Travel for single Women

Single women thinking about a vacation should consider: Is the destination safe for solo travelers; does it have attractions and points of interest specific to women; and does the destination allow a chance to get away and unwind, while including the right amount of excitement? If you are planning a vacation, you can find a number of travel destinations for single women in the U.S. and the Caribbean, a few of which stand out from the rest.
Martha's Vineyard is a quiet, bucolic island just off the Massachusetts coast. It has a small year-round population, but it's a tourist draw in the summer, with many cozy bed-and-breakfast establishments for visitors. Crime here is virtually non-existent, and visitors can tour the island on bikes or scooters.
Cape Cod is the part of eastern Massachusetts that curls up around Cape Cod Bay. This quiet part of the country is home to great seafood museums and more than 500 miles of coastline with sandy beaches. Single women will like the many antique shops, artists' studios, and the bike-riding and whale-watching. Cape Cod residents are famously gracious to tourists, and no solo traveler will ever feel alone.
Laguna Beach started as an artists' community and still retains that feel, with many galleries and art shops. The beaches are broad and sandy, with a strong culture of beach activity and sports, and women will find bike-riding, rollerblading and even yoga classes near the ocean. The location of the city allows for easy day trips to San Diego or Los Angeles.
West Hollywood is an ideal place for women traveling alone, offering incredibly unique experiences in a safe setting. You can walk the famous Rodeo Drive, shopping - or at least window shopping - at the famously exclusive stores here. A drive down Sunset Boulevard leads to Beverly Hills, where visitors can drive the winding streets and take in the incredible homes. The Getty Center just west of this part of Los Angeles is an art and culture center, perched on top of a mountain and with free admission.
Washington, D.C. is the nation's capital, and it offers a lot to women traveling solo. The Smithsonian Museum Complex is free, with more than a dozen museums, an arboretum, botanical gardens and a zoo for no admission. Most of the major monuments and museums are in the northwest section of town, which is very safe, and a place where tourists feel very comfortable. A solo visitor can take advantage of one of many shows at the Kennedy Center's several venues.
Atlanta, the jewel of the south, is a very cosmopolitan city in Georgia. You can enjoy many points of interest, including the world's largest aquarium, a Coca-Cola museum and several art museums. The MARTA train and bus system gets tourists into most parts of the city.
St. John, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, is very remote, reachable only by boat from the larger St. Thomas. Crime here is negligible, so solo women can enjoy exploring the different beaches, each of which offer incredible snorkeling. Everything in the main town of Cruz Bay is walkable, and you can take taxis out to the beaches and trails if you would like to avoid renting a car.

Where should single women travel and should they travel alone? | Yahoo Answers
Panama la Vieja(Old Panama), a Spanish fortress that was destroyed by Scottish pirate Henry Morgan is a really cool place to visit. I would suggest however, that you do not go to Panama alone.
