New York
The city so nice they named it twice, has come a long way in the past few decades. While the '70s and '80s were pretty damn shady and not exactly tourist friendly, no matter your gender, that’s no longer the case. No matter what political party you belong to or your feelings on Rudy Giuliani, he really did one hell of job in cleaning up New York by cracking down on crime and working on urban reconstruction. The mayors that followed, although far more liberal, continued the trend of making NYC one of the safest cities in the world. From museums to smaller galleries, to Broadway shows, to managing to get into a trendy restaurant, there really is no end to the activities that a woman, traveling alone, can find. Also, don’t believe the hype: New Yorkers are some of the friendliest people on the planet – just as long as you don’t stop in the middle of the sidewalk to take a picture. It’s always best to step off to the side to do that.

Oh, and don’t forget to make your way over to Brooklyn, either by metro or walking across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. When it comes to art and food, Brooklyn definitely gives NYC a run for its money.
