This Remote Little Town In Texas Is One Of The Darkest Places In The Nation

You’ve probably never even heard of the tiny town of Quanah, located just a few miles below the Oklahoma border. Most people haven’t, and that’s part of what makes it such an amazing place to visit. The small population and the International Dark Sky Park designation provide unforgettable nighttime views you simply can’t find anywhere else.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Big Bend Ranch State Park also has an International Dark Sky Park designation, so be sure to visit both this summer!
