People Are Paying Big Money to Stay in Evansville for the Eclipse!
The big solar eclipse is happening next Monday, and people from all over the country are flocking to the tri-state area so they can get as close as possible to the Path of Totality, so they can really see this spectacle! Some people are even paying upwards of $800!
It's near impossible to get a hotel room or Air BNB in the tri-state area to be able to see the eclipse. Now Evansville is in the 99% range for viewing the eclipse, but we are not located far from the path of totality, where people can view a total eclipse.
On Monday when I checked TripAdvisor there were ZERO hotel rooms available in the Evansville area. For fun, I decided to check again today and HOLY HOTEL PRICES BATMAN!
Here's one hotel room that according to TripAdvisor was going for $849 Sunday night into Monday morning!
When I checked again a little while later, this hotel has now been booked. But wow! It's really cool to see our little city be such a hot spot for people all over the country who are wanting to get a view of this solar eclipse.
So if you know someone wanting to travel to the tri-state so they can get a good view of the eclipse, you may want to offer up your spare bedroom. Or you could make some quick cash on Air BNB, like this Newburgh AirBNB going for $500 for the night before the eclipse!
