Season 2

Islands Without Cars, the unique independent travel series hosted by Kira Cook, is back for a second season! In six whimsical half-hour installments, Kira shows us what life is like on islands in the Western Hemisphere’s developed world that have managed to keep a well-worn foot in the past by restricting or forbidding the use of motorized vehicles.
