Nashville is throwing a party for the solar eclipse

New, 1 comment

It’s the largest city set entirely within the path of totality

Have you heard? There’s a total solar eclipse passing through the entire United States on August 21 for the first time in 99 years, and tourists are flocking to towns located along the path of totality for the chance to witness this rare phenomenon.

Although folks from every part of the country (including Hawaii and Alaska) will be able to see a partial solar eclipse, only those in areas along the 70-mile-wide stretch from South Carolina to Oregon can observe a total solar eclipse.

One city in particular is shaping up to the best—or at least the most fun—locale from which to observe the moon completely blocking out the sun for two minutes: Nashville, Tennessee.

The largest city set entirely within the path of totality, Nashville, aka Music City, is already a tourist hotspot, but with special guest the Solar Eclipse coming to town, it’s going to be an all-out party. Watch the video above to see what’s in store.
