AKRON, Ohio – Five years ago, when he was planning a family trip to Hawaii, Dr. Bruce Cohen checked out the travel review site TripAdvisor to get some recommendations on places to eat.
Today, Cohen, a pediatric neurologist at Akron Children’s Hospital, is the one giving the advice – hundreds of times a year, for restaurants, hotels and attractions, as well as the occasional off-the-beaten-path destination.
“There’s something to see in every city, no matter how short you stay,” said Cohen, who recently discovered the small 9/11 Memorial while passing through Boston’s Logan airport, and became the first person to review it. “It is humbling remembering the time (8:14) and reading the names of those that lost their lives that day,” he wrote in 2017.
That’s just one of hundreds of his online reviews, which span the globe – from India to Dubai to Hawaii to his hometown of Twinsburg.
