'Cities We Love' survey shows the destinations tapping into Canadian
TORONTO, Feb. 5, 2014 /CNW/ - We all love something, whether it's
family, friends, pets, food or, if you're a traveller, a certain city.
In honour of the season of amour, the travel experts at Hotels.com® took a look at Canadians' love affair with cities around the world.
According to the 'Cities We Love' survey, these popular destinations continue to woo us:
City that needs the most love: Toronto
The biggest city in Canada has had a rough year - from antics of its
colourful mayor to the intense ice storms in January which left
thousands of Torontonians without power. The runner up is Albertan
city, Calgary, which also experienced Mother Nature's wrath with
devastating floods last summer.
City to stay in 'til death do us part: Vancouver
If you're going to stay forever, most people say the west coast is the
place. With its laid back lifestyle and mild climate, what's not to
love? Following behind this green-living city are Toronto and Paris.
City that's hardest to break up with: Paris
Ooh la la! Maybe it's the blinding romantic nature of this city that
makes you hold on, but whatever it is, the City of Light kept its grip
on our hearts and was the first choice for Canadians.
City to not introduce to the parents: Las Vegas
With its 24-hour nightlife and 'What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas'
slogan, this city doesn't come off as the most trustworthy companion,
making the destination a clear leader with half of the votes.
City with the most charm: Montreal
When you're looking for a little slice of Europe but don't have the
vacation time, Montreal is the perfect alternative oozing culture,
cuisine and charisma - and who doesn't love the accents? Not
surprisingly, Paris was a close runner up.
