The Solar Eclipse will take place during the height of the County’s peak tourism months. While the number of unique eclipse visitors is hard to approximate, both residents and visitors should expect increased activity on roadways, neighborhoods, public facilitates, restaurant parks and beaches. Hotels, VRDs, campgrounds and group facilities will all be at peak capacity.
