2024 Solar Eclipse

ECLIPSE 2024Get ready for the celestial show of a lifetime! On April 8, 2024, the world will witness a total solar eclipse that's set to outshine its predecessor, lasting a mind-blowing 3 minutes and 37 seconds—almost double the awe-inspiring spectacle of 2017's event.

Hot Springs National Park, nestled in the heart of Arkansas, is the prime spot to catch this cosmic spectacle. With over a year of meticulous preparations, the city is geared up to welcome travelers seeking the ultimate total experience on April 8, 2024. Positioned midway between the centerline and the eastern edge of the eclipse path, Hot Springs guarantees a substantial duration of totality, an incredible 3 minutes and 37 seconds right in the heart of downtown.

Now, why is this Hot Springs extra special? Well, it's not just any national park—it's one of only two in the entire United States perfectly placed within the path of totality. Hot Springs isn't just about the eclipse; it's a historic resort town boasting tourist amenities that promise an unforgettable experience. But with great spectacle comes great planning! Local businesses are already cooking up plans for out-of-this-world "eclipse watch parties" to spread out the crowds, while city officials are hard at work ensuring safety and managing the hustle and bustle.

Mark your calendars! Hot Springs will witness a momentous event!
