Nashville is a great place to be on ANY day, but especially magical on August 21, 2017, when a once-in-a-lifetime event occurs! For the first time in 99 years, a solar eclipse will sweep across the entire United States and Nashville has PRIME REAL ESTATE for this event.
Now they should add, "Best Solar Eclipse Viewing in TN!"
Believe it or not, Mt Juliet has one of the best "seats" to the eclipse nationwide. Charlie Daniels Park will host a free party between 11 am and 3 pm that day. “Eclipse Survival Kits,” which include viewing glasses and T-shirts, will be available for purchase.
Most of the parks are perfect for solar eclipse viewing (and stargazing), but these events also look "out of this world!"
