Where To Stay

Finding lodging is one of the big challenges for Eclipse Weekend nation-wide.  Start working on this now!  This page is dedicated to helping you find a place to stay.  To help speed that process up, there is a list of places which are already full.  However, please feel free to contact them about being placed on their waiting list.

Expect the roads to be completely full after the Total Solar Eclipse on Monday as people try to race home to be at work, school, etc. on Tuesday.  If at all possible, to make your visit more enjoyable,  consider staying Monday night and leaving Tuesday morning.
