Planned a beach vacation? Chances are you're not looking to do a great deal of sightseeing on your next trip. If you've planned a city break, on the other hand, it's usually a good idea to start your research beforehand. If you've already made your itinerary for your next trip, great! If not, TripAdvisor is always a good place to start.
