It is pretty hard to get a good view of the night sky even if you go to the beach because of all the city lights, which is exactly why Kirby Storter Roadside Park is so amazing - it offers you a place with less light pollution so you can get a great view of the Milky Way and constellations. This park has a mile long roundtrip boardwalk that is easy for strolling and stargazing.
Additionally, this park offers the ability to enjoy the cypress swamps without getting dirty or wet, and at the end, there is an overlook great for viewing the many types of local wildlife and the night sky.
No matter what time in the day you visit, you are in for a treat. This park offers great sunset views, unbelievable panoramic landscape, and the best moments to wish upon a star.
This majestic park is located at 48900 Tamiami Trail E, Ochopee, FL 34141. Currently, there is a temporary road closure for Kirby's Boardwalk. To know more information about the roads opening before visiting check here.
