Martin Luther King Jr. was born and raised in the American South, but his dream of racial equality and social justice reverberated out of his region, into the whole country and then around the world.
 
And it just wasn't his vision that spanned the globe -- the man himself embarked on travels far and wide.
 
You can honor him on Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday, January 20) or anytime of year by walking in his footsteps.
 
From his homeland in the Deep South to unexpected destinations far beyond America's shores, here are some of the best places to go for an MLK Jr.-themed trip. Check website links for possible admission prices throughout the year. All US national parks are free on MLK Day in 2020, so expect large crowds.
