Did you know Canada.. it was interesting to read from Statistics Canada that Canadian residents took 4.8 million trips abroad in February, up 0.8% compared with January. Canadian travel to overseas countries increased 0.3% to 734,000 trips in February. Probably to get away from our crazy winter. ;-)
Canadians took 4.0 million trips to the United States in February and overnight travel rose 2.2% to 1.7 million. Canadians also took 2.3 million same-day car trips to the United States in February, almost the same amount as in January.
I'm surprised that same-day car trips to the States did not increase considering our dollar is so strong. But we also had some pretty awful weather in January and February. We're planning on a day trip to the states for lunch and some shopping in the next month or so - are you planning a trip across the border any time soon?
