CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Getting down to southern Illinois to see the solar eclipse on August 21st could be tough.
Hotel rooms are booked up and traffic might be ugly, but Amtrak says there’s another way.
They’re running a same-day round-trip train between Champaign and Carbondale. If you’re in, a round-trip ticket will set you back $90. It leaves at 5:05 am, and returns after 5 pm. Amtrak says they expect this to sell out quickly.
As a reminder, southern Illinois is supposedly the best place in the whole country to see the eclipse, because that’s where it’ll last the longest.
