I am a female solo traveler, will be 71 this year, currently have severe cabin fever and am looking for suggestions to match up with my solo traveling preferences for my next trip. Thought I would ask here as I've found suggestions from people who have never travelled solo and/or who also have met up with family, friends living in "X" city [thus having built-in tour guides] and/or have rented cars for their trips [thus spending only a day or so in a particular city and going to areas only accessible by car] to be very interesting, but not especially helpful.
 a highly/easily walkable city with a nearby airport [have found with aging that the trips getting there and back home are so exhausting that I can't contemplate taking a train or yet another plane when I arrive in "X" country];
 one with good public transportation for day trips
 and excellent spots for bad weather days
 one that is safe enough to be able to wander into the evening - not super late, but definitely up to ten PM-ish.
With thanks for any suggestions. Oh, the two weeks will be in early-mid October.Edited: 14 January 2014, 20:55
