2-0 out of 5 stars Ho-hum
I have to agree mostly with the reader from Greeley. Trailer Life is a fine magazine if you like reading about the latest big RVs and trucks.

But the destination articles are dull, the departments are oriented to guys who like talking about GVWR and transmissions, and the ads are unbelievable!

It's hard to find the content among all the ads. If the reviewers below took a pair of scissors to their last issue and cut out all the ads, they'd find themselves holding a total of maybe 20 pages out of the 100+ in each issue. You get what you pay for ... in this case, mostly ads.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth the Time to Check Out This Magazine
Having been an RVer since childhood, I find Trailer Life extremely helpful. My husband and I are carrying on the tradition that my family started when I was young - we own an RV and have traveled over 4,000 miles in one trip with a trailer. I don't find the advertisements annoying - as with any magazine, they are needed to help finance the magazine. If you are a REAL RVer, you will find the information in the advertisements helpful. As far as the feature story highlighting the tow vehicle more than the towed vehicle, this is simply not always true. Also, the feature stories from month to month show trailers of all sizes and all price ranges. One month may highlight an expensive motor home; however, the next month may highlight a much less expensive pop-up trailer. There may not be but one trailer or tow vehicle of interest highlighted each year, but it is always interesting to read about all that's out there. I must disagree with the Greeley, CO reader again -this is not a Keep-Up-With-the-Jones' magazine. Trailer Life exists to keep readers informed, not ahead of everyone else!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful magazine
I've been reading Trailer Life for three years and can't wait to get each new issue. I really enjoy the articles about places to visit, and the articles about new equipment, new tow vehicles and new travel trailers. I also enjoy reading the advertisements to gain new information and check out new gear and techniques. The upfront letters to the editor section is always very entertaining, and I like the section on dealing with repair problems. Lots of good information in this magazine for all categories of RV travelers. The other review of this magazine by a disgruntled reader in Colorado is indeed unfortunate. I dismissed it as someone with an axe to grind. For my money this is the best magazine for travel trailering available. Andy in Virginia.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for the "average" Rv'ing family!
Two years ago when my husband and I were interested in buying our first trailer, we came upon this magazine. I bought a couple issues thinking it would be nice to have a magazine "geared" toward young families, RVing, and camping in general. I was extremely dissappointed!

This magazine, first of all, is mostly advertisements. Secondly, they give more article space to the tow vehicle on the cover than the trailer! As most people who want to read this type of magazine have older trailers, or like us, ended up buying used because of price, it would be nice if the magazine had more for us.

Trailer Life is a "Keep-up-with-the-Jone's" type of magazine. Geared toward all the new gadgets and very pricey merchandise out there.

Having been an RV'er now for over two years, I have never felt the need to pick up a copy of Trailer Life. I have glanced at the issues at the market, but quickly put it down when I realized it had so little in the way of actual reading material vs. ads in it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars New England Charm Captured in Print
Despite the more modern look of Yankee magazine, it still retains its charm and wealth of good articles and information. I have been reading this magazine since I was a child, and you can spend hours poring over the information. From recipes to non-fiction articles, to calendars displaying the latest festivals in the New England area, Yankee magazine is truly a gem to keep on your bedside table.

5-0 out of 5 stars Yankee Magazine
Yankee Magazine is a delight to read whether or not your heart is in the New England area. Beautiful photographs. Interesting features (A Swap Column every month and on the internet!). I always love recipies and they have recipies with a history that are fun to think about trying. Every issue has several "must-read" articles.

2-0 out of 5 stars Single travelers poorly represented
I am an older single woman. I love to travel by myself or with friends. Recently, I subscribed to Travel 50 & Beyond.
I counted photographs of thirty couples in a recent issue and NONE of single travellers enjoying themselves. According to the American Association of Single People, almost 50% of the adult population of the US is unpartnered. The travel industry and its publications need to catch up with the demographics! I will not continue to subscribe to this or any other magazine that does not give equal representation to the travel interests of the single population. Wake up to reality! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, informative articles for Bay Area residents
I received San Francisco magazine as a gift a few years ago and at first assumed that it would simply be a way to keep up with restaurant reviews and the like for the city (I live about 35 miles east in the suburbs). After reading a few issues, though, it became clear that a number of the articles are very well written and provide great information and entertainment for residents of San Francisco and beyond. I am thinking of recent articles about Willie Brown (by Joan Walsh), Jim Jones Jr. (by Pamela Feinsilber), and the June 2003 "Green Issue." Some of the articles/features are less relevant to me, but there is always something interesting to read each time a new issue appears in my mailbox. I wish that there was more coverage of restaurants and cultural events in Contra Costa County (where I live), but this is San Francisco magazine after all! ... Read more

Being a resident of the midwest region of our country is not a necessary criteria for enjoying this magazine. While my family originates from the midwest, and we visit occasionally, I enjoy living on the east coast.

