The Best Vacation Spots for Stargazing


Bryce Canyon National Park
Bryce Canyon, Utah

At Bryce Canyon National Park, the canyon's pink and orange rock formations create a surreal backdrop for viewing 7,500 stars from this park's remote location. Need help? Bryce Canyon's Dark Rangers -- expert volunteers and staff -- are at the ready to help you find the Big Dipper. Don't miss the 12th Annual Astronomy Festival (May 17 - 20), where visitors can see model-rocket launches and peer through more than 50 telescopes, with a grand finale of a rare annular solar eclipse, in which the moon is this close to covering the sun. Take in the views from your car for $25 for a weeklong pass.

Grab a Bite: Pizza Place, a local favorite, is a 10-minute drive away. Try the BBQ Chicken Pizza Family Special ($25) on the outdoor patio for wow-worthy views of Aquarius Plateau.
