Staycation

Did you know Canada.. it looks like many people are still enjoying "staycations" and travelling closer to home as Statistics Canada Reports Domestic tourism spending by Canadians was up 0.4% at the end of last year - a continuing trend.

Statistics Canada notes that higher spending on accommodation, food and beverage services and, most notably, non-tourism commodities such as groceries, souvenirs and clothing contributed to the overall increase in tourism outlays at home.

In my family last year we went to a cottage in Muskoka for vacation and this year we plan on doing a lot of day trips to local attractions and try our hand at camping - again staying pretty close to home.

What are your vacation plans this year?
