I live in San Francisco so naturally most of us travel to LA as a first road-trip or family vacation than Vegas would probably come second.

Acajack is right to break into seasons.

In summer people do trips closer to home such as The Okanagan Valley, Vancouver Island or one of the Gulf Islands. Driving holidays tend to head south to California. SF is only a 19 hour drive away. Many other great spots within the province as well, like the Sunshine Coast and the Kootenays.

Europe. People I know at my age tend to go anytime throughout the year.

Winter.

My guess is Mexico is probably the number one place, at least with the people I know. Hawaii is also very popular, as is Cuba, Costa Rica. Some may fly to California, mainly Palm Springs where many have bought places.

It seems that people in Quebec travel to these places in order to escape the cold temperatures...

Ummm... yes of course.


I've never done that that often but yes, it's a very common travel choice in the winter here.

Quite lame there are tons of North American USA losers not traveling nearly around the practical dreamy frequency occurrence interval to allow another Worldly status of honor. Even when that is usually nobody’s fault. Genuine sympathy for them. Trust me, only the top 30% of USA citizens really travel.

Geography is a solid advantage when entering mainland Europe, or even the Middle East, Mainland Asia. Able to get further with less cash.

On the contrary, I want to now focus on Constanta Romania. Where I have my only International residential stay outside of NYC/seattle Americas. Even when people are poor, they are going to Italy, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece quite easily. For the wealthier ones, why not Thailand, China, Azerbaijan, South Korea? Oh no, I hope deep down these ethnic Romanians are not racist. Maybe just ignorant when appreciating from far away?

Maybe it sounds me weird because here in Brazil the winter is never very cold, we have at most drizzle, clouds and wind. Yesterday was the second coldest afternoon in SP of 2017, and the maximum reached 13°C. Thus, people in winter here go to places where the winter is more rigorous, in order to see frost, to drink wine and to eat chocolate.

But, as canadians experience real winters, much below the freezing point... it makes sense that you want to flee out of this. The lowest temperature which I experienced was -16°C, in Switzerland. This is so cold that we cannot even feel the touch in the skin.
