What we're about

This is a group for those interested in travel who are looking for others traveling without partners.

• You may be a solo traveler who prefers to have your own private accommodations, but enjoys traveling in the company of friends or familiar faces.

• You may be a solo traveler looking to find new friends who may be interested in a roommate for your travels.

• You may be a married or attached solo traveler whose spouse is in poor health or doesn't share the same passion you have for travel.

• Or a single, widow or widower traveler.

All are invited and are welcome! We put together a few trips a year & see what kind of interest there is. Please let us know of your interests!

We meet every month or so in a central location for our membership . . . usually a restaurant, so we can enjoy a meal, snack or drink and get to know our fellow solo travelers. We normally meet in the Arden area near the Asheville Airport.

**** We're considering changing our name to CAROLINA SOLO TRAVELERS to be less geographically restricted (WNC for Western North Carolina) as we have members in South Carolina and as far east as Wilmington, NC. ****
