Some 2017 events are really worth the drive

Most of us live in places where it's not hard to find a special summer event as the Pacific Northwest celebrates our best weather of the year in a variety of different ways. It's easy and convenient -- you just drive to these events for the day and home again.

But there are some events that are really worth the extra effort of hitting the road and finding overnight lodgings. These events will bring extra-special memories and give you a chance to get out and explore our region of the country.

Here are five suggestions for just those kinds of events -- start making those hotel reservations now!

The 2017 Solar Eclipse actually was planned by Mother Nature a long, long time ago -- it's a rare solar eclipse that will happen on August 21, 2017.

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, the best place for you to see the eclipse will be in Oregon. Certain parts of Oregon will experience the full effects which include the sun being completely blocked out by the moon for a few minutes. There will in fact be a 70-mile wide shadow across parts of the entire country. If you stand anywhere under that shadow, you'll see that everything goes pitch black. If you are under clear skies, you will see a hole in the sky. The event's duration will last a minute or two, perhaps more with the longest duration being along the center line of that 70-mile-wide path. The longest duration will be two minutes, 41 seconds.

With just about any binoculars you'll be able to see the Sun's corona and the plasma coming from the sun's surface. It's an amazing experience and, whenever a total eclipse occurs, hotel rooms sell out.

Since the event travels west to east, the eclipse will start on the coast where prime summer vacation destinations like Depoe Bay, Newport and Lincoln City will be near the center of the eclipse path. Along the I-5 corridor, the eclipse will pass over such popular destinations as Salem, Albany and Corvallis.
