Unfortunately, I have a lot of experience at this. if you must go it alone, Southern California is not a bad place to be for solo excursions and day trips.

Here are 4 things you can easily and safely enjoy doing all by yourself.


An obvious choice. Not only can you enjoy the warm weather and ocean breezes, but you can also swim, run, fish, relax and people watch. Depending on which beach you choose -it could be full on entertaining.

My go to beach of choice is at the Oceanside Pier. Oceanside has been getting a lot of press lately as it’s becoming a top destination for surfing. Recent additions of several local Resort Hotels are enticing more and more tourists to the area.

There are nearby eateries and shopping within short walking distance making it a great solo destination where you can relax, get some sun, food and more.

Safety patrols are very visible, and I’ve never personally had a bad experience in the area. I go often!


Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography bills itself as fun with a side of science. At your own pace you can engage with interactive exhibits and come face to face with exciting sea creatures.

Exhibits you will want to catch are- Sea dragons & Seahorses, Hall of Fishes, Shark Shores, and the Giant Kelp Forest. Birch Aquarium is located at 2300 Expedition Way, La Jolla, CA 92037

There are always “side shows” going on- live music, dancers, street artisans entertaining the crowds. Seaport Village is located at 849 W Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101

Whale Watching & Cruises

Launch your solo morning or afternoon on a 1–2-hour whale watching tour. These cruises depart from several locations throughout Southern California like Newport Beach, San Diego, and Long Beach. If you’re lucky you’ll catch whales in their natural environment. You are also likely to see Dolphins, Sea Lions, and Seals.

Even if you don’t see whales on your trip, you can still enjoy sailing and sightseeing on a harbor cruise. Most boats have a snack area, and some serve full on meals and offer chartered lunch and dinner cruises.

Be sure to plan ahead and check for any Covid-19 pandemic interruptions or requirements.
