Welcome to NationalParkTraveling.com!

Big Blend’s National Park Travel Planner website is a great place to plan your next visit to a National Park destination. This site, along with Parks & Travel Magazine, is published by Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, a mother/daughter travel, radio and publishing team, who through their Big Blend Spirit of America Tour, are committed to visiting and documenting all 417+ US National Park Units and showcasing what their gateway communities have to offer. Our goal is to promote the full funding and protection of our National Parks and other public lands and programs, and to further sustainable and responsible tourism as a viable industry to the park gateway communities.
