Introduction ...

Whether we're planning a trip and want to make reservations or still at home and looking for a place to eat, we usually start by visiting the TripAdvisor website. Once on their website we search for what's available, then check the recommendations and experiences of other people.

Although there are many ways of searching the TripAdvisor website, we prefer to start with the TripAdvisor Tourism page. On the Tourism page you'll find a quick overview of the community, with links to restaurants, lodging, flights, rentals and nearby attractions.

In addition, you'll find a link to the TripAdvisor Forum for Craig. If you have a question about your travel plans, post it on their Forum and see if others can give you an answer.

All of this can be found on the TripAdvisor's Tourism page for Craig.
