Go Your Own Way

There’s truly no better opportunity to get to know who you are than traveling by yourself.

Start putting yourself first: Ludlow, Vt.
SOLO APPEAL: You’ll never feel alone at the scenic Green Mountain at Fox Run resort—a wellness retreat where 95 percent of all guests are solo travelers, and there are no guys allowed. Surrounded by forest (and friendly fellow attendees), you’ll find the kind of sanctuary where you can pursue a plan to prioritize your own well-being.
WHAT TO DO: Green Mountain provides plenty of scheduled programming like nature hikes, Pilates, Zumba, meditation, spa treatments, stress-management classes, snowshoeing and kayaking (weather depending, of course). And if you want to go beyond the resort, the charming village of Woodstock is a pretty half-hour drive away with lots of quaint shops—perfect for picking up souvenirs.
WHERE TO STAY: Sprawling Green Mountain has single, double and triple accommodations, so if you’re looking to save money, you can bunk with up to two other program participants. The resort staff will match you with roommates. (From $2,599 for an all-inclusive six-night stay, fitwoman.com)
WHERE TO EAT: Three healthy meals a day are included with your stay, and the resort even offers cooking demos and classes on mindful eating.
HOW TO GET THERE: Major carriers fly into Burlington, Vt.; Albany, N.Y.; or Hartford, Conn. From there, Green Mountain is a scenic two-hour drive away.
