There has been a spike in the interest surrounding solo-women travel in the recent years. Women are exploring destinations (and themselves) more than ever and going solo seems to give flight to this freedom. Los Angeles is one of the best places for solo women travelers on the planet. As we gear up for Women’s Day 2018, here’s a look at some amazing things to do for solo women travelers in Los Angeles, the city of stars.
Islands in the Stream
What’s more refreshing than heading off to a secluded island? Catalina may not exactly be secluded, but the island has adventure written all over it. From ocean-view hikes, kayaking and plenty of bed and breakfasts, this quaint island is a nice getaway without being too inconvenient or expensive. See some whales, eat a taco, introspect and remember that life can be beautiful and perfect sometimes too.
Skyslide into love (with yourself)!
With 360-degree views from the tallest open-air observation deck in California and the thrill of an outdoor glass slide nearly 1,000 feet above downtown Los Angeles, it is no wonder that Forbes named it one of the 16 “Coolest Things to Do in Los Angeles” in 2016.

View from Malibu Creek State Park
Los Angeles is surrounded by mountains on three sides and by the ocean on other – which means easy access to nature and camping a short distance from the city! Malibu Creek State Park features camping hiking, fishing, bird watching, mountain biking, rock climbing and horseback riding opportunities and is a popular destination for campers and hikers who want to experience the beauty of mountains and canyons. With over 8,000 acres of rolling tallgrass plains, oak savannahs and dramatic peaks, it is no wonder many call it “The Yosemite of Southern California”.
