Texas Hill Country Eclipses - Clear the Roads Initiative

The Texas Hill Country will be in the bullseye for 2 upcoming solar eclipses. On Saturday, October 14, 2023, we'll be viewing an annular ‘Ring of Fire’ eclipse, and Monday, April 8, 2024 a full solar eclipse will darken our Hill Country skies.

While an eclipse is great news for local tourism, these events will also present challenges. The Bandera-based vacation rental specialists of Backroads Reservations are launching the “Clear the Roads Initiative” through our Texas Hill Country Travel Apps. This collective solution is designed to reduce stress on local resources and traffic congestion by directing travelers to safe and enjoyable eclipse viewing areas with rentable RV parking space. Coming in 2023.
