Canadian Tourism
(2007-07-16)
(wgvu) - OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine (AP) - This summer, the soaring
Canadian dollar makes it more affordable for Canadians to vacation
in the United States.
That's enticing more people to get into their cars despite the
hassle of long waits at border crossings.
Last summer, Canadian tourists probably thought it couldn't get
any better after the loonie reached a 28-year high against the
greenback. That meant they could trade in their loonies for 90 U.S.
cents.
Since then, the Canadian dollar has grown even stronger. Today,
the loonie and greenback are nearly equal -- with a loonie being
worth about 95 cents.
New York is the most popular destination for Canadian visitors,
followed by Florida, Washington, Michigan, California, Nevada and
Maine.
