Hey! Welcome to San FranSolo, a blog by a Boston girl fumbling through SF. My name is Caitlin and I’m happy you’re here!

Like many other people living in SF, I moved here alone, knowing essentially no one. And while there are so many of us Bay Area rookies here, I realized that there aren’t many resources out there for people looking to do things alone.

I mean there are a plethora of resources out there for people looking to meet other people. Whether it’s MeetUp or one of the many dating apps or random Facebook book events, there are ample opportunities to meet others.

Yes, this is a good thing. And yes, I use many of these things


I feel it is so important to be able to do things by yourself. This is an incredible city, full of endless opportunities for exploration and adventures, but if you’re constantly avoiding events or trips because you have nobody to join you, well, you’re going to miss out on a lot.

So, what I want to do is provide a resource for people like me, who are looking for things to do, regardless of whether or not they have a companion. I picture this blog being two parts reviews/suggestions/tips for your own solo adventures and one part journal/personal posts about the highs and lows of being the new kid.

Have any recommendations for me? Want to join me on an adventure? Send me an email (SFScaitlin@gmail.com) or connect with me via Instagram (@cdefran20).
