On Monday, August 21st, the contiguous U.S. will witness its first total solar eclipse since 1979, as the moon momentarily blocks the sun and plunges us into a few minutes of complete darkness—sometime in the morning or early afternoon, depending on your time zone.

Here’s the thing, though: while everyone in the lower 48 states will be able to see at least a partial eclipse, only a swath of the country will be able to see the total eclipse. And since we all know a total eclipse is way cooler than a partial eclipse, we’ve done you the service of finding the eight best Airbnbs to rent from the 20th and 21st, in the most ideal regions to experience this highly Instagram-able natural phenomenon. 

But you better act fast...
