Last week, the TODAY anchors revealed that they would all be traveling together for the first time ever. Starting Monday, May 20, the Great American Adventure will take Matt, Savannah, Natalie, Willie and Al from coast to coast, visiting five U.S. destinations in a single week.

The trek begins Monday in Hawaii. The TODAY anchors will then head to Yellowstone National Park (Tuesday), Chicago (Wednesday) and Orlando, Fla., (Thursday) before wrapping up their week on the Jersey Shore, still rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy, on Friday.

And while they're looking forward to kicking off TODAY's Great American Adventure in Hawaii, Savannah joked that shooting a morning show will be a challenge due to the time difference.

"We'll have to do it at like 1 a.m."
