Solar Eclipse 2024: Is Your City in the Path of Totality?

City Guide, Event, Family Friendly, Seasonal


Written by Step Out Columbus

Published on March 20, 2024

If you are sick of hearing about the 2024 Solar Eclipse without knowing whether your city is actually in the path of totality, then you and I are very similar people.

There are so many resources available to find the general path, but there aren’t any sources that list out the specific cities in Central Ohio that are within the path of totality!

That’s why we’re here, and yes, we can hear you through the screen saying “Oh Step Out Columbus, what would we do without your heroic blog post?!” We don’t know, but we are just happy to help.

This list will be separated into two categories. The first category are cities where *parts* of the city will receive totality, while other parts will NOT! We will generally distinguish which areas in the city will receive totality.

The second category are cities that are fully in the path of totality, though the further north and west you live in relation to the city limits, the longer totality will last.

Make sense? Great!

Cities partially in the path of totality:

  • Columbus (Olde Sawmill, Far Northwest, Crosswoods, Polaris, Brookside Woods areas)
  • Hartford (north side)
  • Hilliard (north and west sides)
  • London (north and west sides)
  • Mount Vernon (central, north, east, and west sides)
  • Upper Arlington (north side)
  • Westerville (west side along I-71)
  • West Jefferson (west side)
  • Worthington (north and west sides)
