Resorts in Ontario like Port Cunnington Lodge & Resort in Muskoka expect an outstanding tourist season this year due to increase in visitors from the U.S. Culture and values between the U.S. and Canada are also quote similar and are each other’s closest trading partners and allies. Where would Americans prefer to travel this year? US travel to Mexico, Europe, and Asia is expected to be down this year. Americans visiting Canada this year hold high chance and prospects. Canada has much to offer for attracting tourists.
Ontario resorts and lodges have much to offer and much to benefit welcoming US visitors to cottage country. There are great attractions and resort accommodation to suit any lifestyle and pocket. Muskoka, Ontario is very likely to reap the rewards of American tourism this upcoming summer season.
The influx of U.S. tourism is a welcome break for Canada. To quote Kim Loader Innkeeper of Port Cunnington Lodge and Resort, “Traditionally US tourist business to Ontario resorts has been about 5%. Most US tourism in Ontario tends to land in Toronto as a result of conferences and tourist shopping. This year more than ever we expect US vacationers to venture further afield. There are not many comfortable vacation destination options for American tourists in far-flung places around the world.
There is much political and economic strife around the world, and many countries do not exactly welcome Americans with open arms. In Ontario, we do welcome American tourists with open arms! Canada is a trusted partner and Muskoka is a trusted brand. Fuel prices for vehicle travel are reasonable right now. Many Americans finally have job stability and some expendable cash. Our extremely favorable currency rate seals the deal. We are expecting US visitor numbers to double to around 10% this coming summer season. We had a good year last year, and we are anticipating an even better year in 2017.”
