Modern Luxury Media Launches Escape Issue Logo

The Escape Issue highlights the travel paths unknown and hidden corners across the country as you discover the most fabulous luxury destinations to add to your bucket list

NEW YORK, NY - This February, Modern Luxury Media, the nation’s largest luxury media company, will once again deliver The Escape Issue, providing the most discerning travelers with the ultimate guide as we look forward to new travels in 2022.

Peak wanderlust is in full effect as the new year brings fresh perspectives on self-care and wellness. That’s why the editors of Modern Luxury Media have put together the annual The Escape Issue, the premium guide to places unexplored as you look to plan your next adventure. Flip to “Oh, The Places You Will Go,” The Escape Issue’s main editorial feature, that spotlights fabulous destinations across the country. Editors highlight not just the most luxurious hotels and resorts but also where to dine, shop, spa—and some nearby adventures that are not to be missed.

“An unexpected gift of the pandemic is that we all value the importance of wellness and self-care more than ever,” said Phebe Wahl, EVP of Editorial at Modern Luxury Media. “Now is the time to battle the burnout by carving out moments to rest and recharge. This is the perfect moment for our annual Escape Issue celebrating destinations both near and far—as well as ways to escape right here at home.”

Sometimes prioritizing time for oneself and escape can be as simple as diving into a new TV show or film. Acclaimed actress and cover star of The Escape Issue, Jessica Chastain has given the entertainment industry some of the most enthralling and captivating performances. There is no doubt Chastain is having a major moment. Rounding out a winning streak of critically acclaimed performances in The Eyes of Tammy Faye and Scenes From a Marriage, the reigning superstarlet of the year leaps and bounds across the screen in her latest project, an all women-led spy thriller, The 355. Chastain spoke with Wahl for the feature “Going Strong” on how she is pushing the industry forward and advocating for women in filmmaking.

Within the issue readers can also dive into adventurous getaways including exploring Jackson Hole in the feature “High Country” to a retreat at the South Walton in Northwest Florida. This issue is packed with the most adventurous getaway destinations across the U.S. for consumers looking to level up the excitement of their itineraries, inspiring a renewed sense of wanderlust.
