Americans are staying for longer durations in the borders of Windsor

AmericansAlthough the number of visitors decreased by 22,000 overall in Windsor area in comparison to the last year, those who stayed for more than one or more nights augmented by more than 2,500.

In the first four months of 2017, approximately 315,000 Americans came to Windsor. The month of April witnessed a razor-sharp drop in the number of overnight guests, with almost 26,500 staying as a minimum of one night as compared to 67,000 in the initial three months of this year.

According to Statistics Canada, on a national scale, U.S. tourism grew by only 0.1 percent during the first four months of 2017. This may have resulted because American tourism bounced back on a powerful note in early 2016 following the rush of the U.S. dollar, as expressed by Peter Kalhok, head of the agency’s division that looks at tourism and education statistics.

To quote Peter Kalhok, “U.S. travel has been fairly flat for the first four months of this year, but it’s being compared to 2016, which was a very strong year. There was a big jump over 2015.”

To quote Matt Marchand, president of the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce, “I don’t think we’ll get back to the salad days of the late ’90s, but there’s been an improvement since 2015. There’s been a general economic improvement in the American Midwest the last five years. People are getting used to passports at the border. The American dollar also stretches farther on this side of the border.”
