US Travelers Seek Celebrity Destinations in Canada

    VANCOUVER, June 1 /CNW/ - As The Bachelorette's Jillian Harris continues
to look for her best friend, soul mate and future husband on ABC's hit reality
TV series from Warner Horizon Television, Canadian tourism-based businesses
have also found important new relationships with U.S. visitors. Camera crews
followed the interior designer from Vancouver on her hometown dates showcasing
some of the area's finest restaurants, hotels, wineries and tourist
    In an upcoming episode, Harris and a group of eligible bachelors indulge
in a sunset cruise on a 115-foot yacht around Coal Harbour. Exposure Travel,
the luxury travel and adventure company which facilitated the tour, expects
the publicity will help jumpstart an already busy season with U.S. tourists.
    "We definitely expect to see a surge in business, particularly from the
U.S.," said Cory Matheson, co-founder of Exposure Travel. "When people see
what stunning backdrops and natural landscapes exist just north of the border,
how can they help but want to take advantage of it? Celebrities enjoy coming
here because of the privacy and because we offer some of the world's most
ethereal vacation spots."
    With the economy deterring many U.S. travelers from flying overseas in
recent months, Matheson said Canada has become a popular tourist destination.
He expects the interest from south of the border to continue into summer as
tourists seek out luxury and adventure travel destinations closer to home.
    "Canada's rugged West Coast creates an opportunity for customized
adventures and experiences you can't find anywhere else," said Nick Gudewill,
co-founder of Exposure Travel. "Much like the Bachelorette and other
celebrities, couples and vacationers are looking for experiences that will
create lasting memories and there's no better place to do that than right
