WTG Arizona. I won't be visiting CA anytime soon either. Will definitely make a detour summer trip to the beautiful state of Arizona in July.

FOXNews.com - San Diego Faces Own Medicine as Arizona Residents Cancel Travel Following Boycott of State
"Arizona tourists are biting back against San Diego for its city council's decision to boycott the Grand Canyon State over its immigration law signed by Gov. Jan Brewer last month.

Would-be tourists have notified the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau and some hotels that they are canceling their scheduled travel to the coastal vacation destination, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

According to the newspaper, the convention bureau has received about 25-30 emails from Arizona residents, with some saying they are canceling their reservations and taking their money elsewhere."


Arizonians Uniting to Counter-Boycott California Arizona Immigration | Daily Political
"What most liberals and democrats do not know, is that Arizona currently provides 25% of our electricity. Yes the evil Conservative Arizona state helps her Liberal sister who is in dire need of electricity. What did we decide to do? we decided to stab them in the back without thinking of the consequences."

Bankrupt California continues to bite itself in the ass, lol. Love that LA is losing its movie business and putting hundreds of these anti-US libfreaks out of work.

Movie Talk: Should We Now Call Him 'Captain England'?
"The loss of production business from "Captain America: The First Avenger" is another blow to the city of Los Angeles, which has seen its share of big-budget films flee to escape the heavy tax burden its state levees on films. California offers tax credits to smaller films but, considering "Captain America's" budget is $140 million, it didn't qualify for a break. London offers tax credits up to 25 percent. When faced with the current economic climate, it's hard to argue with those numbers -patriotic or not.

Also ironic: California's taxes have been a boon to the British Columbian city of Vancouver, which in recent years has seen a boom of what would've otherwise been big Hollywood business (films such as the "Twilight Saga" have found a production home north of the border)."

25-30 single cancelations compared to 30 conventions and a nationwide boycott...right.

You really think EVERY person who was planning to cancel their trip to San Diego is going to send an email? Get a clue!

Not everyone - but SD does rely very heavily on "zonies" to fill their hotels in the summer

It's probably the most advertised "heat escape" locally - AZ residents are the 2nd most prolific visitors to SD at over 2M visitors a year ..... only CA residents visit SD with greater frequency

San Diego is a very popular destination for Arizonans, especially around Memorial Day. Now, did you wish to talk about something you actually know about?

That's for being polite.
Thanks F Laker and AZLiam for the info. I learned something today.

We will actually have to test this out on Memorial weekend and see how much it will hurt SD economically. I still stand by my statement. AZ will have a greater loss than SD. You can't compare a state to a city. Specially when a boycott is directed at an entire state.

Wow, 25 to 30 people have decided not to vacation in San Diego! Out of the millions who visit San Diego, I don't think the city will suffer from a sliver of Arizona's population. They must be yawning in San Diego!
