On vacation and want to avoid touristy spots? Or perhaps you're looking for cheap eats in a new neighborhood. Yelp recently launched Wordmap, a tool that searches reviews for a handful of words like "hipster," "patio," and "bacon" and plots them on a map so you can find (or avoid) certain areas. Wordmap is currently available in 11 U.S. cities, plus London, Paris, & Toronto.
