What is Aerial Cities About?
‘Aerial Cities’ is one of the best shows on the Smithsonian Channel. The show is essentially a celebration of some of the most prominent cities of America. America has always been a land of opportunity. It is the capitalist headquarters of the world and millions of people move here to turn their lives around.
‘Aerial Cities’ explores these cities and the people that make the cities what they are. The highlight of ‘Aerial Cities’, as the name suggests, is that the show captures footage using drones and helicopter-mounted aerial cameras. A bird’s eye view of America’s greatest cities is truly a spectacle.
The show covers everything from concrete jungles to lush green forests. The show takes us to Los Angeles as it explores the famous slopes, the Muscle Beach and the Sunset Strip. The home of Hollywood looks spectacular through a drone lens. We are then taken on a flight across San Francisco as the show captures its dazzling bridges and Alcatraz.
Another episode takes us to Miami as we see aerial views of the beautiful beaches, the busy ports, the local parks and some of the most iconic pubs. ‘Aerial Cities’ also explores Seattle which is one of the core American cities.

Las Vegas was built in a desert and itself is a marvel. The never-ending lights of some of the most iconic hotels in the world dazzle the city’s landscape when captured through a drone. The best part of ‘Aerial Cities’ is that it does not just focus on marvelous aerial footage, but dives into the culture and everyday life in each city. Each episode features interviews of people who make the city what it is.

In Las Vegas, we get to hear from the engineers who have relentlessly worked and continue to work on building the Sin City. The show manages to offer an insight into the lives of so many ordinary people who make extraordinary contributions every day to make America a strong and powerful nation. The show is also a huge information pool that provides us with ample knowledge about these cities and their culture as well as political importance for the country.
It is a wonderful experience to understand how the cities originated, the migrations that happened over centuries, and how the landscape of each of these cities has evolved. The show also explores the food and the local attractions of each city.
