DENVER, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Exclusive Resorts®, a collection of 300+ carefully vetted and privately managed residences spanning 75 destinations, today announced the launch of its newest web series entitled Meet Me There hosted by Club member and resident travel expert DJ Duckworth.

As host of Exclusive Resorts' new web series, DJ will report from eight of the Club's flagship destinations sharing her favorite locales and showcasing top member picks, cultural icons and best-kept secrets. A new episode of Meet Me There will be released every month on the Club's YouTube channel. Each segment will document DJ's trip with Exclusive Resorts from arrival to departure. Viewers will follow DJ everywhere, from her favorite haunts in her home base, New York City, to Real del Mar's best kept dining secret – Tacos on the Street – and their signature dish, carne asada tacos.

"We're thrilled to showcase our destinations and experiences through the eyes of a well-seasoned traveler and longtime member," said Todd Harris, SVP of Hospitality and Member Services at Exclusive Resorts. "Like all of our members, DJ is adventurous and down-to-earth but has a keen eye for top-notch service, five-star accommodations and highly curated travel experiences."

DJ began traveling at the age of nine on a family trip to the St. Louis arch. After being inspired by her Great Aunt's travel stories and a high school trip to Europe, she's traveled around the world, zip-lining in Costa Rica, rubbing elbows with fashion designers during a member Event at New York Fashion Week and meeting local artisans in Florence. Since joining Exclusive Resorts in 2005, DJ and her family have taken more than 100 Exclusive Resorts vacations.

"Exclusive Resorts has had a lasting impact on my life and my family's life since I joined nearly 10 years ago," says DJ Duckworth, host of Meet Me There. "Being able to stay in a home and really settle into a place, even if for only a week at a time, is a completely different experience than seeing it from your hotel window. I am so excited to be a part of the Club's new web series and showcase their extraordinary travel experiences that I have enjoyed firsthand, along with a few tips and tricks of my own."

The inaugural webcast of Meet Me There features DJ in her resident town of New York City. Viewers will learn about her move from a small town to the Big Apple, take a tour through the city to some of DJ's favorite spots and get to know her 9-year old son, who has become her best travel comrade. Future episodes will feature DJ's travels to Grand Cayman, Mexico and Hawaii.
