TORONTO, ON — Nov. 12, 2013 — A study released on Monday by FlightNetwork.com found that Tampa is one of the most visited travel destinations for Canadians during the winter.
The city ranked sixth on a list of Canadians’ favorite winter destinations, which was released in an article titled The Top 14 Winter Destinations for Canadians.
It is one of the most accurate, detailed descriptions of Canadian air travel patterns ever revealed by a travel agency. By studying flight statistics from last winter’s bookings, the agency found the 14 most popular winter destinations for Canadians from November to March.
Tampa accounted for 2.12 per cent of all bookings made at the second largest online booking agency in Canada.
The article, which also includes a detailed description of each destination, said “With first-class hotels, distinct heritage, authentic culture, thrilling attractions, delicious cuisine and premier shopping, there is no better place to discover Florida’s riches than Tampa Bay.”
The article also recommended several local businesses, including the Florida Aquarium and Boca Kitchen and Market.
The most popular destination was Fort Lauderdale, accounting for nearly 5 per cent of all international bookings. Not surprisingly Las Vegas and Orlando came in at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, receiving a combined 8 per cent of all bookings to destinations outside of Canada.
Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Tampa Bay followed. Surprisingly, chilly San Francisco ranked No. 7 on the list.
Paris, London, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta were the only cities outside of the United States that made the list.
