This time of year, this page gets about 250 to 300 visits a day. It's a solid page, but usually get average traffic compared to others on my site. Since this article ran though, traffic has increased quite a bit.
On Thursday, this page received 3,500 visits. Yesterday, it received almost 6,000 visits. Today this page is at about 3,500 visits already (it's only noon here). These visits are all from Google with a small handful from the original CNN Travel article.
Now, this page is about 5 years old. I update it each year as it's for a large upcoming event. The page has a lot of inbound links, but has never received this many visits this far out from the event.
It's a fun example of how great content can lead to high quality links which eventually turn into traffic.
