T+L 50th Anniversary

50 Years of Travel + Leisure

January 15, 2021

This year marks 50 years of Travel + Leisure, and what a ride it's been. Much has changed since our first issue was published back in 1971, but one thing has remained the same, and that's our passion for travel, both near and far. We invite you to celebrate our golden anniversary with us by taking a trip back in time — and a look into the future. We're incredibly thankful to still be exploring the world with you.

T+L celebrates its golden anniversary this year, so we're taking a look at the first issue that set the tone for 50 years of travel coverage.
