Best Places to See the Total Eclipse of 2017

Monday, August 21, 2017, presents people in the United States with an extraordinary chance to see a total solar eclipse. The last time this type of an eclipse was able to be seen across the continental United States was 38 years ago, in 1979. And this is the first total eclipse to sweep across the entire country since 1918. You must be in the path that sweeps from west to east – across 11 states from Oregon to South Carolina – to see the eclipse in totality. If you are outside the roughly 60-mile wide band, you will not get to see the total eclipse.

City of Rocks National Reserve

At City of Rocks National Reserve in Almo, Idaho, you can enjoy one of the most gorgeous and pristine places in the entire United States for breathtaking scenery, stimulating hiking, challenging rock climbing, and primitive camping.
