Discover the city where you can hop aboard a tour boat and come face to face with Orca Whales, or how about the city where you can kiss a fish. These five cities are safe for solo women and we promise you will have a great time.
5. Ottawa, Ontario
The capital of Canada is full of tourists year-round, making it easy to blend in as a solo female traveler. It also helps that this city is loaded with wine bars, cozy live music venues and awesome local restaurants where you wont be the only one dining alone. Many business people come to Ottawa and it’s not unusual to see lone travelers around the city. Visiting Parliament Hill is a must, and if you go in the evening as the sun starts to set, be prepared to whip out your camera and catch the money shot. If you happen to be here in the winter, grab a pair of skates and explore the Rideau Canal, just make sure to indulge in a delicious beaver tail pastry. The National Art Gallery also happens to be a favorite with travelers here.
4. Kingston, Ontario
Come to the city of Kingston, known as being one of the safest cities for women to travel to in Canada, as well as being downright safe in general with a very low crime rate. It is here where solo travelers will be able to tour Fort Henry, the only UNESCO World Heritage site in Ontario. Stroll along the Kingston Waterfront stopping to check out local vendors, grab an ice-cream, watch people play in the parks or grab a book and spread out on the grass. Head to the Correctional Service of Canada Museum and take yourself on a self-guided tour through the history of Canada’s Federal Penitentiary System. Unfortunately, Kingston Pen shut down years ago and tours are no longer available, but you can still tour the museum that is housed in the former Warden’s residence there.
