We love a good travel video about as much as we love a good, eco-friendly ride. So, smart USA is launching a new travel series, customNATION, hosted by Camille Ford (from Travel Channel’s Food Wars) and Comedian, Christian Finnegan. The series follows the duo as they road trip through great American cities in various smart models, exploring unique and under-the-radar destinations favored by locals. Over the course of the next few months, customNATION will release videos featuring Austin, San Francisco, and New York City for the traveler looking for more than mere tourist attractions.
The series kicks off this week with ten brief segments featuring Austin hot spots, just as the nation’s biggest tech, music and film lovers have finished up SXSW. While in Austin, Finnegan and Ford visit Ginny’s Longhorn Saloon for some unusual bingo, discover urban legends at the Driskill Hotel, and experience “life-changing” brisket at Franklin BBQ.
So, in case you didn’t get your SXSW on, click here to watch the Trailer or visit the customNATION Premium Channel to watch new Austin episodes and to check for upcoming episodes in San Francisco and New York!
