Apri 2024 Total eclipse path of totality?

Just thinking ahead!

Is San Antonio on the path of totality or does it miss it? http://www.hermit.org/eclipse/2024-04-08/

Thank you for your help.

PS If the city is south of the central path, what town is on the central path which is worth driving to for the day, and how far away is that? Is this doable?

Here's a link to NASA's map. Zoom in to get a look at the path. Looks like Fredericksburg and Kerrville will be prime spots near SA. …nasa.gov/SEgoogle/…SE2024Apr08Tgoogle.html

Thank you Texhills

Are either of those places worth a day trip from SA - what else to see there? About how long a drive each way are they?

Texhills gave you spot on info.

Kerrville & Fredericksburg are both worth a day trip. Kerrville is about 1 hr away & Fredericksburg about 45 min away. They are very nice quaint little town with lots of history + a spectacular view of the Hill Country.

Here are the website so you can check them out to see what they have to offer & if it interest you.

Kerrville www.kerrvilletexascvb.com

Fredericksburg www.Fredericksburg-texas.com

There are also wineries up there if that interest you as well. www.texaswinetrail.com

Any more ??? on anything feel free to ask away. ???

That time of year is already a popular time for people to visit because it's wildflower season. Plan on 2-3 days in the Hill Country to enjoy it all.
