Can’t find a room in Casper? Book your room in Gillette (approximately 90 minutes north of Casper) and take a shuttle to Casper for the Eclipse!
Gillette is just outside the eclipse’s “line of totality”, but will still enjoy 96.7% total darkness. But, we understand that if you are going to travel all the way to Wyoming to experience a 100% total solar eclipse, you’ll wan to be in the line of total darkness.
So, not only is Gillette accommodating folks who can’t find a room in Casper, but we’re also offering shuttle van rides to Casper and back for the eclipse August 21st!
The cool part is, Gillette is hosting it’s own eclipse festival- the Energy Capital Eclipse Festival- taking place August 18-21 with concerts, a car show, family activities, games, craft beer, planetarium show and much more. Gillette also offers visitors tours of one of the largest surface coal mins in the Powder River Basin, the largest, privately owned buffalo ranch in the U.S. as well as historic Main Street and scenic byways.
And, Gillette is located just one hour from Devils Tower, the nation’s first national monument. Guided tours are available!
