Are you dreaming of that next adventure? We all need to get away at some point. It’s hard to decide where to go, when to go, and why to pick one destination over another. Luckily television (teacher, mother, secret lover) is here to help. Netflix has a long list of travel shows to stoke the fires of your wanderlust.
Here are some of the best travel shows on Netflix streaming, available to watch right now.
7) A Cook’s Tour
This is where it all started for the now neigh-legendary Anthony Bourdain. The vagabond raconteur was still working as the executive chef of Manhattan’s Le Halle while moonlighting as a traveling foodie researching his next book (also called A Cook’s Tour). Bourdain is more wide-eyed and bushy-tailed in this version of the show — however, the strains of figuring out what TV Bourdain wanted to make is obvious. It’s a very common travel show that happens to feature food compared to the heights he’s achieved with Parts Unknown both visually and through story-telling.
6) Rock the Park
Jack Steward and Colton Smith adventure across the United States aiming to visit, trek, explore and experience every National Park in the country. It’s pretty awesome. They seem like two pretty cool guys to share a pint with after a long trek through Denali. The pace of the show is pretty fast and they cover a most of the USA in just two seasons. The show also reminds us that we don’t always have to break the bank, or travel insane distances to travel and grow — there’s an amazing world to see within the United States.
