If you’re looking for inspiration for your next family vacation, you’ll be excited to learn that TripAdvisor is getting a huge update that’s about to revolutionize the way you think of travel planning.Move over Instagram, there’s a new social network in town that’s all about epic vacation views. Read on to get the full scoop.

TripAdvisor has long been one of the best sources to hit up for real user reviews of hotels, attractions and just about everything travel-related. Now, the website is getting a major revamp that includes a social media component.

Besides the traditional reviews for which the site is known, TripAdvisor will now allow users to create profiles that they can use to upload photos and videos of vacations. When you’re logged on to the site, you’ll be able to scroll through a feed that features posts from other users, as well as influencers and travel industry companies.

The Instagram-meets-Pinterest feed will feature hotels, restaurants and attractions meant to inspire users to plan their vacation destinations. When you’re trying to decide where to go over the summer, you can simply scroll and bookmark any and all posts of interest to save for when you’re ready to book that destination.

The new features will roll out across the website later this year—just in time to start planning for spring break.
