Blairsville, Georgia

This beautiful, off-the-radar northern Georgia mountain town will be discovered by eclipse-goers, at least when it falls within the path of totality. About 2.5 hours north of Atlanta, Blairsville will get about two minutes of total darkness from 2:34 p.m. Stick around after the excitement subsides to enjoy the area's great hiking trails and bass fishing.

Watch: With 106 miles of shoreline, Lake Nottely is a pretty place to watch things unfold, as is Vogel State Park.

Stay: Laurel Mountain Cabins has some sweet cabin options as does Sunrise Cabins, along the banks of the Nottely River.
