We went to Gallatin, TN and got to experience the totality. It was incredible. We didn't go to the park where they were having a huge 50,000+ crowd and tons of festivities. We didn't need all of that. We got to see the best show from right near our hotel. The 2024 eclipse will be on my birthday. My kids are already making plans to go see it, and reminding me that they'll be old enough to drive me there by then. If you get a chance to go see one, do. I remember the 1984 Annular eclipse and it was pretty amazing, but to see the totality was so much MORE than amazing. It was just one of the most remarkable experiences that I will ever have, and everyone that I know that saw it has said that they felt the same way.
