On the remote reaches of Florida’s northern Gulf coast, there lies a tiny island that will transport you to the stars. Or at least it’ll feel like it since its sandy shores are so far removed from light pollution, it feels like you're looking through a window into the Milky Way. If you’re keen on adventuring past the regular Florida comforts into something a bit more far-reaching, St. George Island State Park will definitely provide an incredible view of the night sky for your travels.\nThe barrier island of St. George holds miles of undeveloped beach, perfect for year-round fishing, sunsets, and general beach bum shenanigans. But it’s at night when this island really shines, with the chance to see stars, planets, and brilliant celestial bodies.\nThe staff is even working towards making the island a designated Dark Sky Park with the International Dark Sky Association, just like central Florida's Kissimmee Prairie Preserve.\nEditor's Choice: 7 Florida Hotels With The Most Wow-Worthy Pools That'll Make You Forget Traveling Abroad\nWhile the park closes at dusk, there are several ways you can stick around once night falls to appreciate the otherworldly beauty.\nView this post on Instagram 🌌 #galaxy #galaxyart #galaxyphotography #nightsky #stars #starssky🌌 #starwarsgalaxysedge #sky #nightphotography #florida #floridasky #wonderful #ameizing #photographysky A post shared by @ wunderbare_fotos on Apr 20, 2020 at 12:48pm PDT\nYou can reserve a campsite, which is $24 for either a regular tent or an RV.
