Take a lively armchair visit to some of the exceptional resort hotels throughout the United States. Along the way, host Samantha Brown experiences first-hand what makes these hotel destinations popular, appealing, unique, and memorable. Each episode presents an entertaining "story" of up to two different hotel destinations, complete with encounters and eccentricities that creatively show and tell what makes each hotel a great experience. Episode 19: If asked "What is America's oldest city?" many would say Williamsburg, Virginia, or Plymouth, Massachusetts. But, surprisingly, the answer is St. Augustine, Florida, which dates back to 1565. This hidden jewel of Florida has 42 miles of pristine beaches, quaint artist galleries, and a historically accurate 16th-century village. Samantha Brown heads south to this popular destination to check into the Casa Monica Hotel.But a trip to St. Augustine isn't complete without a few of the more "touristy" treats as well. Samantha has her choice between the fabled Fountain of Youth, the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, a natural lagoon teeming with alligators and crocodiles, or a climb to the top of Florida's first lighthouse: Which excursion will Samantha choose? But St. Augustine isn't the only city where you can experience a little history with your hotel. The Hotel Burnham in downtown Chicago has made some history of its own. Samantha travels to the Windy City to check out this landmark hotel. This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
