Hotwire.com has unveiled its 10 most popular domestic destinations for Canadian travellers over the Family Day Weekend for 2015.
Canadian mainstays, including Toronto and Montreal, remain the most sought-after to visit, but there are still deals to be found on Hotwire. All top 10 cities are experiencing hotel pricing averages around $100 a night, helping families enjoy the convenience of a quick, nearby vacation without breaking the bank.
“This Family Day weekend, instead of going far and wide for a great deal, skip the stress of a long drive or plane ride and plan on having a staycation near home with your family,” says Henrik Kjellberg, president of the Hotwire Group. “With comparatively low prices all over the country during the winter season, this three-day weekend is a great time to explore your surroundings and see what gems are hiding in your own neighbourhood, all for great prices for a family on any budget.”
Toronto comes in as the most popular destination for Family Day weekend, with a variety of family friendly activities. Meanwhile, Montreal places second this year with Ottawa a close third. Rounding out the top five are Niagara Falls and Halifax, both of which are frequently visited destinations during Canadian holidays.
