Did you know that millions of Americans have never traveled or never left the state they grew up in. Many have dreamed of taking a special trip, but lacked the time or opportunity to do so. In fact, a recent travel survey conducted by U.S. Cellular found that about one in three Americans (30 percent) have never traveled across the country.
“Big Country” will air beginning July 20 online at www.USCellular.com/BigCountry, as well as on uLive.com, FoodNetwork.com and TravelChannel.com. Edited vignettes will air on Food Network and TravelChannel. The series features U.S. Cellular customers who have lacked the time and opportunity to travel far from home.
