This Enchanting Star Park Will Let You Experience Nebraska Like Never Before

As a predominantly rural state, Nebraska enjoys plenty of areas with skies dark enough to see millions of stars at night. But there’s one special place that’s considered the very best spot in the state to go stargazing.

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/

You don’t have to wait for the official Star Party to enjoy Merritt Reservoir State Recreation Area’s stargazing and other excellent outdoor activities. The recreation area is open to visitors all year, and it’s well worth a visit.
