Kalie Desimone- We are expecting some beautiful weather today so it's a great idea to come on out here to the Gulf Islands National Sea Shore and Fort Pickens because you can get in for free today.

For Martin Luther King Junior Day America's 401 national parks will be open for free. That means you can enjoy Gulf Islands National Seashore and The Fort Pickens area free of charge.

The fee free day only applies to entrance fees.  The superintendent of the park says they see an increase in traffic on days where they offer free admission. He says it's the perfect opportunity to get the kids out of the house and getting active.
