World Astronomy Destinations


Shenandoah National Park or Virginia Beach, Virginia

While Virginia may not be known for its stargazing opportunities, it really should be! From its westernly Shenandoah National Park to its coastal Virginia Beach, the state offers plenty of opportunities for stargazing for both avid astronomers and newbies just looking for a beautiful night sky.

The wide sandy Virginia Beach is home to its very own astronomy association and offers nearby experiences like a night sky boat tour, an accessible Boardwalk Astronomy program, the Virginia Beach Planetarium and a fun tour led by a local astronomer called The Nature Bus: The Night Sky, a four-hour tour held at the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge.

In Shenandoah National Park, families can enjoy ranger-led programs in the national park, like the Night Sky Festival, and continue their stargazing adventures by staying at nearby Massanutten Resort.
