Hrm. The 2024 Total Eclipse has an interesting path.

Saw this via Facebook: “Although the 2024 solar eclipse won’t travel coast to coast within the United States, it will sweep across the North American continent, beginning in Mexico and traveling northeast toward Canada.” This time the arc is from southwest to northeast, which will end up hitting (I think) more major cities, including Dallas, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Buffalo, and Montreal. …I’ve never been to Montreal, actually. I hear that it’s an interesting place to visit and has some nice battlefields. Although Dallas will have better weather. But what am I gonna do in Dallas?

Anyway, something to think about.

    Dallas ..
    Don’t rent a convertible. You’ll regret it. At least, I did ..
    Do visit the book depository, I hear the tour is worth it.

    Cool. Totality without even having to leave my backyard.
    (Although it’s interesting that the article saw fit to mention a small town in Illinois, but omit Indianapolis altogether.)

  • JustDave says:

    You might wish to take into account weather considerations. Dallas weather will typically be more pleasant on any given April 8th than Montreal, and there could be widespread overcast, even if other conditions are acceptable.


    Of course you take your chances no matter what destination you pick, but (especially if you’re going to fly), as a first pass I’d recommend choosing somewhere warmer than Montreal is likely to be.

    Or, heck, split the difference and visit some of us in flyover country. 🙂

    Granted, from my house, the totality is going to be a day trip.

    If you’re seriously considering a visit to the Fair Republic, fly into San Antonio and the join me a little ways west of there. Great viewing out there, smaller crowds, great bbq and Mexican. You can throw in a visit to the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg. It’s already on my calendar so just let me know. 2024 will be here before you know it.

    While in general I love Montreal as a tourist destination, this is going to be cold, wet, and quite possibly overcast in early April. I would definitely recommend you find a more southerly place to visit.
