Star Gaze at One of Utah’s Designated Dark Sky Parks

One of the many things that sets southern Utah apart from other travel destinations is its remoteness from the outside world and the ability to take in the breathtaking beauty of not just the landscape, but the open sky.

Utah holds the highest concentration of certified International Dark Sky Parks in the entire world, thanks to its isolation from light pollution that most major cities produce. Both inside and out of the national parks, visitors can enjoy astronomy events and stargazing programs that are both educational and inspiring, or simply take in the view on their own while camping or exploring after dark.

With 14 designated Dark Sky areas to stargaze in southern Utah alone, you are never far from taking in the stunning views individually or by way of public, informational programs, or guided tours. Plan ahead to get a front row seat at one of nature’s most spectacular shows.
