Visit Arizona’s National Parks… For FREE!

In honor of the upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday, good old Uncle Sam is offering free admission to all 397 national parks from January 14-16.

“Dr. King led the fight to realize his dream of a nation free of discrimination, where every citizen was able to enjoy the inalienable rights promised to all Americans,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “Dr. King’s story and those of so many others whose efforts changed our country are preserved in the national parks, places where history happened. I hope every American can take advantage of the upcoming fee free weekend and visit their parks to experience their history firsthand.”

For us, this means FREE admission to parks like Canyon De Chelly, Tumacácori, Grand Canyon, Montezuma Castle, Yuma Crossing, Organ Pipe Cactus, Tuzigoot, Petrified Forest, Sunset Crater Volcano and Fort Bowie… to name just a few.

  1. Such gorgeous photos. This magazine always makes me homesick and makes me wish I could kick myself! Why would a born and bred AZ native ever move East? I must have been certifiable when at 19 I was tired of cactus and brown and wanted to live somewhere green. A smart woman would have simply moved north. Sigh now at 56+ I appreciate my home state and would so like to come back where the winters are mild! 🙂
