The total solar eclipse will cross over Dallas’s skies in less than a month, and The Dallas Express has compiled a list of local happenings to celebrate the rare event.

Get Close with a Lunar Flight

Take a special flight aboard Delta Air Lines or Southwest Airlines on April 8 to experience the eclipse up close and personal. The flights track the path of totality as closely as possible, delivering an unparalleled eclipse viewing experience.

The Great American Eclipse at The Dallas Arboretum

On April 8, The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden will host a viewing celebration with special guests and activities from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Lunar Luxury

Last month, The Dallas Express reported that the Hilton Anatole recently completed a massive $30 million renovation. Guests can bask in the new amenities while watching the rare lunar event.

When you book the 2024 Solar Eclipse Package, you will receive two complimentary viewing glasses and an eclipsed chocolate mousse with a blueberry compote dome. The package is available from April 5 through 8.

Celebrate Downtown

Downtown Dallas is stretching out the event, with eclipse festivities kicking off April 5 and running through April 8. Expect family-friendly activities, live music, and a shared viewing of the total solar eclipse.

The Lunar Light: Discovery

As reported earlier this month, residents and visitors of the City can now enjoy an immersive lunar-themed virtual reality experience created by Daniella Roosa, granddaughter of Stuart Roosa, who landed on the moon with the Apollo 14 mission. What better day to check out this new exhibit than on April 8?
