News - PARKS 15-Jun-2022
This week, Tripadvisor unveiled its "Best of the Best Things to Do" in 11 categories, including the top world and US attractions, based on Tripadvisor's reviewers. These lists based on reviews tend to be useful because it doesn't necessarily just show what people are reviewing positively, but also what's being reviewed negatively and not showing up on them.
According to Tripadvisor, the Best Things to Do awards "are determined based on the quality and quantity of traveler reviews and ratings for experiences, tours, activities and attractions on Tripadvisor ... from May 1, 2021, through April 30, 2022, specific to each award subcategory, as well as an additional editorial process.
