But New Hampshire is truly one of the places she loves most, because she grew up here.

Samantha Brown was born in Dallas, Texas and spent her formative years growing up in New Hampshire. Normal travel back then was loading up the family station wagon to visit relatives in Pennsylvania. Her biggest international trip was driving across the border once to Canada for a Quebec family vacation in junior high school… Oh, the things to come!
After falling in love with the performing arts in high school, Samantha decided to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Syracuse University. The week after graduation, Samantha moved to New York City with her cat to pursue her dream of being on the stage. Not surprisingly this lead to 8 years of waiting tables, auditioning and various roles in off to off-off-off Broadway productions.
In 1999, she landed a gig hosting Travel Channel’s Great Vacation Homes. She’s since hosted Girl Meets Hawaii, Great Hotels, Passport to Europe, Passport to Latin America, Great Weekends, Green Getaways, Passport to China, and Samantha Brown’s Asia.
In January 2018, she began hosting and producing Samantha Brown’s Places to Love on PBS. The following year, the show won the Emmy for Outstanding Travel/Adventure Program and Brown won the Emmy for Outstanding Host.
