  • Los Angeles Times - Travel tips and tools, columns, bargains and deals, gear and gadgets

    The monthly nature of magazines makes it difficult for them to stay up-to-the-minute in print. While their online counterparts fare slightly better, they're more valuable for finding deals and destination information than the latest travel news.

  • Budget Travel Magazine - News on how to spend less and travel more
  • Concierge - Features content from Condé Nast Traveler and Bride's Magazine
  • National Geographic - Not the most current news, but usually interesting
  • New York Magazine - Escape plans to destinations near and far away
