Scripps Networks Interactive’s lifestyle-oriented online video portal ulive has launched a new season of “Almost Free,” a series hosted by Sonia Gil in which the travel expert provides tips on how to tour a city without breaking the bank.
The first season of the show, which spanned six short-form episodes, explored Miami Beach and what it had to offer to the thrifty traveler. Episodes focused on topics such as how to find a secret beach in Miami, where to find free live music, and generally the best “spots” in South Beach.
With the new season, Gil is taking her talents to the Big Apple. The first episode follows Gil as she hosts a runner’s tour of the city, from Brooklyn to Central Park in Manhattan.
In addition to “Almost Free,” ulive also offers Gil’s acclaimed “Sonia’s Travels” series, which won a Webby Award in 2012.
