On the eve of the solar eclipse to take place on April 8, Texas will become the center of attention for travelers. This is evidenced by the forecast of the Great American Eclipse team.

According to their data, more than a million tourists will come to this state, making it the most popular place to watch the solar eclipse out of the 48 states. According to their data, a total of 931,000 to 3.73 million people are expected to attend, reports.

The Great American Eclipse estimates that about 31 million people in the United States already live in the path of the total eclipse, with more than 12.78 million people living in Texas.

According to their estimates, these people are most likely to want to witness the natural wonder that is a solar eclipse, and travelers are most likely to go to watch this world spectacle.

Texas was ranked first among the states where the solar eclipse will be visible, surpassing the other 14 states that will be located along the path of the eclipse. Indiana, which is in 2nd place, is projected to have around 131,000 to 522,000 out-of-state visitors, followed by Ohio (third place) with around 125,000 to 500,000 tourists.

Which cities in Texas are the best to view the eclipse

According to experts, the largest influx of tourists will be in Hill Country and Central Texas. By the way, Kerrville will see a large influx of travelers due to its close proximity to the center of the eclipse path. Besides it, San Antonio is on the list of places to visit.

Another good place to see the eclipse is the Dallas-Fort Worth area, which is home to about 7 million people.

If you like less noisy cities, then you should go to the quiet areas of Texas, where you can also see the solar eclipse: the Uvalde area and Eagle Pass. In addition to the solar eclipse in these regions, you might be lucky enough to see an incredible night sky.

How the best location was analyzed

To analyze the best location, US Census data, ArcGIS software, and the country's "digital road network" were used to identify eclipse destinations within the full path and the shortest routes to the destination. In addition, typical state weather conditions were taken into account to determine the likelihood of higher attendance.
