Initially published in 1937 as U.S. Camera and Travel, it was acquired by American Express in 1968. It was named Travel & Camera from 1969 to 1971, after which it assumed the name Travel + Leisure'. The predecessor titles focused on travel photography, but the name change signaled a shift toward travel coverage in general. As of 2009, the editor-in-chief is Nancy Novogrod.

The magazine specializes in leisure travel and often features articles written by novelists, poets, artists, designers and non-travel journalists. It is known for its travel photography.

Its World's Best Awards, an annual reader survey rating destinations and travel providers, have been announced every August since 1995. Other annual features include the T+L 500, a list of the world's top 500 hotels, and America's Favorite Cities, where readers rank U.S. cities in different categories.

The magazine's Web site publishes original Web content and destination guides. As of 2009, the site's executive editor is Rich Beattie.
