The Seasoned Traveler

From the Florida Panhandle through southern Alabama and on to the Mississippi coast, George Bauer visits some terrific beach towns that many people don't even know about. They're not only great vacation spots but could also be good places in which to retire.

Series Description: THE SEASONED TRAVELER, hosted by award-winning journalist and veteran traveler George Bauer, presents useful travel tips for the over-50 explorer. Bauer visits a wide range of fascinating destinations, including the beautiful islands of Bermuda, the national parks and monuments of the American Southwest, the ancient ruins of Mexico, the cosmopolitan Canadian cities of Toronto and Vancouver and picturesque southern Germany. In each episode, Bauer covers the destinations' "best bets" - its notable food and drink, best-kept secret and most enjoyable activity - and provides viewers with information resources for each locale. Throughout the series, mature travelers also share their own experiences - from the pros and cons of buying an RV to the pleasures of a Rhine River cruise.
