Popular Destinations, Beyond Guidebooks
Taking another look at popular destinations from an expert's point of view, "Park Secrets" premieres tonight on the Travel Channel. The new series shows secret adventures that we might not see in the guidebooks, along with great places to stay, eat and play.
In the premiere episode, "Bright Lights, Big City," viewers explore parks hiding in plain sight in some of America's favorite big cities. Featured in the fast-paced show are Greek temples and spicy BBQ in Nashville; pancakes, bears and a secret farm in Boston; and popsicles and voyeurism on an elevated rail line in New York.
Another episode, "Private Islands," explores more of the best, unknown and secluded getaways that everyone can take. Not only for the rich and famous, "Park Secrets" points out that with the right tricks we can turn an island based-retreat into our own private getaway.
The six episode "Park Secrets" series premieres tonight with both of these episodes back-to-back with "Bright Lights, Big City" at 8:00 p.m. and "Private Islands" 8:30 p.m., ET/PT.
