It’s been a couple of years since many of us have travelled abroad during the wintertime, but it looks like this might finally be our year. Airbnb has released its annual report of top cities Canadians are visiting this winter, and it looks like most people are heading south.

Airbnb has released two lists of top-trending destinations by search in Canada this winter that show where people are most eager to visit this season, within our borders and abroad.

As for trending international destinations on Airbnb, most of them are actually in the US. In fact, Toronto is among the top five cities that visited the US in 2022.

This winter season, the top five most-booked Airbnb categories among Canadians include:

  1. Amazing Pools
  2. Tropical
  3. Beach
  4. National parks
  5. Beachfront

That’s based on bookings from the new “categories” feature on Airbnb, which lets you search for and book incredible stays around the world based on specific criteria.

If all this talk about getaways has you dreaming of the beach, you can also find some seriously budget-friendly all-inclusive vacations from Canada right now.

It looks like we’re in for quite a doozy of a winter in Canada this year. All the more reason to follow in the footsteps of your fellow Canadians and book a beach home down south!
