KJZZ isn’t your typical radio station. You’re already familiar with the engaging content we produce on air and on the web, but did you know that KJZZ also programs great experiences for individuals? Our travel club has become one of the best and exclusive features for KJZZ listeners, and this summer you could fly to Boise, Idaho, to watch the first solar eclipse visible in the contiguous United States in almost forty years.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but options are already running out to watch the eclipse as most hotels have been booked along the path the moon’s shadow will cast from Oregon to South Carolina. The eclipse, able to be seen on a route stretching just 70 miles wide, will last for a mere two minutes at any one location. With only months to go before this long-awaited-for astronomical event takes place, join KJZZ on an extended weekend trip to Idaho.
We’re confident that the skies will be clear at our secluded viewing location in the high desert on August 21, as Boise receives as much sunshine as Phoenix does yet less precipitation than the Valley of the Sun. In addition to watching a total solar eclipse, you will enjoy cooler weather at a ski resort condominium north of Boise, visit the World Center for the Birds of Prey, go hiking in Boise National Forest, and gain a deeper understanding of the solar system from an Arizona astronomer.
Cost: $950 per person
