Today, the premier issue of the new Lonely Planet magazine hits the newsstands in the United States. You may be saying to yourself: “but I’ve seen copies of the Lonely Planet magazine all over the world for years”—and you would be correct. The travel guide series stalwart already publishes eleven other versions of the magazine in various international markets, but this is the first time that an edition designed for the U.S. market will be published.
From what I’ve seen, the new quarterly will offer Lonely Planet’s idiosyncratic perspective and a mildly adventurous take on travel. The new American publisher promises to include stories on travel technology and gear, tips and advice, culture and history, and great photography.
The Winter 2015/2016 issue has features on Rome, Nashville, and Cuba. Cover price for each issue is $5.99, with discounts for both print and digital subscriptions available.
