#15 Immerse yourself in the darkness in Michigan’s Dark Sky Parks

Location: All over Michigan

Michigan is the best place to stargaze in the Eastern United States. Much of this is due to the vast openness of the Great Lakes and sparse populations in the north, and there are several Dark Sky Parks, set aside especially for stargazing. Take a trip to Headlands Dark Sky Park in Mackinaw, Rockport State Recreation Area located in Presque Isle, Negwegon State Park in Alpena and Alcona counties, or Thompson’s Harbor State Park in Presque Isle County.
