Southwestern Kentucky will get the best show in the state, with these cities located in the path of totality: Adairville, Fredonia, Hopkinsville, Princeton, Dycusburg, Eddyville, Elkton and Salem.
If you live in the music capital of the world, there's a chance you'll get an amazing celestial show. Since Nashville is right on the southern edge of the totality path, you'll need to go to the northernmost part of the city to see totality. And according to advice from Eclipse2017.org, trek 40 to 60 miles north to get a better view.
Most places in Georgia will be south of the path of totality, though Dillard and Sky Valley should see a complete eclipsing of the sun.
Only the southwestern tip of the state of North Carolina will be located in the path of totality.While Andrews will see the total eclipse, a few other cities are right on the northern edge of this path of totality, meaning you should head to the southern part of the city to see totality. And according to Eclipse2017.org, better yet, travel 40 to 60 miles south to get an even better view.
In South Carolina, you may be able to sit on the beach and watch the eclipse, at least if you're near a city located in the path of totality: Charleston is close to the southern edge of the path, so if you head 30-50 miles (50 to 80 kilometers) north, you'll see even more of the show, according to Eclipse2017.org. Beach spots between Charleston and Georgetown should be right inside the path, with the peak of the eclipse occurring around 2:48 p.m. CDT on the coast.
