If you want to take a tour of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birth home, check the national park's website for availability.
Lottafrutta opens at noon, so plan accordingly if you want to get one of their famous fruit cups. We were ready to get one as a late-morning snack, but had to wait until they opened.
The middle of summer might be too hot to walk around the park. We visited on a mild December day, and the weather was perfect.
Entrance to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park is free.
This itinerary combines rich history with fun places for kids. The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park in Atlanta, Georgia, is one of the most important historical sites for the civil rights movement in the United States. While visiting Atlanta with kids, it offers a unique opportunity to speak with older children about nonviolent protest and to learn together about the life of Martin Luther King Jr. Toddlers and younger kids who may not appreciate the significance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life will still enjoy the Martin Luther King Jr. Playground, the fire engine at the Historic Fire Station 6 and the delicious fruit cups at Lottafrutta during this family mini-adventure.
