Turn Here Productions - Memphis, Tennessee

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

USA

Do you like American music? Do you like the Blues? Rock & Roll? Soul? Maybe even a little Country? If you do, then you are going to enjoy a stroll with us down Beale Street, in Memphis, Tennessee—home of Sun Studios, where Elvis himself laid down his first tracks, and Stax records, which recorded the likes of Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, and Wilson Pickett.

Turn Here Productions - Boston, Massachusetts

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

USA

Viewer Discretion Advised

There is certain beauty in cheap bars, with their old pool tables and malfunctioning jukeboxes, hiding scars behind neon lights. There is an untold charm in the wobbly stools and the stinking bathrooms. Some people might never be able to see the gritty allure of the dive bar world. Lucky for us, our Bostonian guides have a small budget, thirsty livers, and open minds.

Penguins in Oklahoma? Don’t be surprised! Also, we found a perfect place for meat lovers. The walls at Elmer’s are a testimony of all the famous people who’ve stopped by to enjoy some food. And don’t miss the legendary waitress!

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

USA

Rock’n’Roll isn’t dead—it just moved to Hamtramck! At least that’s what it seems like after checking out all the goings-on in this “city-within-a-city” near Detroit, Michigan. The lively music venues, happening art and theater scene, Polish food and culture, and hip shops filled with vintage clothing and cool, if not always useful, stuff make Hamtramck a fabulous place to be. Check it out!

Turn Here Productions - Melrose, California

Difficulty: difficulty - Adv-Intermediate Adv-Intermediate

USA

Melrose is well known for the chic chicks cliché, but walking around these surprisingly friendly streets we found out that the spiritual way leads to less tips and that you can find almost everything that you want in Melrose except a famous skeleton. And how can you say no to “mother nature and lots of love”?

Turn Here Productions - Oxford, Mississippi

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

USA

Oxford, Mississippi is described as a fine, small, southern town but there is definitely something that makes it stand out from other fine, small, southern towns: it’s the home of William Faulkner’s tomb, not only a great destination for literary tourism but also for the most bohemian expressions of Oxford’s alcohol-fueled youth. Music, food, friends, books, and booze? What more could you ask for?

Difficulty: difficulty - Adv-Intermediate Adv-Intermediate

USA

Los Angeles is a city where everybody shines. Let’s visit a small area of town where you’ll find the most exclusive clothing stores and the pimpest ostrich shoes you could ever dream of! (We’ll forgive the erroneous reference to the 2006 NBA Champion Lakers. Shaq went to Miami, remember guys?)

Turn Here Productions - San Francisco, CA

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

Argentina, Philippines, USA

Tango has its roots in Argentina, but today this dance of love and passion can be found worldwide. Few places outside of Buenos Aires embrace the close embrace like San Francisco, California. On the street, San Franciscans demand their personal space, but at the milonga, distance falls away like the sun setting on the Golden Gate Bridge. Let’s drop in and see if we can pick up a few steps.
