    Trends: Travel features in PC MAGAZINE?

    Since January 2006, PC Magazine has been broadening its coverage to include travel features ...
    And why not? Car/bike magazines, photography magazines have been doing so for years....

    This month PCMAG 'Connected Traveler' travels to Dallas to check out top tech attractions, including Fair Park, home to nine museums and six performance facilities, such as The Science Place, which has an IMAX theater.
    Previous issues have visited Salt Lake City "You'll be hard-pressed to find a hotel in Salt Lake City that doesn't offer free Wi-Fi in the lobby", Houston "Check out the museum that's all about people 'checking out'.", New York City, Detroit, Boston, etc...
