Canadian cactus growing in Arizona
Travellers who’d like to visit the southern U.S. this winter but are scared off by the sorry state of the Canadian dollar should consider that 50-plus favorite: Arizona. The sunny state obviously appreciates the patronage of Canadians, and is demonstrating this with “Canadian Cactus Days”.
Travellers can order a free coupon book that provides snowbirds with significant discounts on everything from restaurants to attractions. Call the state’s Toronto office at 416-861-1240.
Arizona definitely has attractions along with discounts. One that is surprisingly often overlooked by Canadians seeking the sun is the good old Grand Canyon, two billion years in the making and host to five million visitors a year.
