AZ State parks have free admission for MLK Day

Treasures in our own back yard!

For the third year in a row, get into Arizona State Parks and Trails with free admission just in time for the long weekend. From January 19-21, they’re throwing open the gates. It’s all part of the state’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration. This is a great opportunity to explore the treasures of Arizona.

It’s for AZ residents only, and you’ll need to show a state issued ID. Special events, tours, camping and other services will still have fees.  AZState

“January is a great time to get out and explore the parks in our amazing state, and a three-day weekend is the perfect opportunity,” said Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. “I encourage all Arizona residents to visit a state park near them during this special weekend.”
