Remembering the Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Remembering the Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The first long weekend of the new year is on our doorstep. Martin Luther King Day, it is observed on the third monday of January each year, is a day of service, commemoration, and the broadening of horizons. All across the country, people will gather to honor the man who led the Civil Rights Movement.

If your resolution for this year was to make a difference in the world, this national holiday is the perfect way to start. Find a project in your community or register your own project so that volunteers can find it. Alternatively, you can attend one of the many celebrations going on around the United States. Here’s a taste of what some of the major US metropolitan areas have to offer:

Nationwide

Remembering the Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

On Martin Luther King Day, all national parks and monuments will be offering free admission, meaning there’s more of a reason than ever to see the beauty in your very own backyard. From the history of Yellowstone to the tips of the tallest sequoias in King’s Canyon, the public is invited to take in nature’s diversity.

Washington, DC

In the nation’s capital, the place where so much of the Civil Rights demonstrations were centered, the services of remembrance take on both a somber and a joyous atmosphere. Here’s a sample of what will be going on:

  • Georgetown University and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts are proud to present a special musical performance featuring the Let Freedom Ring Choir. Tickets are free but required to attend. They will be handed out the day of the event in front of the concert hall starting at 5:00pm. This concert also features award-winning singer Dionne Warwick.
  • Kids’ tours of the Martin Luther King memorial will be held twice a day all weekend, at 11:00am and 2:00pm. Kids will learn about history and have the chance to earn a “Junior Ranger” badge.

New York, NY

Perhaps no place in the United States is such a perfect example of cultural diversity as the Big Apple. For decades, people from all over the world and all walks of life came here to start fresh in a place where the felt their dreams could be realized. The ideas of equality and community presented by King take on a new life in this amazing place.

  • Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Columbus Circle is hosting a special jazz show at 7:00pm and 9:00 pm. 
  • The Children’s Museum of Manhattan is hosting a variety of activities focused on community service and understanding the message of Dr. King. The exhibits are mostly geared toward kids between the ages of 4 and 8.

Atlanta, GA

It was in the south that the call for equality was heard the loudest, and to this day people come together to celebrate the incredible bravery and acts of civil disobedience that rang throughout the region.

  • A Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Holiday Commemorative March & Rally will be held at 1:45pm. It begins at Peachtree Street and Baker Street and ends outside the King Center at 4:30pm.
  • The MLK Day 5k Drum Run will start at 8:00am in Piedmont Park. The event gets its name from the 3.1 mile drumline all along the race course. This unique event lets runners register their school, church, organization, etc. as a beneficiary for proceeds from the fundraiser.

NYC Summers- Fun in The City!

New York City

New York, New York! No matter what time of year you visit this sprawling city, there will always be an endless series of events happening, but in summer, things really take off. Whether you’re rolling like a queen through Queens, chilling with the hipsters in Brooklyn, or living luxuriously in Manhattan, you’ll always be able to find free concerts, outdoor movie screenings, hip rooftop parties, and so much more.

GotoBus.com is a leading online marketplace where customers can book bus tickets, as well as hotel accommodations and more, from one convenient location. We also understand the importance of traveling on a tight budget, and we make it our goal to cater to the needs of such customers. And we just can’t get enough of NYC. We think it’s easily one of the most exciting cities in the whole world, so we’re always trying to sing its praises and convince people to visit. Below, we’ve compiled a short list of some events happening in the Big Apple over the next few months, making sure to throw in some that are totally free of charge, so you can enjoy the your vacation while still having plenty of money left over for souvenirs.

Shakespeare in the Park

There is a great deal to said about the fact that the iconic plays of William Shakespeare, who was alive about hundreds of years ago, are still performed today. They really prove that art contains a timeless power to reach people across time and cultures. Shakespeare in the Park, in its 53rd year, is held at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, is free (you just have to wait in line for a ticket), and runs continuously through the summer until August 23rd. This year, the park will be putting on Cymbeline, a story about a British king and his daughter. Shakespeare in the Park could potentially offer some odd surprises and quirks to theater-goers: in the past, weather-related issues have forced performances to stop-and-start at random intervals, and occasionally, some of the park’s local wildlife have made it onstage for a cameo. Boston, another city with a vibrant theatrical community, is only a few hours away. Book your bus tickets from Boston to New York starting at $18 one way!

Central Park, New York City

Swimming & More!

If you’re getting too hot, the city has about 14 miles of beaches that are loaded with activities. Take Coney Island, for example, an iconic landmark in Brooklyn, where you will find a lively boardwalk, a thrilling amusement park, and a huge cast of interesting characters. Nearby, you can also choose to go to Brighton Beach, an area traditionally filled with Russian immigrants, and Rockaway Beach, preferred by the hip, cool, and young since the Ramones named a song after it. On the New York’s Parks Department website, you view a list of the free outdoor pools in the city. Book bus tickets from Washington DC to New York for as little as $21 one-way to escape all that heated political debate!

Coney Island

Jazz Age Lawn Party

Do you ever find yourself daydreaming about the “Roaring 20s,” rereading F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby (or watched the Leonardo DiCaprio movie) over and over, and dressing up in your zoot-suit or flapper gown for a night of swing dancing? Or, instead, do you find that you don’t understand any of those references? Either way, you should check out this Jazz Age Lawn Party, an exciting outdoor event on Governor’s Island, scheduled for the weekend of August 15th. You’ll be able to dance the Charleston, Lindy Hop, or a bunch of other dance styles that you’ve never heard of (don’t worry: there will be people there to help teach you!). Tickets for the party start at $35. Chicago is another city with a deep history in the Prohibition Era, so this would be a great way for visitors from that area to connect to their own local history. Book your bus tickets from Chicago to New York for as little as $60 one-way.

Waterfight NYC

Ready, aim, fire! When was the last time you were in a water-gun battle? Most of you probably couldn’t remember anything more specific than “When I was a kid.” And you know what? That’s lame! Water-guns are a blast (get it?) for all ages. This is obvious to the organizers of Waterfight NYC, an annual free-for-all water-fight welcome to all. Though the exact time of this event have yet to be revealed, we know that on July 25th, a massive crowd (last year, thousands of participants unleashed their battle cries!) will gather on Central Park’s Great Lawn for this ultimate showdown, the water-gun battle to end all water-gun battles. This event is free to attend; you just need to remember to arm yourself with finest in Nerf technology. Book your bus tickets from Atlanta to New York starting at just $35 one-way.
