Tourism in Florida Hitting All-Time High
8 Sep, 2015
Tourism officials say Florida has set a new record with 54.1 million visitors in the first half of 2015 — the highest number in any six-month period in the state's history.
Gov. Rick Scott announced Wednesday at the Miami International Airport that preliminary figures for the first half of 2015 show 45.7 million domestic visitors, 5.5 million overseas visitors and 2.9 million Canadians have come to the Sunshine State. That represents increases of 6.7 per cent, 1.7 per cent and 1.1 per cent respectively.
