A lot of my favorite travel magazines ceased publication after the internet took off. Conde Nast Traveler has managed to hang on, despite the fact that many of it's articles feature an upscale style of travel that isn't practical for many of us.
The Stop the Press section they include every month does have a lot of useful information. In the past, this section has focused on things such as safety and security, frequent flyer programs, how to get the most value for the U.S. dollar, etc This section also contains the Ombudsman column, which offers advice and mediation on travel problems. It's always interesting reading, and is the page I turn to first.
The rest of the magazine is hit or miss for those of us who can't or won't spend $400 a night on a hotel room. It sometimes wets my appetite for a possible travel destination, but it really can't be looked at as a practical, "how to travel" guide for most of us.
