Love Your Parks Tour
Love Your Parks Tour

“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 are getting back on the road to continue their ‘Love Your Parks Tour!’ The tour is their quest to visit and cover all of America’s parks and public lands, along with their local communities. Of course Priscilla, their pink sock monkey travel mascot, will be along for this next adventure!

This epic journey started in 2012 and covered portions of California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Louisiana, Florida and Washington. After a necessary publishing and production break, Nancy and Lisa are ready for another commitment of traveling full-time to document, map and share stories about 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
.”

The Love Your Parks Tour itinerary for 2019 is being arranged now, with commitments to cover parts of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Louisiana and Tennessee. If you are in these states or are somewhere near them and would like your region to be part of the tour, please contact Lisa D. Smith at (760) 475-3308 or lisa@bigblendmagazines.com
