The place to be for the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse

On April 8, 2024, Tupper Lake, NY in the middle of New York's Adirondack Park will be one of the prime locations to view an exceptional event – a total solar eclipse. This isn't just an amazing sight, it's also rare! A total solar eclipse happens over the same place on earth about once every 400 years - so you won't want to miss this chance to watch it from the Adirondacks.
