Stockholm after 5 pm


I'll be arriving in Stockholm on a Saturday, the day before the RS Scandinavia tour begins, and looking for suggestions for things to do after the museums and shops close. I don't like clubs and being a young-ish (mid-30s) female traveling alone, I don't feel very comfortable going to a bar. I'm excited about the extended daylight and expect to just wander for a while, but I'd appreciate any more specific suggestions, even if just a suggestion about which direction in which to wander.

I travelled to Stockholm by myself and felt safe the whole time. Because of the long days, you can, of course, venture outside and get great pictures. But my first night, after walking all around town and the old town, I ended up at the Sky Bar; it was quite lovely. I know you said that you do not feel so comfortable going to a bar but it is more a restaurant/lounge...but lots of hotel guest are on their own and it was easy to strike a conversation and the view is nice.
It is listed in the link below and others:

On which date? There may be some special events.

A walk through Gamla Stan is always nice. On Stortorget, there are some outdoor cafes. I like Chokladkoppen and Kaffeekoppen which both have lovely baked goods, coffee, and light meals.

Any walk along the water is nice. The pathway along the water on Djurgården is quite pretty.

Some of the museums are open late. The Fotografiska Museum is open until 11 pm if you enjoy artistic photography. It has a cafe with a very nice view. The Abba Museum is open until 8pm (last entrance 6:30 pm). If you are an Abba fan, it is seriously fun (although you may be too young to enjoy the kitsch). There are interactive exhibits where you can be in an Abba video or sing along karaoke style to become the 5th Abba.

The amusement park (Gröna Lund) is open.

Report back if you have any special interests and I may be able to provide something more interesting.
