Where do you go during your holidays?

As we expand this website we'll add articles and reviews of holiday destinations. We start by covering local attractions (by local we mean Canadian). Check out a list of Canadian tourist areas and what they have to offer for Canadians as well as foreign tourists.

Popular vacation days

Various surveys have been created to find out which holidays are the most popular ones. The results (we've looked at three different survey results) aren't surprising: Christmas is the most popular, over 40% of all Canadians indicated that they like Christmas the most and take longer vacations around the end of the year. Next is Canada Day at 14% - more than half of all employees prefer to plan for a long weekend and take time off if July 1st is not a Monday or Friday. The third on the list is halloween at 7% but unlike Canada Day, if halloween doens't make a long weekend people don't tend to take an extra day off - by this time of the year everyone must be saving their days for the Chirstmas holidays.
