Travel and Leisure is a glossy, glamorous publication, one that's a treat to leaf through on a cold winter's evening. Its focus on "the best", while interesting enough, is utterly useless for the average American who must travel on a budget. Once in a while, a photo or an article from this magazine will prompt me to look into a town or region to visit, but as far as practical suggestions go, there's a glaring absence. While the glitzy 4 star hotels are impressive, staying in little known, cozy and comfortable, local inns, or even renting a vacation house, is our first choice, but T & L is of no help with that.

Otherwise, it is one of the magazines which I love traveling with, especially when …
