Eclipse Chasers Rushing for Lodging Along Coast-to-Coast Path

HomeAway vacation rentals in remote locations along eclipse path booking fast.


AUSTIN, Texas, July 5, 2017 – On August 21, Americans will embrace their dark sides as day suddenly becomes night, when the first total solar eclipse visible in 99 years travels a path from Oregon to South Carolina. With eclipse-mania fast on the rise, HomeAway® is seeing heavy demand for vacation rentals that day in the likes of Farmington, Missouri, Hopkinsville, Kentucky and other off-the-beaten-path locales that are ideal for eclipse-gazing, but lack nearby hotel and motel options.


“We are seeing eclipse fans looking to escape the bright city lights in droves,” said Melanie Fish, travel expert for HomeAway, the world leader in vacation home rentals. “While vacation homes in resort areas along the path like Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Victor, Idaho are almost fully booked, there are terrific properties available in beautiful, lesser-known locales.”


The top five states for vacation rental availability, as of June 28, 2017, on HomeAway during the eclipse are:
