See the Solar Eclipse in Santee, South Carolina 8/21

Stand in the moon’s shadow and watch daylight turn into a deep twilight. Birds will go to roost, brighter stars will be visible, and the daytime temperature will drop! The path of a total solar eclipse is only a few miles wide even though the path may be several thousand miles long and the last total solar eclipse in the U.S. occurred on February 26, 1979. For the long-awaited total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 totality, come to South Carolina at 2:30 p.m, directly over Lake Marion and I-95 in Santee! The best way to check it out is staying overnight either the night before or the night of the Eclipse at historic Clark’s Inn & Restaurant, just west of exit 98 on Highway 6.

Travelers have enjoyed staying at Clark’s for years on their way north or south on I-95. Over the years Santee has become even more popular for the great golf and superb fishing, making Clark’s the ideal home for their extended stays in pursuit of the great catch or game.

There is a reason as to why thousands upon thousands of golfers return to Santee year after year. It is hard to find a better value destination in America that will provide you with the quality of golf and lodging at the rates they offer. There are three championship golf courses within a mile of the Inn. Another four courses are less than 25 miles and a total of 14 are available within an hour’s drive. The Clark name has become synonymous with fine dining, comfortable accommodation options and customized golf vacations since 1946.

Amenities include on site message therapy for the weary traveler or golfer, an esthetician for a little personal pampering, a fully equipped fitness center, an outdoor swimming pool, the Whimsey Gift Shop, hospitality rooms for large groups, 6 Tesla supercharger stalls, an English-style Pub and the best dining in Santee.

Santee is one of the most favored viewing areas for the Eclipse in the eastern U.S.!
