About Samantha Brown

Over the last 18 years, Samantha has traveled around the world visiting over 250 cities in 62 countries and 40 of the United States creating over 160 hours of television programming (and counting). After all of that traveling she reluctantly accepts her title as a travel expert, preferring jokingly the more humble title of Travel Goddess.

Samantha started her career at Travel Channel where she created many iconic series. A decade of series followed, including Great Hotels, Girl Meets Hawaii, Passport to Europe, Passport to Latin America, Green Getaways, Passport to China, Great Weekends and Samantha Brown's Asia. In 2017, Samantha moved from Travel Channel to PBS and created her new show there called Samantha Brown's Places to Love. Samantha's fun-loving style has made her a revered and engaging television personality whose approach is less expert, less host and more a person you would want to travel with. She lives in Brooklyn, NY with her husband and 5 year old twins.

Samantha Brown's Places to Love takes viewers on a discovery of the emotional heart of travel by highlighting the people who are changing, challenging and strengthening a destination to deliver a decidedly refreshing and enriching travel experience.

In season 3, she launches 13 exciting new episodes, sponsored by AAA Travel, and airing on local PBS stations, websites and apps. Preview highlights of the entire season and season’s past by visiting your local PBS station.
