Meteor showers aren’t all that rare. They happen every summer. But with light pollution, it’s not always easy to experience the stunning beauty of it all. But the is one internationally recognized place, right here in Michigan, that allows you to see the grandeur of a meteor shower. 
Up in Mackinaw City, in Emmett County, there’s Headlands Dark Sky Park. It’s the only “internationally designated Dark Sky Park in the state“.

Here’s a spur of the moment idea: Make a reservation, and pack the car and get up there Thursday night or Friday night for a light show like no other.

If you don’t want to drive that far, here’s something only about 90 minutes away. “Meteors and s’mores” at Warren Dunes State Park in Berrien County. “Bring blankets, seating, bug spray and snacks and enjoy a night of stargazing – campers and visitors are all welcome! Complimentary s’mores and campfires are part of the celebration. Designated viewing areas will be specified.”
