Over 2,000 Stars Are Visible To The Naked Eye At Big Bend National Park In Texas

If you’ve ever driven through the West Texas desert, you know just how remote it truly is. What most people don’t understand is that it’s not only one of the most isolated places in our state, but in the entire world. Boasting some of the darkest skies on earth, Big Bend affords visitors the opportunity to see more than 2,000 stars with the naked eye.

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/
