In a world where it can be difficult to find pockets of the night sky dark enough to view the celestial wonderment above, there is some reprieve in The Sunshine State. In 2016, Big Cypress National Park in Florida was designated an International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) International Dark Sky Place, which is one of the last protected dark skies in the world. In case you need another reason to visit Florida’s Dark Sky Park, the views are only the beginning.
