Knowing the local hotspots in a destination you’re visiting can help you fill your itinerary with authentic finds and hidden gems.

TripAdvisor has just launched a Check-Index, showcasing which areas travelers and locals frequent most often in major tourism destinations across the globe.

Using mobile check-ins at locations ranging from restaurants to attractions and hotels, the travel site has put together a list that showcases where tourists’ and locals’ interests overlap, and the alternative finds locals enjoy that often aren’t on tourists’ travel itineraries.

From San Francisco to Berlin, here are the spots travelers and locals visit most in popular cities.
