Jim Barnett’s Gotta Go!


Airs Saturday, May 25th at 6:30pm on WTVP-HD 47.1.

Jim Barnett’s Gotta Go!


If you’re looking to get away but not stray too far from home this summer, then WTVP and traveler Jim Barnett have some great ideas for you! Jim has a new travel show that will be visiting locations all across the country, but these early episodes are close to home.

You’ll be amazed and delighted with Jim’s forays to Saugatuck and Traverse City, MI, South Bend, IN and Gulf Shore and Orange Beach, AL. The locales are beautiful and appealing and the people and places Jim uncovers will make you want to jump in the car and be on your away!

The series will air Saturdays at 6:30 p.m., and each half-hour episodes will encore on Fridays at 10:00 p.m.

The first road trip on Saturday, May 25 at 6:30 p.m. will take us to Traverse City, MI, where Jim will visit the annual Cherry Festival, learn the secrets of growing the best cherries, sample a few tasty treats and then head off to explore some of the beautiful countryside in and around Grand Traverse Bay.
