Airbnb Media Hit Solar Eclipse 2024

Airbnb recently unveiled their 2024 travel predictions, and Indianapolis has taken center stage as a prime destination. Positioned along the path of totality for the total solar eclipse set to grace the skies on April 8, 2024, Indy has earned its spot as a top place to visit! 

The chosen locations are among the trending cities in the US according to Airbnb, based on global searches by users in the United States. While the eclipse will be visible across the entire country, none will offer the same level of connectivity and accessibility as the "Crossroads of America." Indy is within a day's drive for over half of the nation's population. 

NASA has designated Indy as one of the three official viewing sites for the total solar eclipse, and the city is gearing up for widespread celebrations across the Circle City. Some notable events include: 

  • NASA's live broadcast from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, featuring experts ready to address questions about this scientific phenomenon.  

  • White River State Park will host 40 food trucks and activities in its spacious lawn, providing an ideal vantage point for the eclipse.  

  • Attendees can also learn from our own Hoosier astronaut, Mark Brown, at Conner Prairie. 

Here's a comprehensive list of events capturing our city during the eclipse weekend! 

While Indy has garnered attention worldwide with the total solar eclipse, there are other significant events that you won't want to miss. These include the NBA All-Star Game, three days of Taylor Swift, BUTTER 4 and the Olympic Swimming Trials.
