On Monday, August 21, 2017 there will be a total eclipse of the sun. Blue Ridge will have a front row seat to witness the eclipse in totality. We only have a handful of North Georgia vacation rentals homes still available! Click the link or call 844-430-9778 to not miss this incredible opportunity. This will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the U.S. in 38 years, and the next one will take place April 8, 2024.
The Blue Ridge Chamber of Commerce has put together a viewing guide with recommendations for locations. Additionally they have noted, "In Blue Ridge, the partial phase of totality will begin at 1:04:55 p.m., with totality starting at 2:35:07 p.m. The town of Blue Ridge is on the southern edge of the shadow, so totality, when the moon's shadow fully blocks the sun's light, only lasts for 35 seconds. However north and east of Blue Ridge in Fannin County, in McCaysville and Morganton, the totality lasts longer up to 1 minute 59 seconds."
They are also offering free solar eclipse glasses, which we will have available to you upon check-in at our downtown Blue Ridge office.
