Florida posts another record quarter for tourist arrivals
Florida notched another record quarter for tourism during the first three months of the year.
The state’s tourism-marketing agency Visit Florida posted 35.9 million tourist arrivals between January and March. It is slightly up on the first quarter of 2019, before the pandemic.
It has now posted three consecutive quarters with arrival numbers above the same periods in 2019.
Still, the number of overseas travellers is still way off pre-pandemic levels. Florida attracted only 1.33 million visitors from overseas plus half a million Canadians.
