The Best Place In Florida To Catch The Infinite Magic Of The Milky Way Is Right Here
Unfortunately, light pollution has definitely become more of a thing in Florida, especially if you live in a heavily populated city. However, we have a place that gets dark at night, allowing you to see as much of the night sky as you could hope for. Not only can you camp for the a few days, enjoying the peace and solitude in nature, but this park in Florida also happens to be one of the best places to snag a glimpse of the Milky Way, too.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
