Hi, I'm a Finnish lady travelling alone first time ever to NYC at christmas time, and in fact this will be my first trip to USA aswell. As it might be a bit boring to spend christmas alone, I'd be happy to find someone who will be in the same situation and willing to spend time with me, maybe go for a dinner, explore the city or something. If you'll be in NYC at christmas and would be ready to spend some time with me, let me know.

Your hotel might have some sort of gala or whatever planned. Also check if they have some shared tours you can sign up for. You may meet someone at your hotel at breakfast too.

  • * If you have not booked a place to stay maybe stay at the YMCA. Probably more solo travelers in the Y.

Fill out your profile so someone who may be interested will know if male or female and if you are retired or a student or in between.

Finland. At least you will be used to cold weather.

(I personally would have chosen some dude ranch in a warmer location!!)

Good luck.

I’m a Scottish female and I’m going to be alone also during the Christmas period, I’ve never travelled alone but really want to see NYC and I’m also looking for someone to potentially buddy up with to sight see!

Hey Mary,

I’m in the exact same situation and will be doing the same thing over Christmas and New Year. Not sure what to expect from alone travelling in NYC but also keen to meet people in the same situation.

Merry Christmas ladies and gents - I've just signed up on this site for my upcoming trip to Asia and found you all. I'm a native New Yorker (female) who currently lives in Georgia and is in town to visit family. I'd be happy to you guys in the city tomorrow to walk around (as a New Yorker, sight-seeing is typically only done when friends/relatives are visiting, so it's still a treat). Many shops will be closed as it will be Christmas day, but I'm sure there are still plenty to see. Let me know!
