A Once in a Lifetime Experience

There’s something to be said about totality. The sun disappears during a total solar eclipse and the only visible evidence that it still exists is a faint halo behind the moon. The sky is darkened, and for a few moments, you can just barely see the stars above. You know it’s coming; yet when totality happens, you are completely unprepared for how impactful it really is. Discover for yourself. This year’s solar eclipse promises to be a landmark event that people will no doubt remember as being more than just a footnote in the story of their life; it will be a whole chapter.

Starting in Oregon, the path of totality will cut across the United States in places including Idaho, Nebraska, Missouri and Illinois—last visible in South Carolina. Check out the map for more information, and get travel inspiration as you plan your solar road trip. If this is your first time (or even your seventh time) planning a solar trip, you have come to the right place.
