Guy Fieri and his family hit the wide-open road for a classic American summer vacation: a coast-to-coast road trip in search of iconic landscapes, epic adventures and delicious eats. The first leg takes the Fieris from their home in northern California to Lake Tahoe, Calif. where decadent Belgian waffles fuel a day of mountain biking. Then they get a bird's eye view of American ingenuity at the Hoover Dam before grabbing traditional Mexican mole and homemade salsa at Guy's restaurant in Laughlin, Nev. Later in Flagstaff, Ariz. the Fieris get to taste the red and green chiles at the local Chile Festival. They finish it all off with a cold glass of mead brewed with local wildflower honey.
Guy Fieri and his family hit the wide-open road for a coast-to-coast road trip in search of iconic landscapes, epic adventures and delicious eats. First in Flagstaff, Ariz. the Fieris head to a farmer's market where they find fresh organic chicken and roasted green chiles. Then they fly through the Grand Canyon and cook up a homemade chicken taco dinner on a Lake Powell houseboat. After some quirky stops along legendary Route 66, they land in Albuquerque, N.M. to explore American's most traditional food, the so-called Three Sisters crops, corn, beans and squash, grown by the Native Americans of the Southwest.
Guy Fieri and his family catch classic military history at the Alamo before heading to the modern-day Lackland Air Force Base. There, chef Robert Irvine joins to cook a feast of tri-tip French dip, pork tacos, spatchcock chicken and Cajun chicken alfredo to thank the troops for their service. But no good deed goes unpunished, as members of the special forces invite Guy and his son, Hunter, to skydive with them. Finally, the Fieris head for King Ranch to visit some contemporary cowboys and join in a cowboy cookout of smoked nilgai antelope and all the fixings.
Guy Fieri and his family rise at dawn in Corpus Christi, Texas to head out on the Gulf in search of snapper. The fishing's good, so they take their catch to a nearby ranch where Guy and his friends fry up the fish, along with some chicken parmesan, for the evening feast. In New Orleans, Guy searches for the perfect po' boy in the back of an off-the-beaten path grocery store before visiting Johnny Sanchez, where Chef Aaron Sanchez shows Guy how to make ceviche and a soft-shell crab sandwich. Finally, a canoe tour of the bayou ends with a festive crawfish boil in fine Cajun form.
Guy Fieri and his family stop in Fairhope, Ala. to visit their friend Panini Pete and see one of the most unusual farming operations in the country: oysters! Guy and his son, Hunter, wade into the Gulf to harvest the oysters for a local pop-up dinner. Then, Guy takes Hunter and Ryder to Punta Clara Kitchen to make old-fashioned candies from scratch before they head for Florida. There, the Fieris explore the Everglades by airboat and cook a feast of frog legs and fried gator before winding up their epic adventure on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in Miami.
