Are you sick of reading travel advice for loved up couples? In this anti-Valentines list we explore 5 trips that are much better to do alone:
1. Go Dating & Clubbing In Las Vegas
If you’re single and visiting Vegas on Valentine’s Day, have no fear. Glam up and head out to one of the speed dating events, where you can squeeze 50 dates into an hour at the Sixth Street Bar & Grill. Then head over to the Moon nightclub for their “Not a Valentine’s Day Party“. Alternatively, f you don’t mind mingling with couples, drown yourself in a delicious cocktail (or two) with a view in one of the cocktail lounges with a view in Las Vegas.
2. Eat Out & Party In New York
Start your evening in New York at Ramen, the one-dish, ramen-only restaurant, which is famous for its isolation booths and allows you to eat your entire meal without any human interaction (food is ordered via a notepad and delivered by a set of hands through a curtained partition). Eat here alone and happy, without feeling like a leper!
After a meal out on your own, join the Boycott Valentine’s Day Pub Run. Organized by the Brooklyn Running Company, you can enjoy a bit of exercise, plus beers at two different Brooklyn pubs.
End the evening at the friendliest valentines party for singles. This very popular upscale party will have 300+ singles and takes place at The DL Rooftop Lounge, 95 Delancey Street.
3. Spa Yourself to Happiness
Try a singles spa holiday which you can book without the usual hefty premium of travelling alone (just google “singles spa holidays” and you will find loads of choices). Expect a friendly and nurturing environment at these trips designed for singles, special room prices, and the supplier will check thats the spa is ‘single friendly’ (with features such as sharing tables at dinner).
In England the Scarlett hotel in Cornwall is specialises in those travelling alone. I also particularly like the Wellbeing booster at the gorgeous Villa Padierna (pictured above) near Malaga in Spain. The healing properties of the spa waters, enriched with sulphur, calcium and magnesium clean impurities, relax the nervous system and ease muscular and skeletal aches and pains. Lovely.
4. Visit the Breakup Museum Ever in Los Angeles
The Museum of Broken Relationships is Los Angeles’ is ultimate anti-Valentine’s Day attraction. This museum on Hollywood Boulevard has everything you need for some personal perspective on relationships. The objects exhibited were donated anonymously from members of the public all over the world amd share stories about the breakdown relationships.
Stay at the fun Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles which offer a very special Valentine’s day daytime pool party Upstairs. They say: “Bring your sweetie or come for cruising”.
5. Book a flight Around The World
Why not explore the whole world. You only need to pay for one seat (which makes around the world tickets eye-wateringly expensive for couples or families who have to pay double or even 4x or 5x the price, having to pay for the entire family). Rejoice in the fact that you only need to pay for the one ticket, and if you travel on overnight flights, you won’t even need to pay for a hotel. My pick of the best Business Class airlines will help you choose the best option if travelling in Business Class. For economy, just pick the cheapest ticket and fly away!
