Eclipse Tips

10 TIPS FOR THIS YEAR’S SOLAR ECLIPSE – provided by the Wyoming Office of Tourism.

The total solar eclipse will take place Monday, August 21st, 2017. To help you travel to, in and around Wyoming, we’ve pulled together 10 tips to make your eclipse-viewing experience memorable.


1. Travel through Wyoming may be slower than usual before, during and after the eclipse. Give yourself more time than you think you need when road tripping through the state.

2. Gas up and grab a highway map for exploring Wyoming’s wideopen spaces. Don’t depend solely on your cell phone for navigation.

3. Don’t forget to explore. Wyoming is full of incredible destinations and attractions, from fly-fishing to hiking and dinosaur digs to museums.

4. Practice patience. You may encounter longer wait times at restaurants, hotels and shops.

5. When viewing the eclipse, you must wear specialty eclipse glasses.

6. Don’t park alongside interstates, highways or roads.

7. Be aware of your surroundings; don’t trespass on private property.

8. If you’re not sure about area restrictions (fire, parking, camping), inquire at a local visitors center, chamber of commerce of USFS/BLM office.

9. If you can’t make it to the path of totality in Wyoming, rest assured you’ll still see a partial eclipse. All of Wyoming will experience at least a 93 percent eclipse.

10. Keep up with the latest eclipse information at or on Twitter at @WyomingTourism. Have photos? We’d love to see them! Share your images on social with #ThatsWY and #WYEclipse.
