Finding advice, reviews, kids activities, and more from fellow travelers

by Laura on March 9, 2012

Today’s online highlight is one I love and use quite often.  TripAdvisor is filled with millions of reviews and advice from tourists, locals, and travel experts.  If you haven’t been on this site, definitely do so!  It is a fabulous resource.


Things I really like:

–you can subscribe to posts about a certain location

–search for family friendly activities at your upcoming destination.

–ask locals and travelers about hotels and activities

–review advice already given on a tourist spot.

–track airline prices on up to 10 air routes

–sign up for giveaways and special travel deals.

–You can even make your own map of where you’ve traveled and where you want to go.  {Check out mine on the sidebar!}  Makes it easy to find which of your friends can give recommendations on a place you will be visiting.


For on the go…there is also an app for your phone to make mobile reviews and advice so much easier.

We are off to Kauai for an adventure with our kids this spring break.  We used TripAdvisor for figuring out our activities, and reading about tips for our hotel.  It has helped us a lot in planning this trip.  I also used it when I found out about the flooding and storms happening there to see what the forums were chatting about.  Cross your fingers!  You may be seeing posts about entertaining in a hotel room when there is a deluge of rain outside…

Didn’t know about this site and I think it will be very helpful for me. Great for when you move to a new place to live, too.
