I use Tripadvisor to plan our entire trip, anytime we go anywhere. It is the website I use for trip planning 99% of the time. I love being able to read other people's reviews before booking hotel rooms, while planning which sites to see, and before picking which restaurants to eat at. It helps me narrow down what options are best for our budget for each particular trip. For the most part, reviews by other Tripadvisor followers have been pretty accurate. I always take what I read there with a grain of salt, because everyone's experience is going to be a little different. Tripadvisor is definitely worth checking out next time you plan a trip!
