More than 31 million people will see the total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024, including millions in New York State. But where's the best place to see it?

Country Living named two scenic spots in the Empire State as the best places to view the once-in-a-lifetime event.

Slight Change in Path of Totality

Best Places in New York to See Eclipse

Several places in the Empire State offer the perfect setting for the solar eclipse. Country Living named Niagara Falls and the Adirondacks as two of the best spots to take in the special event.

If you're planning to head to Western New York, it'll cost you. Hotels in Niagara Falls can cost as much as $2,500 for a one-night stay and most are probably already sold out.

Camping in the Adirondacks may be difficult too. Most campsites have already been booked.
