Event: The Cowboy State of Wyoming in The Real America region is set to be one of the best locations in the USA to view the rare solar eclipse that will take place on 21 August 2017. Visitors interested in viewing the Eclipse and experiencing the Path of Totality should head for Fremont County, Wind River Country, Natrona County (Casper), Goshen, Platte, Converse and Teton County (Jackson) or the Old Yellowstone Highway between Dubois and Casper. The eclipse offers the perfect reason to add Wyoming to your 2017 bucket list, and with hotels almost all sold out, the recommendation is to book soon to avoid missing out and to consider a motorhome trip. While in Wyoming, British holidaymakers can twin eclipse viewing with adventures through the spectacular national parks of Yellowstone and Grand Teton, and get a taste of the Wild West with stops in the towns of Jackson, Cody and Buffalo. Mad River Boat Trips still have space on their white water rafting special eclipse boat trip: http://mad-river.com/specials-packages/solar-eclipse-special-16-man-raft, but participants need to have accommodation booked separately in Jackson, WY or by RV.
