Los Angeles: Travelling is perhaps, one of the healthiest addictions one can get hooked on to, especially if it is about travelling solo. Over the years the tourism industry has experienced an upsurge in one segment – women travellers.

Besides outperforming at work, managing the household chores, women have now become the front runners in almost every aspect of life. Travelling solo is liberating, therapeutic, enriching and most importantly a powerful manifestation of their empowered version.

So if you are looking for a place that encompasses all these feelings, then Los Angeles is the place to be. While there are lot of places which offers such experiences, Los Angeles makes it truly memorable to be cherished for a lifetime. It has a lot to offer; stunning landscape, pulsating nightlife and many more for the discerning urban traveller.

Islands in the stream: There is nothing more refreshing than exploring the unexplored islands. The quaint island, Catalina has a lot of adventure activities to offer. From ocean-view hikes, kayaking, this island is a nice and not so expensive gateway. This is a very good place to see some whales in their natural habitat, eat a taco and enjoy some real good solo time in the midst of nature.

Skyslide into love: With a 360-degree panoramic view of the tallest open-air observation deck in California and the thrill to look outside nearly 1000 feet above downtown in Los Angeles, it is no wonder that Forbes named it one of the 16 “Coolest things to do in Los Angeles” in 2016. It is surely one of a lifetime experience that is sure to stay with you.

Horseback to new heights: Satiate the equestrian soul by taking a horseback ride up mount Hollywood to enjoy the panoramic view of the city and bask in the glory of the sunset. You can opt for guided tours provided by Sunset Ranch and travel around the famous Hollywood signage, Griffith Observatory and Downtown Los Angeles.

If you are really lucky on a clear day you might get a glimpse of the Pacific Ocean and the San Fernando Valley. So if you looking for that “me-time” this is truly the place to be.

Go Camping: Surrounded by mountains on three sides and ocean on the other, Los Angeles has a lot of camping sites in the outskirts. Malibu Creek State Park features camping, hiking, fishing, bird watching, mountain biking and the list is endless.

This makes for a popular destination for campers and hikers who want to enjoy a bit of adrenaline rush and soak in nature as much as possible. With over 8000 acres of rolling tall grass plains, oak savannahs and beautiful peaks, it is popular known as “The Yosemite of Southern California”.
