The 19 Best Places to Catch the Great American
The only large city in the U.S. to fall within the eclipse’s path of totality (granted it’s right near the southern edge, but still in it), Nashville's total darkness starts at 1:27 p.m. and lasts a minute and 55 seconds. But you'll get three hours of viewing action from the start of the partial eclipse to the time the moon finally releases its shadow on the sun. And the party in Music City, of course, will go from early till late.
As you can see, Nashville is the place to be! And with all the free fun you can have in Music City, including free music all day every day, Nashville is the best all around. Start planning your trip now.
