey answered “10” on a scale of 1-10, on how comfortable they were to travel alone. 83% said answered a 7 or above.
Other interesting items to note were, 89% of the people had already taken a solo trip. The main reason was to “explore a new place and/or immerse in a local culture.” 22.9% said the reason they travel alone was because it was “more fun when I’m 100% in control.”
Lastly 52% of people plan on traveling solo before the end of the year, and mostly within the United States, Fifty Grande shows.
Massachusetts is filled with areas that are prime for solo travel exploring. You can go hiking in the Berkshires, surf the south shore, or go visit the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield. Nonetheless, there is one city in the Bay State, that is the best for solo travel. It might be obvious.
It’s fitting that the home of the freedom trail is the Massachusetts city that was named best for solo travel. The city’s layout is very conducive to exploring. In fact, you can get a lot done in one day. The duck boat tours, Segway’s, and historical walking tours along the capital can all be enjoyed solo. You can pull up a chair and grab a delicious Italian meal in the North End before heading across town to catch a ball game at the legendary Fenway Park. If you’re looking for a solo trip, tell your friends: Boston is a great destination to try.
