Best of the Road (1 x 60′) – Special that captures the thrills and adventure of the second annual Best of the Road® cross-country road rally, and takes viewers to the front lines of this annual Rand McNally adventure in which road-tripping teams travel from Washington, D.C. to Seattle, WA, in search of the Best Small Towns in America. Citizens across the country nominated their favorite towns on www.bestoftheroad.com, and online voting narrowed hundreds of towns down to a select group of finalists. Travel Channel host Bert Kreischer (Trip Flip) helps facilitate the judging at the end of the road trip.
The Best of the Road® Rally departs from Washington, D.C., where the pre-selected teams are presented with their personalized road maps and the destinations they are to visit along the way. Over the course of four weeks, each team travels a different route across the country in search of the Most Fun, Most Patriotic, Most Beautiful, Best for Food and Friendliest Town in America as they travel to their final destination – Seattle, WA. The team’s progress can be tracked on the Best of the Road web site.
In addition to the television special, Travel Channel will capture each team’s off-the-beaten-path adventures as they travel with the Best of the Road® RV. Exclusive footage of the road warriors and outtakes not featured in the special will be available on TravelChannel.com and BestoftheRoad.com. Follow on Twitter at @bestoftheroad and #bestoftheroad.
