Travel site Trazzler has raised $750,000 in funding, according to an SEC filing. The company features short recommendations of things to do in cities around the world. Conceptually, it sounds similar to Nextstop, a travel review site launched by several Google (NSDQ: GOOG) alums earlier this year, which also features short reviews, although Trazzler pays some of its contributors.

The startup counts Twitter co-founders Biz Stone and Evan Williams as its founding advisors — something that appears to come across in its stated mission to answer the question, “Where should I go?” (Twitter, of course, now answers “What’s happening?” a variation on its initial “What are you doing?”) And the idea behind the company was developed in the “original Twitter kitchen,” according to its about page.

The filing was first noted by Silicon Tap earlier today; Founder Adam Rugel confirmed it to us saying that the money comes from an “all-star team of angel investors.” He said more details would be forthcoming.
