CNN StaffUpdated 26th May 2015
There will be an "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" marathon of all-American destinations on Monday, May 25, starting at 7 p.m. ET/PT on CNN.
(CNN) — If you don't plan to skip town this Memorial Day, take a tour around the country with "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown."
And be sure to tune in on Sunday, May 31, when Bourdain heads to another domestic location: New Jersey.
Your Monday night itinerary awaits:
Massachusetts, airs at 7 p.m. ET/PT
Anthony Bourdain travels to Massachusetts where heroin use is rising in small town America. Watch Parts Unknown Sundays 9pm ET on CNN and CNNGo.
"Looking back at your own youth is always filled with a sweetness, sadness and regret. So, it's a show that happens to take place in Massachusetts, but it is largely about my own path to heroin and how the hell mom, dad, junior and the high school quarterback in small town America are all shooting dope now."
Miami, airs at 8 p.m. ET/PT
Get a sneak peek at Anthony Bourdain's next adventure in Miami. The CNN Original Series "Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown" Sunday, May 3rd 9pm ET/PT.
"Miami has always been both refuge and reward for people from somewhere else, lured by a long standing dream, the promise of some kind of peace of mind on a beach."
New Mexico, airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT
Tony drives along old Route 66, which runs through New Mexico "like a collapsed vein" through Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
"New Mexico, where everyone from artists, hippies, cowboys, poets, misfits, refugees and tourists of every political stripe have interpreted the promise of its gorgeous, wide-open spaces and the freedom that it offers in their own, very different ways.
New Mexico is an enchanted land, where people are largely free to create their own world."
Las Vegas, airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT
Truffles and caviar and foie gras! Oh my! Tony enjoys the spoils of one of the villas at Caesar's Palace.
"We know, or we suspect, how the winners live in Vegas, the terrible things they do behind the doors of their comped suites, the alleged benefits of being a valued customer, a whale gambler. And I thought I'd take a look at that -- the kind of ultra-luxury available only to those who can afford a private jet into Vegas, who think nothing of leaving a few million dollars on the tables after a night of gambling."
Mississippi Delta, airs at 11 p.m. ET/PT
Anthony Bourdain explores the history, food and culture of the Mississippi Delta. For more, tune in Sunday, 9pm EST.
"The past, of course, like a constant accusation, hangs over everything in Mississippi. And those born and bred have gotten used to having to account for it, talk about it. Like I said, it's a poor state -- and investment in infrastructure -- whether renovating your home, modernizing your restaurant dining room, redeveloping an abandoned section of town is not much of a priority or even an option much of the time. So it looks much as it did in the movies you've seen. That's both curse and blessing. If you are focused on change, you will likely be frustrated. But if you like the good, old school s—t, you will find it in Mississippi."
The Bronx, airs at 12 a.m. ET/PT
Did you know hip hop's origins trace back to a '73 party held in DJ Kool Herc's Bronx building? See Parts Unknown 10/5
"The Bronx, as it turns out, is a paradise of delicious food. A sprawl -- like LA in the best possible sense -- where lots and lots of people from somewhere else came -- either recently, or a long time ago -- and brought their food and their culture with them."
Detroit, airs at 1 a.m. ET/PT
Anthony Bourdain explores the Packard Plant with one and only resident, Al Hill.
"Detroit isn't just a national treasure. It IS America. And wherever you may live, you wouldn't be there -- and wouldn't be who you are in the same way -- without Detroit."
Anthony Bourdain is taking a North American road trip of his own this summer with 10 live shows. Learn more about the "Close to the Bone" tour.
