Hotwire Canadian travellers' top holiday destination

California-based discount travel site said it has compiled the top ten destinations where Canadians are vacationing this holiday season.

According to the site, Canadian travellers are packing up and headed for the US this year, with destinations like Orlando, New York City and Las Vegas overtaking the previous popularity of domestic getaways.

The US has been a good deal for Canadians all year as many popular leisure destinations have dropped prices, attracting international travellers.

Still, the mainstay Canadian cities of Toronto, Vancouver, Montrealand Ottawa are still largely sought-after, and offer great deals to make the season even brighter.

The Florida city of Orlando tops the list as the most popular holiday destination for Canadians, and New York City comes in second.

Toronto drops down two spots to third, but continues to be the only Canadian destination in the top three for the second year in a row. Placing fourth on the list is Las Vegas (second last year) and coming in fifth is Vancouver (seventh last year), which is offering an average nightly rate of 92 dollars – the third-best deal on the list.

Sixth on the list is Montreal, which has fallen one spot from last year, followed by Miami and San Francisco, which have both risen up a spot since 2012. Rounding out the most popular holiday destinations are two newcomers–Ottawa, with its sub-100 dollar average rate, and the warm California city of Los Angeles.

Miami, San Francisco, Ottawa and Los Angeles round out the list.
