Smithsonian Journeys will hit newsstands April 21 as a quarterly publication, the publisher said Friday. Each edition will focus on one destination with photography and stories about history, food, customs and science.
The first edition is dedicated to Paris with stories about its history, the origins of the croissant and other topics, said Editor-in-Chief Victoria Pope, who previously edited National Geographic and U.S. News and World Report. Like the Smithsonian museums, the travel magazine will include some science, art and a lot of history, she said.
Last year U.S. News & World Report hit a new milestone. The publisher broke its one-day web traffic record with 2.6 million unique visitors and 18.9 million pageviews. And it wasn't a celebrity iCloud leak or cat video that spurred the astronomical amount of traffic. It was the annual release of the Best Colleges ranking, a 30-year-old feature that evaluates colleges on an array of academic and student life criteria. Over the last decade, Best Colleges -- one of U.S. News' many "Best" lists, such as Best Cars and Best Hospitals -- has grown beyond a simple ranking. Today, the Best Colleges brand represents a portfolio of robust data-driven tools that users can engage with as they make major life decisions

He talks a dull game, yet for 27 years, Morse has helped shape the enrollments and reputations of the nation's colleges
The 30th edition of "Best Colleges" was released Tuesday. Brian Kelly, editor of U.S News & World Report, joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss the process behind the rankings.
