The Incredible Moment When Idaho Will Go Dark That Will Go Down In History

If you haven’t already, mark your calendars. Idaho is about to witness something truly spectacular. On August 21, 2017 a total solar eclipse will occur for the first time in nearly a century! Because of this phenomenon, the sun will disappear for just a few minutes during the middle of the day, making it seem like night. The best part is that Idaho is a prime spot for viewing this specific eclipse! Idaho is expecting thousands of visitors from all over the world on that day so you better start preparing if you haven’t yet planned how you’re going to see this amazing moment.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
