Travel Channel wants to make planning your next excursion more accessible... and adventurous!

Featuring Travel Channel's video, photography and expert advice, the updated guide provides a unique and off-the-beaten-path perspective on hotspots and local favorites in different cities around the world... and this time for free!

The first version of the app, which launched in March 2012 for $1.99, debuted as the #1 Travel download on the App Store. The updated version unveils an inside look at Chicago, coinciding with the premiere of season two of "The Layover with Anthony Bourdain" on November 19 at 9:00pm ET/PT.

Additional new/enhanced features of the "Travel Channel Layover Guide" includes:

· App users will be able to opt for advisories, as well as tune-in reminders for upcoming TV episodes.
