Trip Advisor

Before I ever hit the road on a trip advisortrip, this is the first place I go to see what’s available in the area. Trip Advisor is a great source for restaurants, lodging, places to see, etc. Reviews are posted by people (like me) that give you insider information as a way to help you make better decisions about spending your hard-earned money. Plus, you may find some cool places to see that you didn’t even know existed!

Taking a trip in days gone by meant using a travel agent or service like AAA or Amoco Motor Club, but if you let your subscription lapse (I’m not mentioning any names here),  one often resorted to using telephone books, advertising pages in magazines or books as travel guides.  Even with best intentions, you mostly likely had no clue what the hotel on E. 15th Street looked like, whether or not it was up to your standards, or even if a train ran through its backyard. Internet has changed the way we see the world. Now, you can easily find information on just about any place on earth. You can even do aerial or street views of places to check out the locale. To enhance the wonders of the WWW, Trip Advisor can really help make the experience better.

What will you find on the website?  It’s a giant network of fellow travelers helping each other enjoy the world. Search for a place, restaurant, hotel, bed and breakfast, museum, etc., and read all about it. You’ll see what others say about location, cleanliness, food quality, and whether or not it’s really worth driving one hour out of your way to view the largest anthill in America. You can even create a Trip Advisor account and add your own two cents about the places you visit around the world or in your own backyard. Do enough reviews and earn little thank you gifts!

Look for the Trip Advisor decal at places you frequent, which shows that someone has said something nice about them! Get out there and explore your world and share what you find!
