San Antonio’s Best Eclipse Viewing Experiences

April 8, 2024

Texas is one of the lucky states to be in the Great North American Eclipse’s path of totality, meaning you get a front-row seat to the best show on Earth. The next total solar eclipse that can be seen from the United States won’t occur again until 2044. So you definitely can’t miss this! Here are some of the best eclipse events in San Antonio to catch the action.

Please note, you'll need to be in the city’s Northwest/La Cantera area or nearby Hill Country to see the Eclipse Totality on the afternoon of April 8, 2024. Not all of the events listed below are in the path of totality.
