Need ideas for a solo vacation - I have no preference for rural/camping vs luxurious hotel stays. I’ve considered LA/NYC/Denver/Miami - I could go anywhere. Help me decide where a solo traveler 28M should spend 5 nights?

depends when you're thinking but Denver is great. Rocky Mountain national park has some of the best camping I've ever experienced. The city is really fun as well.

You need reservations for the park now, and I imagine Labor Day will be packed even if there any spots still available

Iceland. It’s beautiful. Rent a car and drive the golden circle route. You might see northern lights if you go late September. I traveled on my own. Locals are friendly. It’s safe and clean. Took group tours at night for northern lights viewing. There’s a fun game of thrones tour to locations where they filmed scenes.

If you like camping- I love Cardiff-by-the-sea north of San Diego. You can pitch a tent overlooking the waves, grab food at the store across the street- great “getting away” vibes. I used to go every year- sit in the sunset and have wine, read a book, and fall asleep under the stars to the sound of the surf. It’s been a while, though.

You have to get a campsite reservation, which is pretty competitive.

Glacier national park and do a drive out west! That's my trip next week!

I love Denver for hiking. If you’re feeling up to it, banf national park in Canada. Look up the pictures, BEAUTIFUL! I have been dying to go

I did a solo trip to Miami and stayed in wynwood! Such great weather
