World Astronomy Destinations


Great Basin National Park, Nevada

Great Basin National Park is a designated Dark Sky Park, and it hosts a ton of fun astro-tourism experiences. Each week, its Dark Sky Rangers offer a range of programming for star enthusiasts, like full moon hikes and lectures at the park's new Astronomy Amphitheater. It's also home to the Great Basin Astronomy Festival, held this year in late September. Also nearby is the scenic Nevada Northern Railway, which offers a nighttime Sunset, Stars & Champagne Train ride experience. During the day, travelers can explore the region's caves, mountains and forests.
