Buffalo is one of the best places to be, and that is certainly the case as we plan for one of the best days of the year!

You probably have heard about it already a few times or more, but the solar eclipse is on April 8th. Although the eclipse is only expected to last just a few short minutes, many people are planning trips, flights, and getting the supplies together so they have the best possible view of the eclipse. 

After all, it is the last time that a solar eclipse will be visible from the United States until 2044. That’s a long time! 

Lucky for us, Western New York is one of the best places to watch the total solar eclipse this year, with Chautauqua County being named the #1 spot to watch the unique moment. 

And if you have any friends or family that may want to watch it with you, Oxford Pennant is offering a trip for two to Buffalo! 

Oxford Pennant is an unsung hero in all of this. They are giving away an all-expenses paid trip to Western New York, which will include a view of the total solar eclipse from the South Lawn of Buffalo’s Richardson Hotel. 

Not only will Oxford Pennant cover the round-trip airfare to Buffalo, but they will also be providing a three-night stay in the penthouse suite of The Mansion on Delaware, along with many gift certificates to cover the food costs of your stay in Western New York.

We know: it’s awesome. Buffalo is known for being a city full of foodies, and thankfully many local restaurants have agreed to join in the initiative to bring a lucky pair to Western New York for the best view of the eclipse! 

Entries are currently being accepted through the end of February, and we will find out a winner on March 4th.
