Tue 3/22/2016 3:38 PM
Cynthia Keech - Warren, MI

It was my understanding that episodes could be viewed from your website. I thought I had in the past.  Is that an option that I am just not seeing here? I do love and look forward to the show, but when I miss it or if I'd like to see something again, it would be nice to have an option to do so.  Don't you think?

Hi Cynthia,
There are videos for nearly all episodes of Great Getaways within the online Travel Planners for each episode. You can find links on the Travel Planners page - http://www.greatgetaways.tv/travelplanner.html or through the Episode Archives http://www.greatgetaways.tv/archive.html. There is no section of the website right now that lists online videos of episodes but we will be updating/redesigning the website in the coming months and that is a feature that we are looking at adding.

Very interesting to see this beautiful part of Michigan; and how well the natural beauty had been maintained without all the commercialism, that has ruined most of the other beautiful sites in the country.

Ron Cronin - Walled Lake, MI

We love the sunrise side of Michigan! We are going to camp at the Tawas Point and Harrisville state parks this July. On an unrelated note, have you been to Grayling on the last full weekend in July for the canoe races? It’s a lot of fun to watch them start. They have activities all day that Saturday. Thanks for all you do, we love the show.
Sat 4/2/2016 1:19 PM
Janice and Keith McKnight - Flint, MI

We loved watching this week’s Tawas Circle Drive. We want to visit some of these places this summer. We enjoy your program every Saturday, we wait until afternoon to go out shopping and etc. until AFTER we watch your program. You have the most interesting places to go. Places we do not always know about even though we have lived in Michigan all our lives. In fact, my family pioneered Lapeer Co. and Grand Blanc, Michigan in the 1830's. So we have a history too, ha-ha. Thanks for your great program!
