Kiss the big cities goodbye and indulge in some local flavour this holiday season
TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - This year, unless you're a snowbird, you're likely planning to spend the holiday season embracing the cold weather like a true Canuck. But if you'd like to get out of your hometown and experience the festivities elsewhere, consider taking a break from what's tried and true. The travel experts at Hotels.com® want you to explore Canada this winter and have put together a list of under the radar cities perfect for travellers looking to celebrate the season.
"Yes, Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver are popular high-profile destinations, but there are fun holiday celebrations all across the country," says Taylor L. Cole, APR, travel expert at Hotels.com. "You'd be surprised at how much is going on and what you can discover if you're open to exploring some of the smaller cities."
The end of the year is as great a time as any to try something new. Just grab your mobile, download the Hotels.com app, and you can start searching for the perfect place and hotel deal, regardless of where you are. Plus you can also pay it forward this season by sharing your favourite festive winter spots with other travellers by tweeting to @hotelsdotcomca using the hashtag #festiveCA.
