What is Travel Channel’s Great Weekends with Samantha Brown?
This series serves as the definitive guide to the very best in weekend getaways. From Sundance to Montreal, or Philadelphia to Savannah, “Great Weekends” will have Sam traveling to destinations all across the U.S. and worldwide, and this weekend, she’s in your neck of the woods!
Hawaii is a land where the past lives very much in the present. This weekend Sam’s on the Big Island, shedding her skin and losing herself in the cultural and spiritual pastimes of the real Hawaii. Whether it’s paying her respects to the island’s volcanic goddess by getting up close and personal with rivers of molten lava, blessing a newly built outrigger canoe before hitting the high seas on its maiden voyage, or feasting her senses at the only authentic luau on a black sand beach, Sam is going Hawaiian in a way she’s never gone before. With only 48 hours, can Sam morph from big city urbanite to island girl? Grab a lei, some coconut juice and get ready for some hip-shaking hula as Sam goes native!
Tune into the Travel Channel on Saturday at 10 p.m. to catch the episode.
