Solar eclipse glasses are available at the Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce located at 202 US Highway 64 West in Cashiers for a two dollar donation per pair. Other local businesses also have solar eclipse glasses available.

Cashiers and cities inside the 70-mile-wide path of the solar eclipse will experience the moon passing in front of the sun causing the sky to turn pitch black, the air to cool, and the stars to come out. This is the first time in 26 years that America has seen a total solar eclipse, and it is one of the few that will sweep the nation from Atlantic to Pacific coasts.

Whiteside Mountain is a hike to put at the top of your list if you are visiting the Cashiers and surrounding area. A two-mile loop trail leading around the rim of the mountain offers stunning views to the south, east and west and boasts abundant wildlife, plants and history. The million-year-old rock cliffs reach 4930 feet and sit along the Eastern Continental Divide. The iconic mountain’s cliffs are known by their markings that look like sheets of ice stretched along the mountain and serve as a local landmark, wildlife habitat and rock climbing enthusiast’s dream.
