Best Vermont Bed and Breakfast for Solar Eclipse 2024
On April 8, 2024, Vermont will be in the direct path of the total solar eclipse.

Other ideal eclipse-viewing Vermont towns include Burlington, Montpelier, St Johnsbury, Hardwick, Newport, St. Albans, Waterbury, and Winooski.
Vermont hasn’t seen a total eclipse since 1932. Learn more about the 1932 solar eclipse in this Burlington Free Press article.
