Travel + Leisure is a travel magazine based in New York City, New York. Published 12 times a year, it has 4.8 million readers, according to its corporate media kit. It is put out by Time Inc. Its main competitors are Condé Nast Traveler and National Geographic Traveler.


Initially published in 1937 as U.S. Camera and Travel, it later assumed the name Travel + Leisure in 1971.[3] The predecessor titles focused on travel photography, but the name change signaled a shift toward travel coverage in general.

The magazine specializes in leisure travel and often features articles written by novelists, poets, artists, designers and non-travel journalists. It is known for its travel photography and covers featuring models lounging in upscale environments.

Its World's Best Awards, an annual reader survey rating destinations and travel providers, have been announced every August since 1995. Other annual features include the T+L 500, a list of the world's top 500 hotels, and America's Favorite Cities, where readers rank U.S. cities in different categories.

The magazine's Web site publishes original Web content and destination guides.

Travel + Leisure Magazine was purchased from American Express Publishing by Time Inc. on October 1, 2013.[4]
