About us

Vacations go fast. So does money.

That’s why we created Travel Beat. Our team of award-winning journalists will lead you on and off the beaten path to memorable attractions and sites that are worth the time and money you spend on them.

We’re doing the leg work for you—sifting through volumes of guidebooks and then setting out to put the best of the best to the test.
