On August 21st, the “Great American Total Solar Eclipse” will be viewable to millions across the United States. It is the first time in 38 years that the United States will get to witness this spectacular event. What makes this solar eclipse all the more remarkable is that it will be the first coast-to-coast total eclipse in a century!
The blissful Sea Islands are simply the best place to see one of most unique solar experiences. From walking along the beautiful beaches to visiting the neighboring town of Beaufort, there’s plenty of things to do for the whole family while you aren’t waiting for the big show!
Natural Retreats has beach homes still available, perfect for every size group. The Xplore team will be sure to keep you busy when the eclipse is over with awesome activities like kayaking, canoeing, and dolphin watching.
If beaches aren’t your scene check out Natural Retreats’ cabin rentals, in the Great Smoky Mountains, which will fall under the path of totality for the eclipse, making it another perfect destination to view the eclipse! With Dollywood just a short drive away and amazing hikes right outside your doorstep, the Great Smoky Mountains will keep you entertained all week long.
Both these destinations offer over 90% visibility of the eclipse and some of the best views across the country. All Natural Retreats homes come with complimentary eclipse glasses and the Xplore Team will give you an accurate timeline of when you will be able to view this fantastic cosmic event!
