Short Notice Solo Travel

Jump to last reply

Just saw this 2011 post and feel I am in the same position now as this woman was back then. Her wish list almost exactly mirrors mine (except for the fishing part.)

I’m about to be 55 in a couple of weeks. I a married for 25 years. I have a daughter, son in law and dranddaughter who live with me and my husband. I love my family dearly and enjoy spending time with them. However, they can it can be somewhat stressful at times. I just realized that I have a long weekend available this coming weekend to do this. I’ve never solo traveled but find the need To get away. Some place where I can “gain focus and clarity, relax, renew, and care for no one but myself” as stated in the original post.

I live in Westchester County of New York State and would like to be able to drive to a destination within 1-3 hours. My budget is a a bit limited (400 to 600.) I realize this is probably impossible due to the extremely short notice and budget constraints but ANY suggestions would be immensely appreciated...


Would be the ideal setting (at least what I imagine to be ideal)...
-natural
-quiet
-private
-serene
-safe
-a view from my room so incredibly beautiful that this element alone would daily leave me in awe.
-**Most importantly, I need to see, hear, feel... Water.....beautiful crystal clear water, be it a stream, beach, lagoon, river or lake.

Not necessities, but would enjoy:
-massage
-fishing (would love to learn to fly fish)
-waterfalls
-location considered to be one of the most beautiful spots in the world
-optional local excursions

*I'm a sappy, sentimental visual type, moved my the simplest things.

Any suggestion greatly appreciated. I'm determined to take this trip and do the necessary work to finally...take care of me.
