Solar eclipse 2017 and the tourism boom in its path






200 million people live within a day?s drive of the total eclipse On Monday, August 21, a solar eclipse will travel across the entire United States for the first time since 1918. Astronomically, it?s one of the biggest events of the decade. And for towns stretching from the west coast of Oregon to the east coast of South Carolina, it?s also shaping up to be one of their biggest tourism events ever.
For the hundreds of towns in the path of ?totality,? the sun will be completely blocked out by the moon for two minutes and a partial eclipse will be visible for about 1.5 hours. Millions of people across the country are expected to travel in order to see what happens when the moon aligns with the sun, creating a black hole ringed by light.
The impact of the eclipse on the towns and cities in its path can?t be overstated. Experts believe that up to 7.4 million people will visit the path of totality on eclipse day, causing potentially crippling traffic, boosting local coffers by millions of dollars, and resulting in what might be the greatest temporary mass migration of humans to see a natural event in U.S. history. This is the story of solar eclipse boom towns.

The path of the total solar eclipse, stretching from the east coast of South Carolina to the west coast of Oregon.

Where and what?s happening
Eclipses happen every 18 months or so, but many are partial eclipses that can?t be seen well in North America. The hype about the upcoming eclipse stems in part from its rarity; it?s the first time a total solar eclipse has passed from one coast of the U.S. to the other in 99 years.
No matter where you live in the United States, you?ll be able to see what some are calling the great American eclipse. To find out what it will look like near you, Vox has a helpful interactive map of how much you?ll see depending on your ZIP code.
The eclipse?s path makes it accessible to a huge proportion of the country. While 12 million Americans live in the 70-mile-wide path of totality, some 200 million people live within a day?s drive. Yet many of the towns and cities in the path of totality are not large metropolitan areas. The fast-growing city of Nashville, Tennessee?the largest U.S. city in the path of the total eclipse?boasts a metro-area population of just under 2 million people, but most of the other towns in the total solar eclipse path are much smaller.

A post shared by NASA (@nasa) on Aug 8, 2017 at 4:52pm PDT

Urban residents everywhere will be able to see the eclipse as long as it?s not obscured by buildings or cloud cover, but smaller towns and wide-open spaces will ultimately provide better viewing areas. This will result in a huge migration of people from urban areas around the country to less populated, out-of-the-way towns.
In total, GreatAmericanEclipse.com estimates that between 2 million and 7 million people will visit the path of totality, and those numbers could easily grow depending on weather,...
