Philly saw a bump in Airbnb and other short-term bookings for today's solar eclipse, per estimates from rental analytics platform AirDNA.

The caveat: While offerings are booked solid in and around the path of totality, Philly falls outside that path.

By the numbers: 83% of Philly's nearly 4,300 listed short-term rentals were booked yesterday, the day before the eclipse and final night of WrestleMania.

  • Bookings dropped to 43% today and then 30% for April 14, per AirDNA.
