The Holy City certainly has quite the history, as Samantha takes a walking tour through its hidden alleyways and the French Quarter. From blacksmithing to woodworking, Samantha learns about the mission and importance of the American College of the Building Arts (ACBA) along with its founding inspiration, blacksmith Philip Simmons. It is rice harvesting time, and Samantha learns about this old tradition on one of the few local farms that has kept the tradition alive and well. Leaving the rice fields, Samantha joins Executive Chef Forest Parker to have a traditional gourmet dinner at Revival, where the focus is on rice and other low country traditional recipes. What a better way to finish off dinner, Samantha checks out some local bluegrass music at the rooftop bar of The Vendue. With so much history in Charleston, Samantha cannot resist taking a tour of the haunted Old City Jail with the possibility of meeting some of its ghostly inhabitants. Continuing on, Samantha visits the City Market where she learns about the Gullah tradition of sweetgrass basket weaving and gets a lesson from a 5th generation basket weaver. The Gullah culture certainly has deep roots in these parts, as Samantha discovers at Boone Hall Plantation, where she joins Gloria learning more about the Gullah tradition during the time of slavery. Finishing off her visit, Samantha joins James Beard award-winning Pitmaster Rodney Scott at his restaurant to sample some of his legendary BBQ.

For more than 17 years, TV host Samantha Brown has been exploring all four corners of the world, visiting more than 260 cities in 62 countries, sharing her adventures and introducing new cultures to viewers.
Now, the two-time Emmy Award-winner embarks on her next journey with her new travel series SAMANTHA BROWN'S PLACES TO LOVE.
Unlike a traditional travelogue show with a formulaic itinerary, PLACES TO LOVE delivers decidedly refreshing and enriching travel experiences by taking viewers on a discovery of the emotional heart of travel and highlighting the people who are changing, challenging and strengthening a destination.
From Brooklyn, New York and Monterey, California to Shanghai, China and Donegal in Ireland, Samantha seeks out the little-known spots and haunts where innovators and disrupters are creating a brand new travel experience.
Whether it's through food and drink, art and design, culture or adventure, at the end of each episode, viewers will have a well-curated list of new experiences that focus on not just how to visit a destination, but how to fully immerse in it.
The 13-part series encourages viewers to experience the passion of people and the soul of a place in a way that only traveling can do.
Samantha's career as a television travel host happened by accident.
A producer spotted her work in a commercial and recommended her to the Travel Channel in 1999 to audition for a new show called Great Vacation Homes.
A decade of various series followed, including Great Hotels, Passport to Europe, Passport to Latin America, Samantha Brown's Asia, The Trip, 50/50, and many others.
Samantha's fun-loving style has made her a beloved and engaging television personality whose approach is less expert and more a person you would want to travel with.