This magazine offers more than just the regional perspective. It shares information in a friendly, warm and upbeat manner that is useful and often fun. It's a pleasant read with good information presented in an enjoyable, attractive format.

Every time I finish an issue, I'm reminded of why the people and places of the midwest make me smile. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Awesome
From cover to cover this magazine is artistically designed and inspired. Everything you expect it to be, it is. Not only do the articles and pictures portray the latest and greatest in fashion and pop culture, but even the ads lead you to the high-end fashionably eclectic such as Oakley Eyewear and Screaming Mimi's. The articles are varied, going from Mandy Moore's new style to the new L.A. African dance trend known as "krumping" (ferocious, free, and performed at breakneck speed), to architectural design so out-of-the-way that it includes a cardboard box house. If you love fashion, the odd, the sensual, the just plain COOL, then subscribe to Paper. I'd buy it for $20.

1-0 out of 5 stars Recycled PAPER
I have kept giving this magazine a try over the years in hopes that it might someday live up to what it thinks it is, but I swear it just writes about the same things and same peoplemostly D-grade celebs over & over again. Anything they once may have had is long since gone since the mid-to-late 90's,
so do yourself a favor and save yourself some money or at least try one of the tons of new mags that are out there.

5-0 out of 5 stars My guide to the fabulous and hip
I LOVE this magazine. It is a hip lifestyle read that doesn't focus on the mainstream or commercial, but instead covers cutting edge designers, artists and filmakers. Paper always writes about things in a funny, insidery way that makes me feel like I was there (even though I don't live in New York City). I love their regular writers and columnists, especially the wacky fashion advice from Mr. Mickey, the style commentary by Kim Hastreiter and the news on what's trendy in Peter Davis' section. Although the fashion spreads might be too out there for readers of Vogue and GQ, I prefer a more daring take on fashion so I love them. I also love their choice of cover people who are not the same faces you see on the cover of every other magazine. I read Paper every month and think it is rad!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Collapsing under the weight of its own pretension.
Paper magazine may have been cool a few years ago, but it is a shallow, sell-out parody of what it once was. Basically a celebrity puff-rag. Ironically, not worth the paper it's printed on.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good, alternative, hip magazine
I like the creativity and originality behind this magazine. It is about fashion, but of all the fashion and lifestyle magazine on the market it is the least commercial. This may not be as big a deal for you. Perhaps you like your life driven by the ethic our comsumer culture. If so, then this magazine may or may not be the thing for you. But if you are decidedly countercounter and also "hip" in your outlook, you can't do any better than this magazine in my opinion. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars got it for my parents...
...and although it was a creative house warming gift, I am not impressed. If you are intrested in knowing what is going on with the lawyers or the fanciest chef's in the Boston area and where to locate these people, this magazine might satisfy you. I got a subscription for my parents when they moved to the Boston area about a year ago and, although they might give it a nicer review since they did RENEW their subscription, being an out-of-towner I am not at all impressed. The magazine seems to be promoting the idea that everyone in Boston is loaded and lives the glamorous life and while I understand that the cost of living int he area is quite high, I do not believe nor have I experienced the image promoted in the magazine to be accurate of the area. In visiting my parents I have tried many times to pick up the magazine and read it to no avail...

1-0 out of 5 stars This isn't the real Boston...
This isn't the Boston that 95% of us here in Boston know. This is the elite Boston and really boring. There are more ads in this magazine than in 2 issues of Vanity Fair. 2 good things about this magazine: 1. The best of Boston edition is very good. 2. It perfectly fits my cats litter box as a liner.

1-0 out of 5 stars Hawaii Desrves Better
Hawaii magazine is the magazine of the state, but they aren't even in the state of Hawaii. Hawaii Magazine is published, edited, and designed all in Southern California by the same folks that publish Cat Fancy Magazine. Hawaii is a unique and magical place, and that magic cannot be captured from an office thousands of miles away. This shows in the pages of the magazine, it's just not "Hawaii". In addition the printing is dull and the colors are flat, the paper is thin and the stories are watered down press releases. Hawaii deserves something better. Try Islands Magazine - it's a great magazine, even if only a portion of it covers Hawaii.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you love the Hawaiian Islands, Hawaii magazine is a must!
We go to Hawaii annually and this magazine helps us stay in touch with island happenings, situations, cultural events on the mainland, recipes and all things Hawaiian. It helps ease the homesickness of being away from our 2nd "home". They even have an annual photo contest to enter for the photography buff. (Would I be shamefully plugging that I won the Cultural category in the issue featured to lure you to this review? [Bringing the Islands Home]) ;-)
For Hawaii fanatics, this mags for you...hands down! ... Read more

