Eleanor Berman knows what it's like to travel alone; she has done it often enough. In Traveling Solo, she offers advice and ideas for more than 250 vacations. Among the many options are going on a learning vacation, participating in a volunteer program or registering at a cooking school.

In addition, she has chapters devoted to the singles scene, women-only travel and 50-and-older travel.

She offers general advice about traveling alone, from how to get the best table at a fancy restaurant ("most tables are designed for two," she reminds us) to her personal impressions on four cities that she finds especially solo-travel friendly (Amsterdam, the Netherlands; Montreal; Paris; and New York).
