2024 Solar Eclipse to Bring Heavy U.S. Travel

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America. As millions of Americans are expected to travel to see the celestial event, experts recommend booking your accommodations as soon as possible.

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over parts of Canada, the United States, and Mexico—plunging some cities into complete darkness for more than four minutes as the moon passes between the sun and Earth.

Mexico’s Pacific coast will be the first location to experience totality. The path will continue into the U.S. through Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. The eclipse will enter Canada in Ontario and continue through Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland.

During the last solar eclipse in 2017, more than 20 million Americans traveled to see the celestial event, and it’s likely that even more people will be traveling this year since the next total solar eclipse visible in the contiguous U.S. won’t occur until 2044.

A recent report by Expedia shows a steep increase in hotel searches for April 5–8 for locations in the path of totality, up 6000% in some cities. The most popular cities for spectators include:
  • Buffalo, New York
  • Niagara Falls, New York
  • Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Burlington, Vermont
  • Little Rock, Arkansas

But the increase isn’t limited to hotels. Airbnb has seen a nearly 300% rise in searches for listings within the U.S. path of the eclipse compared to the same time last year. And RVshare released similar findings, revealing a 324% increase in RV bookings for the solar eclipse weekend compared to Memorial Day weekend (historically the most popular time for RV travelers).

With surging demand and availability dwindling, experts recommend booking your accommodations as soon as possible. If driving, be prepared for heavy traffic, especially soon after the eclipse ends. And, most importantly, don’t forget your solar eclipse safety glasses.
