Top 5 Vacation Destinations In Star Wars

The only thing better than a vacation is a Star Wars themed summer vacation (and no, I’m not talking about the Lego movie one). It is true that you can’t say Star Wars without Wars, but that is not all the galaxy has to offer. Star Wars is full of beautiful vistas that take your breath away! There is such a rich and diverse variety of planets that some of them actually seem like appealing places one would love to visit.

I’m not talking about the harsh nature of Tatooine or the unbearable hostility of Hoth. I’m talking about the beauty and temperate forests of Endor. The breath-taking sunrises and warm colors seen from Cloud City on Bespin! Here are five of the most ideal places to visit if one could visit that galaxy far, far away.

Scarif

Scarif is a tropical planet located in the Outer Rim of the galaxy, and it’s home to one of the Empire’s most well-protected military installations. Despite its association with the Galactic Empire, this system could make an excellent vacation destination for those who enjoy the beach, sun, and adventure.

Scarif boasts a warm climate, white sandy beaches, and crystal-clear waters, making it perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and surfing. Visitors could also explore the vibrant rainforests and admire the stunning flora and fauna, such as the towering palm trees and colorful birds. For those who love adventure, Scarif offers activities such as boating and snorkeling.

Moreover, history buffs could visit the Imperial archives and learn about the planet’s involvement in the Galactic Civil War, including the Battle of Scarif. The system’s remote location and the fact that it was only accessible through a heavily guarded planetary shield adds an element of exclusivity to the destination, making it an even more desirable vacation spot for those looking for something off the beaten path.

Coruscant

Coruscant, the capital planet of the Galactic Empire, is an excellent vacation destination for those who love the excitement and vibrancy of a bustling city. Its towering skyscrapers, neon lights, and bustling streets make for a lively and dynamic atmosphere that’s perfect for tourists!

Visitors to Coruscant could take part in a variety of activities such as exploring the planet’s many red-light districts, the Senate Building, and the Jedi Temple. The planet is also home to some of the galaxy’s best restaurants, bars, and nightclubs, providing visitors with an exciting nightlife scene.

 Don’t miss out on the opera, a favorite activity of Emperor Palpatine’s. You can visit Monument Plaza, where the last bit of exposed rock (the mountain peak of Umate) is fully visible, a major tourist attraction. They say if you can make it to Coruscant you can make it anywhere!

Rakata Prime

Rakata Prime is a fascinating planet known for its mysterious and ancient ruins left behind by the Rakata, an ancient and powerful species. Its unique history and unexplored terrain make it an exciting and unique vacation destination.

Visitors to Rakata Prime could explore the planet’s many ancient ruins, including the remains of the Star Forge, a massive Rakata construct capable of producing powerful warships. They could also take part in archaeological expeditions, learning about the planet’s history and discovering ancient artifacts.