South Beach, Florida, the once sleepy village filled with fading art deco architecture and fading retirees, has in recent decades become the revitalized tropical playground for the famous, beautiful, and wealthy. Ocean Drive's namesake is the hub of South Beach's now restored hotels, clubs, boutiques, and restaurants. The publication is similar to other regional urban magazines (running features on real estate, local movers and shakers, nightlife, and eateries) save for the fact that some of the world's most glamorous people such as Ophrah Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, and Gloria Estefan call this area home (or perhaps Home #3 or #4 or #10). But it is also a glossy fashion magazine; a fabulous celebrity or model lends her perfection to each cover. This magazine is world-class sophisticated, as is its subject matter, and the writing--when you can find it among the ads--is some of the best among its ilk. You don't have to be a South Florida resident to get absorbed leafing through its pages of beautiful photography. Ocean Drive finds company among Wor Vogue, and gives any followers of fashion an inside look into the lives of the world's biggest players--when they head to the American Riviera to play.--Beth Massa ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The kindgom and the glory...
Along with 'British Heritage', the magazine 'Realm' is one of the periodicals I use to keep current both on the current state of Britain's traditional culture as well as the current streams of thought on the history of Britain. Each issue includes articles on the past and the present; it is useful for both residents (to learn more about the isles called home) as well as for tourists, to learn more about what is worthwhile seeing. This magazine will give ideas that go beyond the typical travel suggestion magazine, with a greater discussion of history, as well as the current personalities involved in preserving that history.

A recent edition includes articles on prehistoric Britain (concentrating this month on stone-constructs like Stonehenge, as well as others); gardens in Stowe, among the best in England; an artists' colony in Suffolk which brings together both painters and composers; and a feature article on the Settle-Carlisle Railway. These articles show the range of topics that the magazine regularly covers -- recent issues have included highlights of particular castles and historical sites (Bosworth Field), features on counties, and biographical articles on historical characters (this month's issue includes an article on Owain Glyndwr, the 15th century Welshman who fought for independence).

Regular features include Letters to the Editor, which in this as in most British publications has a character rather different from American letters-to-the-editor columns; Diary, which highlights openings, special events, and upcoming features; Landmarks in History, concentrating on a particular small piece of history usually with overlooked significance; and Curiosities, which can end up being mostly anything, from a way to cook a peacock to a way to chisel a gargoyle.

Perhaps the most interesting article for me in the most recent issue of Realm is an article on Underground London (a perusal of other reviews I have done will show a significant number of reviews on books on London); not just on the London Underground, mind you, but rather the series of lakes, rivers, streams, and disused and incomplete tunnels that run under the city, largely unknown to the great masses of people who live above.

'Today, there is a veritable subterranean city beneath the streets of London. Yet the underground story starts many years before the reign of Queen Victoria. Here is one example. For many years both common publicans and nobles with a taste for wine have stored their bottles in cellars. Few were more noble than Cardinal Wolsey, whose 16th century wine cellar is hidden under today's Ministry of Defence. Curiously, it is more akin in appearance to the crypts of London's medieval churches and monasteries than to the beer cellars in use today.'

The article proceeds to discuss all of the various underground findings, from the buried Roman walls in the foundations of modern skyscrapers to the underground lakes that are incorporated into the sewer system.

This is a fabulous magazine, a delight for any Anglophile and a treat for those with interest in travelling to Britain. It combines fabulous photography with great writing and interesting topics.

Cheers!

5-0 out of 5 stars Britain's Past and Present... in Brilliant Colour
Other reviewers have mentioned how Realm brings Britain's past and present to life, and the tremendous wealth of useful travel information in each issue. As a longtime subscriber, I concur.

In addition, the quality of photography within is incredible. You can almost smell the fragrant freshness of English Gardens, the subtle scent of salt spray in a remote fishing village, or the exotic spiciness of Notting Hill's street market.

Should your travel be restricted to a favorite easy chair, Realm brings the U.K. to you. Enjoy.

4-0 out of 5 stars If you're planning a trip to Britain, get a subscription
I've read this magazine for several years and found it to be an important source of information on every aspect of planning a British vacation. In each issue you'll get information on things to see, places to stay, transportation, everything you'll need. I think that it might be better than most travel guides (they're usually a little out of date), IN BRITAIN Magazine is the only magazine that comes close to it in providing a traveler with useful information on planning a trip. ...

