The best pizza joint in Chicago. Where to rent bikes in Denver. The most amazing hotel to stay in when you see Machu Picchu. Our favorite travel product to make long flights easier. These are the kind of stories you can read in The Travel 100.

We write reviews on just about anything to do with travel, including hotels, destinations, cruises, products and cars. We also have a YouTube channel where we post travel-related videos.

What does the 100 mean in The Travel 100?

The Travel 100 is a publication of The 100 Companies, a digital publishing company in more than 24 markets. It primarily distributes enewsletters and is sending more than 1 million every month.

Each newsletter had 12-15 stories, each exactly 100 words.  You’ll be surprised how much you can learn with one photo and 100 words. It’s not like a chocolate chip cookie where a smaller morsel isn’t satisfying – our 100-word stories will inform and entertain you without the need for a lengthy investment of your time. That’s our goal anyway. We know you’re busy and have videos of bears playing in baby pools to watch.

While the stories in our monthly publication are 100 words, many of them link to much longer travel-related content on our website.
