When you're planning a trip, what's the first thing you look for? Are you visiting family, friends, or just going for an adventure?

No matter what you're reason is, you're going to need to look for things to do.

That's why websites like TripAdvisor are great! You can check out things to do, places to eat, shows to watch, they pretty much cover everything. Best part is, they allow users to give ratings on everything. So you get to see what others had to say before you show up.

But most of the time, you're not vacationing in your own backyard. So it doesn't ever strike you to look up your own area on a site like TripAdvisor. But we did.
