People are making plans for where to see the next total solar eclipse, and there’s one location you won’t want to miss.
Niagara Falls was selected #11 in the Best of the World 2024 category by National Geographic as one of the Top 20 Travel Experiences.
The sky will darken for around three and a half minutes on April 8 at 3:18 p.m., when the moon passes squarely in front of the Sun and Earth. Niagara Falls is believed to be in the path of totality.
According to Janice Thomson, president and CEO of Niagara Falls Tourism, the organization is excited to welcome everyone to witness the amazing eclipse.
“You will be able to see one marvel directly above another during the eclipse, which is one of those unique and uncommon occasions. We anticipate that it will be a fantastic occasion that will leave a lasting impression on everyone who attends,” Thomson stated.
Both the American and Canadian sides offer views of the total solar eclipse. Terrapin Point, Prospect Point, and the Observation Tower are the best places to see the falls on the US side. Table Rock Center is the place to be on the Canadian side.
Famous locations with the best views are the Niagara SkyWheel, which is situated on the Clifton Hill strip in Canada, and the Skylon Tower, which is located across the border in Canada.
An added bonus is that the rainbow over the falls will become pink if the clouds stay away and it’s a sunny day.
