Virginia Has Been Named The East Coast’s Best Stargazing State And These Parks Will Show You Why

Isn’t there something so magical about stargazing? No matter the depth of your knowledge of astronomy, it’s hard to deny the allure of the night sky. Here in Virginia, we’re lucky to have a few designated dark sky parks, places where the night sky is so visible thanks to the absence of light pollution that stargazing is optimal. Below, we’ve listed some of the best places for stargazing in Virginia, and it proves that the Old Dominion really is the East Coast’s best spot for stargazing.
