With hundreds of thousands of people expected to travel to witness this rare event, Ohio and other places in totality could see a major tourism boom.

TOLEDO, Ohio — Now just a month away, the total solar eclipse of April 8, will bring hundreds of thousands of tourists to the Buckeye State to witness totality. This influx of tourism will benefit local businesses in small towns across northwest Ohio and much of the country. 

The 2017 total solar eclipse, described as the “Great American Eclipse”, provides insight into the expected impacts of the 2024 eclipse. In 2017, 215 million Americans witnessed the total solar eclipse either in-person or virtually. 

The 2017 path of totality stretched from the southeastern to northwestern United States, spanning from South Carolina to Oregon. The state of South Carolina saw 1.6 million tourists, contributing an estimated $270 million in total economic impact. These financial contributions ranged from hotel bookings to dining expenses and souvenir purchases.
