August Eclipse – The biggest draw for the US tourism!

Published on : Wednesday, August 16, 2017

indexOn Monday, August 21st, tourism authorities are anticipating as many as 7.4 million visitors to pour in the areas where Moon will overshadow the Sun.

Starting right from Oregon in the west to South Carolina in the east, total eclipse will be visible. However, partial eclipse will be visible from major portion of North America.

To quote Michael Zeiler, from the Great American Eclipse, “Imagine 20 Woodstock festivals occurring simultaneously across the nation. Large numbers of visitors will overwhelm lodging and other resources in the path of totality.

“There is a real danger during the two minutes of totality that traffic still on the road will pull over at unsafe locations with distracted drivers behind them.”

It is expected to be the first total solar eclipse that will traverse the United States entirely since 1918.

To quote Simon Calder, the Independent’s Travel Editor as explained to the Sky News: “It’s going to be, I think, the greatest movement of human beings for the purposes of tourism in history – and that’s what’s really worrying the American authorities.

“The path of totality goes over a large number of significant cities – such as St Louis, Nashville in Tennessee and many other places and, of course, it’s within a few hours’ drive of tens of millions of people.”
