MLK Day: What’s Open, What’s Closed

Martin Luther King Jr./Stock ImagesMonday, Jan. 18 is Martin Luther King Day. It’s a federal holiday, so that means no mail delivery, banks are closed and no work for government employees.

Looking for something to do? Entry to all U.S. National Parks nationwide will be free of charge. Here’s a list of parks (some are free anyway;others have fees) in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia.
