Before the movie or even the book, the United States dedicated a park specifically to Jurassic dinosaurs. Dinosaur National Monument straddles the border between Colorado and Utah, a national park stuffed to the canyons with fossils from dinosaurs that roamed long ago.
Arizona is one of the places that has made a vocal stand in support of making their skies more friendly to letting the night shine freely. Recognized as a place of exceptional nighttime beauty, Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument is the newest Dark Sky Park.
Everything's bigger in Texas, including their Dark Sky park. Big Bend National Park in the southwest of Texas stretches over 300,000 square kilometers for your stargazing pleasure. The dry air and exceptionally flat landscape will allow you to peek at stars barely above the horizon.

Nestled in Chile's Elqui Valley, Elqui Domos is perfectly situated for a spectacular view of the night sky. To cater to astronomers looking to revel in the region's starry vistas, the hotel hosts its very own observatory, as well as rooms with windows pointed skyward.
Vacations are supposed to be a chance to travel to an exotic locale, enjoy a week of rest and relaxation, and leave your worries behind. But if your destination can only be reached by plane, your trip ends up being wrapped in hours of stress while you're flying to and from your vacation spot.
It may be warm and nice or rainy and miserable outside but, most probably, you have office weather in your office cubicle. Wouldn't you rather be in one of these dream vacation houses now? They have to be the most relaxing and beautiful buildings on Earth. Or at least in the top 10. Dream on.
Casey Neistat, filmmaker and awesome liver of life, set off on a worldwide trek that blazed through New York, Paris, Rome, Johannesburg, Egypt, Thailand, Japan and more in just 10 days. It's like a spin around the world in fast forward.
Die hard Star Wars fan might know this already but for the rest, here's your next vacation: Tunisia. Four of the Star Wars filmed in Tunisia (as the planet Tatooine) and most of the buildings are still in good shape, which means you can visit it. It's Star Wars, but instead of being a galaxy far, far away, it's on…
