Eclipse Visitors Experienced Western Hospitality and Smooth Operations in Jackson Hole

The Total Solar Eclipse that swept across the country on Monday, August 21 drew astronomy fans, curious families, photographers, and others to Jackson Hole. With staff trained and ready, the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce spent that last few days welcoming over 25,000 visitors at their three visitor centers, Home Ranch Welcome Center, the Jackson Hole and Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center, and the Administrative Offices on Broadway.

Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce Vice President Rick Howe, IOM commented, “We had an incredible mix of guests from all over the world. Most had planned their trips years out and were here to celebrate. We saw a vast majority try to experience the eclipse in the national parks and forests which left the town viewing sites an eclectic mix of scientists, fanatics, and awe inspired first timers.” Read more.
