Officials Expect an Influx of Canadian Visitors in Florida

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. (AP) _ Broward County tourism officials are
expecting an influx of Canadian visitors this snowbird season due
to their newly-strengthened currency.

Nicki Grossman heads the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and
Visitors Bureau. She's expecting record numbers of Canadians this
year.

That's because the U.S. dollar is at its weakest level against
the Canadian dollar in more than 50 years.

Canadians flock to Pembroke Park, Hollywood, Hallandale Beach,
Dania Beach, Tamarac and Fort Lauderdale. Grossman says 450,000
Canadian visitors are expected in Broward County in the next six
weeks.
