Mission

Welcome!  Here at Plan My Parks, I have the basic belief that every family should experience the incredible land that surrounds them and there’s no better way to do this than a visit to our national parks.

I understand the importance of vacations- they provide respite from our busy lives and allow time to reconnect with those closest to us.  Our country’s network of national parks manages millions of acres of protected land that are the perfect place to unwind and share exciting new memories with your family.

Planning a trip to a national park can seem daunting but here at Plan My Parks, I make discovering our country’s most amazing and iconic landscapes fun, easy and affordable.  I work closely with individuals and families to navigate the national park travel planning process.  I’ll take care of connecting your family to the best hikes, lodging, activities, food and more.  All you have to do is enjoy the spectacular beauty of these places!

When you set out to explore America’s most wild places, you’ll feel confident you’re making the most of your vacation.  So whether this your first excursion or you’re a seasoned veteran of the outdoors, let Plan My Parks help plan your trip!

Thank you and I hope you enjoy exploring our nation’s wild places!

Dylan Lewis (Founder, Chief Planner) – Originally from Albany, NY, Dylan was introduced to the national parks at a very young age, visiting Glacier and Denali National Parks before the age of two. He learned how to truly appreciate our country’s most amazing landscapes by camping and hiking everywhere from the peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the arid deserts of the Southwest. Dylan conducted several research projects on protected lands in the United States as part of his undergraduate work at Northwestern University, earning a political science department award for his honors thesis examining the role of volunteerism in the National Park Service.

Dylan has worked as a tour guide and a naturalist, led bike tours on Cape Cod and the Islands, supervised environmental service trips in Hawaii and studied mountain goat and pika population patterns at Glacier National Park in Montana. He continues to explore national parks across the country and is committed to inspiring others to discover our nation’s most spectacular wild places.