This is a decent magazine covering mainly entertainment, arts, festivals and restaurants in Cincinnati. It also touches on issues relating to the social, political and cultural climate of the city. This magazine leans a little to the trendy side and I do not think it is representative of the entire greater Cincinnati area which is much more conservative. It would be a good resource for those contemplating a move to the city to get a "feel" for its culture. It's also nice for those who have lived here for awhile and want to keep up on the entertainment scene. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars great magazine
I also disagree with the first poster; while admittedly heavy on the "upscale" advertising, Philadelphia Magazine always has at least an article or two of interest, along with great tips on what to do in the region...I also find the special issues, such as "Best of Philly", "Top Docs", and "Top Schools" both entertaining and informative.

4-0 out of 5 stars A varied, interesting read
I have to disagree with the previous poster. I find this magazine to be attractive, if a little heavy on the luxury goods advertising, and filled with articles on a wide variety of subjects. It's good for those who enjoy human interest stories and want a heads-up on unique upcoming events. I'm relatively new to the metro area and every month find another "well that's cool!" reason to feel proud of the region.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rule, Britannia!
'British Heritage' has been one of my favourite magazines since my childhood. I learned much of British history, country life, culture, and style from this magazine. Despite the occasional categorisation under Archaeology in some guides and libraries, this magazine is in fact a remarkably broad-based publication that examines various aspects of British life. I think the Queen might be a bit surprised to find a story about how she spends Christmas under the heading 'Archaeology'.

In my home I have a large stack of 'British Heritage', which several decades ago incorporated the magazine 'British History Illustrated'. The quality of writing and subject matter has been remarkably consistent over the years. One will find experts in various aspects of British life among the authors: such British names such as Lord Crathorne, Victoria Sackville-West, Beryl Olive Bailey, James Stockesbury frequently show up in the contents; major scholars too, such as Norman Davies, Alison Weir, and Antonia Fraser also show up on occasion to delight the readers.

This is not a 'Royal' publication, nor is it an exclusively upper-class periodical. While one will be treated frequently to tours of the great country houses (a large number remain unknown not only to the regular tourist trails but also to the nearby residents), and regular features on the royals past and present, in 'British Heritage' one will also find a regular offering of military history, literary history and analysis (a 1981 article on the Carlyles comes to mind as particularly worthwhile), geography, geology, and yes, archaeology. Britain has a settled history spanning millenia; the pre-history goes back even further (Stonehenge is not the only pre-written-historical point of interest!).

Holiday issues often explore how Britons in different parts of the kingdom and in different historical periods celebrated, as well as tips on how to integrate these traditional and/or lost customs into one's own family celebrations.

Britain being an island, there is much of seafaring history, custom and lore that is presented. A good article on the network of canals and rivers, now much less vital for transport, appeared recently, as well as an examination of undersea gravesites and archaeological discoveries. In fact, this becomes apropos as the Government debate whether or not to disturb wreckage dating to the second world war for offshore mining; history continues into the present, and the debate is on about what is important to preserve for future generations--a constant theme in building, development and land use, which is now extending offshore.

One will find the occasion features on pubs of historic or cultural interest, a look at shopping past and present, and of course, information for the prospective and current tourist to add more of an historical dimension to the latest drive-by sighting.

'British Heritage' is not confined to the British Isles, however, and frequently includes an article on one of the colonies or commonwealth countries, particularly as those places have attempted to preserve parts of their own 'British Heritage.'

Britannia may no longer rule the waves, but it has had a profound and lasting impact on the world. This magazine helps recapture some of the spirit that made this possible.

5-0 out of 5 stars Delightful, informative treat
As a long time subscriber, I have found British Heritage to be as creative and interesting a magazine as must exist. Subjects are diverse, the writing intelligent and often great fun, presentation delightful. It covers everything from history (for which it is a goldmine - there are unexpected and fascinating topics in each issue) to wonderful places to visit to ideas for a perfect afternoon tea.

Another distinguishing feature of this magazine is that it is solid journalism and creative, scholarly writing. Though it would be valuable to travellers (the more for those who spend a good deal of time in England), it is not aimed at tourists, nor is it a publication with a primary aim at increasing tourism.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Samples of Britain
British Heritage magazine is great for articles on all different topics pertaining to the British Isles. It does not focus on one area, but each issue has articles on various topics, from a trip through the Northern coast of Scotland and the history of the area, to celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II. The magazine does focus on the history of areas, people and ideas, but is diverse. it gives you a nice sense of the country, the people and their past, as well as places to visit and sites to see. Overall it's very well written and interesting to read, at a fraction of what other british magazines cost here in the States. ... Read more
