I don't read magazines much these days but one that I still really enjoy reading is Outside. I read it because Outside is a magazine devoted to travel, fitness, outdoor gear, gadgets and sports. It has great articles on rock climbing or mountain biking kayaking etc. Every issue seems to provide coverage of these and all kinds of other exciting activities.
I've always loved the outdoors and camping. I like the escape it gives me to the outdoor lifestyle and it remids me I'm not the only middle aged guy trying to stay active. (http://www.outsideonline.com/)
Good writing, forum, interviews, humor etc.
I have less interest in the playmates. They are generally the same airbrushed synthetic creatures that in no way resemble "the girl next door". But meh.
