    Trying to plan a trip around my school calendar as a teacher or will have to wait till summer. Would parks be busy Jan. 15-19 with the MLK, JR. holiday on 1/19? Trying to plan how to use my personal days around a holiday.

    The parks might be slightly more crowded on MLK weekend than on the January weekends on either side, but the parks will still be MUCH less crowded than if you waited to visit during the summer. You can read about my MLK experiences in 2007 and 2008 HERE and HERE.

    Overall, you will have both lower crowds and cooler weather in January than at any time during the summer. If you could swing a trip over MLK weekend, that would most definitely be my choice.

    Good luck with your planning.
