[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Sarah. And I'm Nilou. You don't have
to travel far to get away from it all. So
we asked our in-the-know readers for their island escapes right
here in America. For me, whale watching is a trip
of a lifetime, and Washington's San Juan Islands It's a
prime whale watching destination. In the summer months, you can
get up close, but not too close, and personal with
orcas, sea lions, and seals. Now, I also have a
soft spot for New England as you know, and it
doesn't get much better than Mount Desert Island in Maine.
There's Acadia National Park, plenty of lobster rolls, which you
know I love, wild blueberry bushes. And all of that
incredible fall foliage all in one place. Wow, bring your
camera. Near Charleston, Kiawah Island is a great spot for
families. I was just there, as you know, and spent
the day shark fishing. I even caught a bonnet shark.
What? Well, we threw it back. Don't worry. Thank God.
Further south the overseas highway to Key West has to
be one of the most jaw-dropping drives in all of
America. I love that lobster. Fried green tomato BLT, they
serve at Hot Fish Bar and Grill, it's right on
the water. Well, as we know, you're all about the
food. [LAUGH] It's true. Thanks for watching. Happy travels. [MUSIC]
