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.
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.
