New travel series featuring holiday destinations with direct flights from Ireland. In the first programme, presenters Joe Lindsay and Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin report from the Windy City. With daily flights from Dublin, Chicago is trying to steal New York's crown as the top American city break destination. The show picks up on recommendations provided by users of the Getaways website www.Getaways2013.com. Highlights include a bird's eye view of the city from The Skydeck on the Willis Tower, an architectural river cruise and a visit to Millennium Park to see Chicago's most famous and best-loved landmark, "The Bean". Aoibhinn also takes a short Getaway in Westport, where she learns how to make a hat on a millinery 'learn-to' break.
Getaways is a co-production with BBC Northern Ireland and RTÉ One.
