Although the Canadian Dollar has weakened, Canadians haven’t stopped travelling to the US. In fact, the number of Canadians who have booked vacations to Las Vegas is more than last year.
Hotels.com has made an attempt to find out why Canadians are interested in Sin City. Taylor L. Cole, an APR travel expert for Hotels.com, said: “Historically hotel properties in Las Vegas have been more affordable than many of the popular US cities like New York. With the Canadian dollar at the lowest it’s been in many years, travelers are looking for destinations that offer great value and Las Vegas is a city where the hotels themselves are a big attraction.”
The number of Canadians from Edmonton and Winnipeg doing Google searches for March break vacations has increased by 46% when compared to last year. In case of the Vancouver and Calgary, the increase has been by 25% and 22%, respectively.
Canadians are attracted to Las Vegas because the Sin City has been very hospitable to well-known Canadian citizens. The Canadian Shania Twain, Celine Dion, and Cirque du Soleil helped Las Vegas maintain its reputation as the world leader in entertainment. Residents of Canada are known for their loyalty to talented people from Canada and do not mind travelling all the way to Las Vegas and playing for real money just to cheer fellow Canadians.
It also cannot be forgotten that Las Vegas is the world’s hottest gambling and entertainment hotspot, with something to offer not only gamblers, but also to people with other interests. Families love travelling to Las Vegas for its indoor theme parks, aquariums, candy shops, and much more. Couples also love Las Vegas as it offers fine dining, night shows, and exciting tours.
