I have been looking forward to celebrating the 50th anniversary of Texas Highways since I joined the staff seven years ago. Our team is honored to see the publication through this milestone, one that would not be possible without the support of subscribers like yourself.
I wanted to take the time to share some of the exciting changes we have planned for the coming year. First, we are moving from a monthly to a 10-issue annual schedule beginning with our January/February 2024 issue. Subscribers and newsstand buyers will now see expanded “combined” issues for January/February and July/August. In response to feedback from readers, our January/February issue will debut a new monthly section on lodging across the state along with a cover story on “Where to Stay in 2024.”
While you will receive two fewer magazines a year, you will still get the same number of total editorial pages throughout the year as each issue will be larger.
What does this mean for you?
- If you originally signed up for a 12- or 24-issue subscription, you will still receive a total of 12 or 24 issues, regardless of this frequency change.
- Once you renew, you will be on the 10-issue schedule.
- The number of pages throughout your subscription will remain the same.
- The price you pay for an annual subscription (barring special offers) will not change.
Starting with the July/August 2024 issue, which will be devoted to small towns, we are upgrading the magazine’s paper to a heavier, better stock. We know many of you refer to past issues as you are planning your travels, and this change will allow you to preserve the magazines for even longer. And they’ll look better on your coffee table! The July/August issue will also include a visual refresh that will place a greater emphasis on the photography the magazine is beloved for as well as more practical travel takeaways to help you plan your future trips.
As a reminder, we publish additional content on texashighways.com covering a variety of topics, including outdoor adventures, places to stay, quirky finds, and quintessential Texas subjects.
Thank you for reading and supporting Texas Highways. When you purchase a subscription, you are helping us tell stories that inspire people to explore and love their state, which in turn helps local businesses run by fellow Texans. If there is something you’d like to see us cover in our 50th year, we welcome your suggestions and comments at [email protected].
