Many Canadians are opting to travel and vacation locally recently. There are several reasons for this trend in domestic travel. One of the most prevalent is the falling value of the Canadian dollar. Currently, one Canadian Dollar is equivalent to 1.38 U.S. dollars, which means traveling to the United States is more costly than ever before. This motivates many Canadians, of all ages, to stay local and reinvest in their own economy. Also, remaining local means their dollar will go further than in would with a U.S. vacation.
