Columbus, Indiana, is in the path of totality for the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse, and we could not be more excited! On Monday, April 8, just after 3:00 pm, the sky will darken for almost four minutes.









Hotel rooms are still available in Columbus and Bartholomew County, so book now, as we expect all rooms in our area to completely sell out. Many of our hotels are offering special packages to celebrate the eclipse and are planning eclipse viewing parties on-site. Check out all of the great lodging options.
