Julia in Glacier National Park

Welcome!

I’m Julia Jennings, the blogger and national park lover behind Well Planned Journey. After years of visiting America’s national parks, I started this site to share everything I know about these beautiful public lands.

If you’re new here or don’t know where to start, this page is for you!

As someone who works a full-time job and finds time to vacation to national parks on weekends and holidays, I know how hard it can be to fit your big travel dreams into your daily life.

My goal is to help take the stress out of planning your next national park vacation by providing detailed, practical guides to the national parks, made with busy people like you in mind.

Here’s what to expect.

I share posts on the US national parks, road trips, and gear, all designed to simplify your planning process.
