Love Your Parks Tour


Showcasing America’s Parks, Communities and Treasures


“Oh, the places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss


In May 2019, Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, Big Blend’s mother-daughter travel, radio, and publishing team went back on the road to continue their ‘Love Your Parks Tour!’ They are joined by pink sock monkey travel mascot Priscilla “Queen of the Road.”

Traveling full-time, the tour is their quest to visit, document, map, and share the stories of all of America’s parks and public spaces, routes and trails, historic sites and cultural landmarks, natural and geological wonders, local flavors and festive traditions, and more.


“We are on a mission to inform and inspire travelers across the country and around the world to explore America’s beautiful and historical park destinations by providing them with engaging and entertaining articles and event news, radio interviews and podcasts, photo and video features, interactive maps, and travel planning guides and directories.”
