Angel Welcome Bed & Breakfast is in an amazing positioning for the upcoming full solar eclipse on April 8, 2024. We are in one of the best spots for viewing the eclipse in the United States, as we are in the path of totality. This is the last full solar eclipse until 2044!
Only locations where the Moon’s shadow completely covers the Sun – known as the path of totality – will experience a total solar eclipse, and we are in that area! We expect the partial eclipse to begin just before 2pm EDT – make sure you are prepared with your solar viewing glasses (never look directly into the sun, even during a full eclipse). The totality will begin at 3:13 pm. EDT, hit maximum totality at 3:15pm, then finish totality at 3:17 pm. You want to be watching and ready so you don’t miss it! The partial eclipse will then continue until it ends at 4:29pm.
Since April 8th is on a Monday, it’s the perfect opportunity to take a special Sunday-Tuesday (or longer) Eclipse Getaway – start your stay on Sunday night to get a great sleep in our comfortable beds, eat a filling and delicious homemade breakfast, and then relax until it’s time to head to our lovely garden to view the solar show! After this incredible event, enjoy a lovely walk in the beautiful town of Milan, then dinner at one of the restaurants on the town square.
After another restful night’s slumber and yummy breakfast, head out to any one of the many things to do in North-Central Ohio, then repeat! After you take your reluctant leave, you’ll fondly remember your Eclipse getaway forever. We all need something special to look forward to, and should take those opportunities when we can.
Update: Although we are now fully booked for the eclipse, it’s not too late to get on our waiting list – if someone else cancels, we will contact people on the list in the order they signed up – you may still have a chance!
