For travelers seeking the ultimate stargazing destinations this summer, Colorado is the perfect place to visit as six locations in the state were just designated “Dark Sky destinations” by The International Dark-Sky Association, a nonprofit that works to preserve skies and combat light pollution. Governor Jared Polis also recently proclaimed June as “Dark Sky Month” to celebrate Colorado’s unpolluted skies and raise awareness of them as a resource and the problems caused by light pollution.
Located on the Colorado/Utah border and cradled in the shadow of the Palisade rock formation, my client Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa is the ideal base for travelers to experience luxury and memorable stargazing both on property and nearby in Norwood, CO, one of the selected sites. Guests will depart with a deeper understanding after gazing at Colorado’s stunning sky with Zebulon Miracle, the resort’s on-site curator of curiosity, who hosts stargazing experiences to share his vast knowledge of the planets and constellations.
Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa caters to the most discerning traveler with 72 luxury guest rooms and suites, including 14 private casitas. The property delights guests with savory dining options, wellness-focused treatments at The Spa at Gateway Canyons, canyon air tours and trips aboard a luxury helicopter, privileged access to more than 100 years of automotive history and design at the Gateway Canyons Auto Museum, and a variety of self-selected experiential activities offered through the on-site Adventure Center and Driven Experiences programs.
