With more than 8.5 million readers, National Geographic Traveler has the largest audience of any travel magazine in its category. Its readership is comprised of travelers with the highest passport ownership, most international and domestic trips, and most outdoor recreation spending than competitive magazine audiences.
The San Diego/Tijuana multi-national region is home to authentic travel opportunities with diverse cultural offerings and ideal year-round climate for outdoor activities. With the completion of the #CBX Cross Border Express, visitors to San Diego can quickly and conveniently fly in and out of Tijuana, providing more opportunities for international travel.
“We’ve been working closely with our travel industry counterparts in Tijuana to market our bi-national region as a destination for a ‘2 Nation Vacation’,” said Joe Terzi, president and CEO of the San Diego Tourism Authority (SDTA). “And recognition by a prestigious publication such as National Geographic Traveler shows that our efforts are beginning to pay off.”
