The Hometown Issue (#1)




Issue #1

How do you begin a fresh look at the United States in 2020? For us, it was important to start with some basic reasons why the country is worth exploration. Which is why the debut issue looks at the country through the lens of hometowns. To get there, we tapped an immensely talented group of writers, photographers, and creators who’ve helped us re-see well-known places, uncover little-known adventures, and to discover anew. It’s all right here in issue #1: 128 pages of jam-packed travel features, tips, interviews, city guides, outdoors adventures, historical features, essays and more. All packaged in a fun and upbeat design that is unlike all other travel magazines.

About us

A mix of travel, food and music, Fifty Grande is a new biannual magazine that explores the U.S. Our mission is to inspire more people to take advantage of all the incredible places and experiences across the country. Each issue explores the country through one theme which we bring to life through in-depth articles, essays, oral histories, roundtables, Q&As, photo essays, travelogues and more, about every phase of traveling: planning, getting there, staying, doing, and recovering. And since food and music are integral to traveling, and community and good citizenship are important to how we view the world, we use all four as cornerstones to our coverage.
