It won’t be long now, skygazers! The total solar eclipse will hang over Canada this spring and you’ll want the best view possible.

From coast to coast, most North Americans will have a seat for the show, but who will be front row on April 8th when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth?

In an effort to give you the experience of a lifetime, booking giants, KAYAK broke down the top 10 cheapest destinations to visit near the path of totality and one city on our side of the border actually made the cut!

“Considering the last total eclipse was in August 2017 – and the next won’t be for 20 more years – this really is an event to travel for,” they wrote.

“Travellers are already getting prepped: we’ve seen a 304% increase in flight searches and a 15x increase in hotel searches for the dates around the eclipse vs. the same time last year. So you better make a plan quick.”
