Samantha kicks off her visit to the Garden State in Cape May, the only US city designated as a National Historic Landmark. In the early 1850's, American Abolitionist Harriet Tubman found refuge in Cape May, where she planned the underground railroad with various abolitionists. At the newly opened Harriet Tubman Museum, Samantha discovers Tubman's connection to New Jersey and how Cape May played a pivotal role in the fight to end slavery. Rooted in sustainable practices and a shared sense of community, Samantha discovers Beach Plum Farm, a 62-acre working farm dedicated to the timeless farming heritage of the Garden State. At the Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor, Samantha talks with a conservationist about the ground-breaking research that the Institute is doing to preserve salt marshes and their focus on educating the public about the importance of salt marshes and their impact on many eco-systems. New Jersey played a major role in the American Revolutionary War, where the war was fought for three of the six years. At Monmouth Battlefield State Park, Samantha talks with Historian Dr. David Martin about the longest single day battle of the war that took place at this historic site that involved General George Washington, Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Samantha then visits the Source Farmhouse Brewery and talks with Founder Phil Petracca about the Brewery's socially responsible to charities, inclusion and their focus to bring communities together while sharing farm-to-glass brews that are being produced using entirely local-sourced ingredients. Heading to Asbury Park, Samantha visits the legendary music venue, The Stone Pony, and meets musician Southside Johnny, who shares stories about the early days of Asbury Park, Bruce Springsteen and performing at the Pony. Just down the road at the Transparent Clinch Gallery, Samantha talks with Photographer Danny Clinch about being behind the lens and capturing some of rock n rolls' greatest artists of all time.

About Samantha Brown's Places to Love:

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.
