Love it or hate it, Yelp remains the go-to spot for local restaurant reviews. Save for the snark and chronic complainers, it’s a pretty useful source when you’re completely stumped on where to eat or drink. It’s also a wildly useful (and free!) tour guide when you’re scouring a new area. And, of course, you’ll find listings for other types of venues as well, including boutiques, salons, pharmacies and healthcare clinics, among others. Perhaps the best part about Yelp is that you don’t need an account to use it; the listings and reviews are accessible to all.
