Rand McNally and Destination America Team Up to Provide Expanded Travel Content for Series Favorites
Mar 26 13
Road travel expert Rand McNally will partner with Discovery Communications' Destination America television network to provide exclusive content beginning this month. Utilizing their deep knowledge of America's small towns and noteworthy attractions nearby, Rand McNally will create custom road trips and other unique travel features tied to Destination America's hit series such as MONSTERS AND MYSTERIES IN AMERICA and BBQ PITMASTERS. The first road trip complements Destination America's MONSTERS AND MYSTERIES IN AMERICA episode airing Sunday, March 31 at 10pm E/P which features the Pacific Northwest. The show spotlights accounts of restless souls in Portland's spooky Shanghai Tunnels, Bigfoot encounters in the mountain wildernesses of northern California and Washington State, and sightings of the serpentine Flathead Lake Monster in Polson, Montana. Rand McNally's road trip puts travelers in touch with Portland's past (both above ground and below) and contemporary culture before taking them west amid Oregon woodlands and wineries. It then heads north along the coast, where local legends are as ubiquitous as Pacific mists, to Olympic National Park, where enigmas are wrapped in ancient forests---and vice versa. All along the way, the region's mysteries and most authentic travel experiences unfold. The trips and tips will be made available to the public via e-mails and a link to Rand McNally's blog from the Destination America site.
