Airbnb Sees Listings Surge From Solar Eclipse Spectacle

In the past month, Airbnb Inc. listings and bookings have surged as astronomy enthusiasts scramble to find accommodations along the “path of totality,” the 70-mile strip projected to go dark this Monday. Over 29,000 homes, single rooms, plots of grass and recreational vehicles along the eclipse’s trajectory are registered for rent on Airbnb. More than 50,000 people are booked to stay in rentals over the weekend, compared with about 11,000 last week.
