It's full of stars

The fascination with the sky doesn't stop after a spectacular sunset. Death Valley, so far removed from human habitation, offers unbeatable views of the stars. So when you come visit Death Valley National Park, plan on staying at least one night so you can enjoy the view and fully appreciate the saying, "A blanket of stars."
