1-Week Solo Traveler (but in relationship) Trip Ideas: Late April/Early May?

So I have a week off between jobs the week of April 28 to May 2nd, and am looking for ideas of where I could go on a trip during that time. Unfortunately my significant other is stuck at work at that time, so if I go anywhere it'll have to be solo and somewhere not strictly a party destination.

I was thinking Toronto as a good friend and my brother is out there and I've never been, but I don't know how the weather is like at that time.

Austin might be cool to check out the restaurants and stuff. As is San Francisco.

I know a friend in Los Angeles/Santa Monica but not sure how much there is to see there by there.

I've been wanting to go NY, Montreal or Chicago but I think I'd want to experience that with the girlfriend.

Other suggestions?

Settled on Toronto/Montreal trip to see brother and friends.

SFO hotels were mostly booked up in the major areas.

I would have said New York, its amazing! and one week is a lot of time to do a lot of things.

Toronto and MTL are good choices as well, not much to really see or do in TO, but MTL has a lot. If you are alone, hostelling is best, I would suggest Planet Traveller in Toronto, Nice, clean, free breakfast and best of all, cheap. M in Montreal, nice, clean and cheap. M also has a sister hostel which is similar, both of them have free breakfast. both those hostels have very friendly and knowledgable staffs. Very good and chill environment.

Yeah I can't really think of much I want to do/see in Toronto. In Montreal, Joe Beef and Au Pied de Couchon are my must-go.

Tentatively I have 3 nights in Toronto, 1 night in Ottawa to see friends, and 4 nights in Montreal, planning to take VIA Rail between cities.

If you don't mind you should rent a car as that is quite easily driven (just boring). I assume you would need a car to get around anyways, especially in Toronto and Montreal.

i did 1 week in NY. I felt that it wasn't long enough. I didn't get to visit/experience stuff on my list. I will have to go back.

I did 5 days in Montreal, and had a blast there. Ya, not much to do in Toronto, unless your a sports fan.

I had similar days at Montreal and New York and I agree.

Make sure when in Montreal go to la banquise for the original Poutine!

YES! la banquise! It's not in the downtown core area, but it was worth going to.

Spent 5 days in NYC last year and I had the same feeling of not having enough time to see/do everything I wanted.

In such an inconspicuous area, but line ups out the door, lol. worth the walk, you see some great buildings and areas as you are walking there, you will often question yourself if you're going in the right direction, worth the wait, definitely worth the wait.

Man. We should gather for revscene solo trip somewhere. I find it hard myself to plan trips with my friends as they have the most stupid vacation schedules given to them.

I went to LA last year for a week. I think if you are alone, places with lots of things to see and go to seems better. Unless you just want to sit back and chill at one place.
