Limited content with a ton of advertisements. If you're willing to sort through it, it isn't bad... But I wouldn't pay more than the $10 promo. Out of 100 pages, 43 had advertisements and this is not counting the pages that have some content along with an ad... So you're basically paying for half the magazine and advertisers are paying for the other half.

Skip this one!
By K. Yother
Meh. As other purchasers said, ads a plenty! Not sure I would ever reknew a subscription. Unless they were giving it away.
The locations they choose to write about are obscure and would cost a fortune to visit on a regular persons budget. Interesting enough stories, but just not for a thirty something such as myself - even as my husband and I are sans children and he's a doctor.
I've struggled understanding who their audience truly is. To active for much of the retired population and too costly for most folks. Get a Frommers book instead or Eyewitness Travel for a place you may actually visit one day.

Gorgeous pics, but too many ads
By D. Jarchow
Too many ads, not enough actual travel articles. The pictures are gorgeous though.
