HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Summer is travel season and if you’re planning a getaway, you have some great options for advice.

Most people have heard of TripAdvisor or Yelp but Trippy is another website to help you figure out the dos and dont’s at your next destination.

Trippy’s goal is to offer reviews and recommendations in a casual, social environment.

Here’s how it works. Once you create a profile, you can ask a travel question of your own or answer someone else’s. You can also expand your questions (or answers) to a larger audience by pushing them to existing social networks including Facebook or Twitter.

You can also follow specific Trippy users, if, for example, you find someone especially knowledgable in a destination you’re interested in.

In addition to us regulars, you’ll also find occasional responses from celebrities including foodie host Anthony Bourdain and celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe.
