Greater Palm Springs, California's Two International Dark Sky Parks

Greater Palm Springs in southern California offers not one but TWO International Dark Sky-designated areas to enjoy. Both offer different daytime and camping experiences, too. Joshua Tree National Park, an International Dark Sky Park, offers the alien-like joshua trees and incredible rock formations, which both create a lovely setting for any stargazing experiences.

The lesser-known Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, on the other hand, offers 650,000 acres of desert to explore, making it the largest desert state park in the continental United States. Pre-historic rock paintings, the Wind Caves and Mud Caves, Coyote Canyon and Shell Reef are on display during the day, while at night, the International Dark Sky Community's low levels of light pollution make for breathtaking night views.
