One of the best resources available for solo travelers that are US citizens who are safety minded is the US State Department Travel website.
The US State Department Travel Website is a Great Resource for the Solo Traveler
I have poured over all the different sections of the site and impart some of this knowledge base to you on the new episode of my solo travel podcast. The US State Department Travel checklist, the services offered to Americans overseas, profiles of countries and international cities, safety tips—all this and more is on the site, and I give you ideas of how to use this valuable information in your own travels. I know that safety—concerns about safety are top of mind for our listeners and most people considering solo travel. Use this show to plan ahead and feel prepared.
