Thanks to the more than 20 million TripAdvisor members like you from around the world, we’re excited to announce that TripAdvisor has reached the 50 million reviews and opinions milestone. That means that not only does TripAdvisor have more user-generated content than any other travel site, but that we have a pretty awesome (and active) traveler community sharing their travel experiences on our site each and every day. In fact, TripAdvisor users currently publish 25 new contributions every single minute!
Other TripAdvisor content fun facts:
- The first review on TripAdvisor was published on December 11, 2001 on the Roost Lodge in Vail, Colorado
- The most reviewed property in the world is the Luxor Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada, currently with more than 6,100 reviews
