Minnesota’s Voyageurs National Park Was Named One Of The World’s Best Places To See The Stars

Where do you go when you want to catch a star-filled glimpse of the night sky? If you’re like many Minnesotans, you head to one of the state’s remote parks, usually up north. Others may head to areas known for their starry skies, like the Boundary Water or the small town of McGregor. Today, we’d like to add another entry to that list. The International Dark Sky Association, an organization that recognizes places free of light pollution, has designated Minnesota’s only national park as an International Dark Sky Park. Voyageurs National Park is one of the best places not only in Minnesota but in the entire world, to see the stars. Read on below about this incredible place:
