Beyond Your Backyard, a 13-episode travel series, debuts today on public television’s over-the-air lifestyle channel Create TV.

The show will air Tuesday and Thursday nights at 11 pm local time (but check local listings), starting tonight with a visit to Gettysburg, PA. Erik the Travel Guy (aka Erik Hastings) hosts the series, which also runs at various times on some PBS stations.

Other locations visited during the first season include Virginia’s Montgomery County and Williamsburg, Key West, The Bahamas, Washington, DC, New Orleans, Chicago and Northern California.

You can also stream 12 of the 13 episodes at pbs.org/show/beyond-your-backyard.

The episode not yet available for streaming is a Christmas show, which will run several times this weekend on Create. In it, Erik will visit “the world’s largest Christmas store” and “learn how to make delicious holiday treats at a world class resort.”
