    "For any trip I take, I always check TripAdvisor first - this site has it all, from helpful travel tips to best activities to discussions to low-cost options. I love that I can research the top places and sites, sort by distance or rating, and even book at the lowest cost right through TripAdvisor. This site and the app are invaluable travel tools that just keep getting better."

      "This is good when it comes to find vacation spots for sure. The issue I ran into is that it's an aggregator, so it doesn't have detailed information on the location, which made it very difficult for me to find location with specific features."
