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.
If you take advantage of this offer, be sure to take some photos and post them to our Facebook page.
