Mama & Baby Bear in Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge
Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge
Proves Yelp Can’t Be Trusted
If you were searching for unbiased opinions about whether or not you should visit Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge during your trip to Outer Banks, North Carolina, chances are you’d turn to respected sites like TripAdvisor or Yelp to see what other travelers have to say about it.
But Alligator River’s Yelp reviews, which average 2.5 stars out of a possible 5, prove that uninformed opinions on the Internet aren’t nearly as valuable or insightful as those of the experts (and by “experts,” I mean someone who actually does the requisite research before planning a trip).
“We went for the bear watch,” writes Yelp reviewer Chad E., “and drove and drove and drove, saw half a dozen little dots that may have been bears, or could have been employees in black, and then came back. It was pretty dull, really.” Alicia F. writes, “If zero stars were an option, I’d pick that.” And Watrbb W. says “Bottom line for me is that I will never go there again, unless someone can point out to me the ‘right’ way to see and experience it?”
So Watrbb W., this one’s for you…
