I’m still relatively new to the area that I’m living in right now, and having only been here for five months, there’s still a lot more to learn about what’s going on around here. There are countless restaurants, stores, and other fun places for me to spend my money, and instead of just experiencing these locations in a trial and error manner, I’d feel more confident about what I was getting myself into if I knew how other people felt about each specific location. Reviews mean a lot, especially when they’re coming at you in a brutally honest way from regular consumers like you and I. Yelp is progressively becoming a great catalyst for these reviews.

One of the nice things about Yelp is that it brings these reviews down to the local level. A lot of these services seem to focus on one or two big cities within each state and they then expect you to do the work of figuring out what’s close to you and what isn’t. With Yelp, you’ll be able to search by using your address, city, or zip code. The categories are varied, and the reviews are actually worth paying attention to. In addition to the standard user reviews and ratings, you’ll also find detailed information about the business, and you’ll even get recommendations for other businesses that you might like. With Yelp by your side, you can’t go wrong.
