Because it’s so far from the bright lights of any major city, Tonopah’s night skies are considered among the best in the country for stargazing. Tour our Historic Mining Park & visit the Central Nevada Museum. Go off-roading or visit nearby ghost towns. Shop in unique stores, discover local artists & even pan for gold during our annual Jim Butler Days celebration!
Tonopah was rated the #1 Stargazing Destination in America by USA Today. With some of the darkest night skies in the nation, you can see over 7,000 stars, including the Milky Way. Just look up! No telescope necessary!
