Watching The Travel Channel is a great way to get new ideas for vacations, spas, restaurants, activities, and resorts, both across the US and internationally. I really enjoy watching Samantha Brown. I love that Samantha often travels to little know hidden gems and gives us advice on local hotspots. Another benefit is watching her interact with local residents.

Her shows are always entertaining because of her quirky, upbeat personality. Watching her show, she makes you feel like you are with her at the destination, not just watching the program at home. I feel like I always get a great glimpse of new areas that I want to travel to, especially internationally.
