Get ready for our third trial issue featuring a whole new side of Boston and the adventurous underbelly of Burlington, VT. This third issue marks Immersion Travel Magazine’s first anniversary and an exciting year of experimentation, laughter, failure, moments of brilliance, and forward movement. This issue highlights areas of Boston that few think to explore as well as a community in Vermont that will make outdoor enthusiasts and foodies sing. Prepare for breezy tall ship journeys across Boston Harbor, yoga classes atop stand up paddle boards, eighteenth century tour guides in the heart of Boston, and locavore picnics at Charlie’s Boat House on the shores of Lake Champlain. Producing this issue has been a long and challenging process and our fans have been so patient and understanding through it all. 

At first, we were able to publish our issues through the Apple Store and readers enjoyed them on their iPads, but that didn't do it for us. We wanted every interested reader to have access to our issues, no matter what platform they had available to them. Very soon, we will have all three of our issues available to read on our website! Stay tuned as these incredible destinations will be here shortly.
