Trumbull County will be a hot spot for tourism as people travel there to witness the total solar eclipse in six days.

Businesses in the county are gearing up for a big surge in foot traffic and they are expecting it to come with a huge economic boost.

As we count down to the days to witness this rare phenomenon, businesses in Trumbull County are counting up the dollar signs.

"Even if [people are] just passing through and going to another location, if [every] person spent between $10-$20, you are looking at an economic impact of $500,00 to $1 million," Samantha Ensminger marketing manager of Trumbull County Tourism Bureau said. 

It is a once-in-a-generation opportunity that will last for roughly three minutes. Ensminger said an influx of visitors are expected to flock to the area.

"We have heard numbers like 50,000, 100,000 to 1,000 people traveling through this county. It is [...] difficult to predict how much traffic we're actually going to see through the area, but regardless of that we're going to see traffic and we're going to see an economic impact because of that traffic." Ensminger told 21 News Leslie Huff 

The majority of hotel rooms in the county have been reserved for the event.

"You are going to see a lot people coming in through the weekend, staying Sunday night, and then leave [...] Monday night," Ensminger said. 

With the eclipse drawing near, businesses along its path are gearing up for a surge in foot traffic. The owner of Mocha House in Warren says their business could generate a few thousand dollars from tourists this weekend.

"There's been a lot of excitement. We have shirts, we have special drinks that are layered to look like eclipses. I think that all helps with the economy." Maria Morris, The Mocha House co-owner said.
