Are you one of over 126 million people planning a Florida vacation this year?
In 2007 there were just under 85 million tourists to Florida, around 85% of them were from the US with the remainder mainly from Canada, Germany and the UK.
This figure dropped a bit in 2008 and 2009 but Florida still remained a top holiday destination and by 2010 that number had climbed back to 82.3 million. In 2011, around 87.3 million visitors came to Florida, a new record and then in 2012 it jumped to 91.4 million. Also in 2012 Brazilians overtook the visitors from the UK to become the second most popular foreign holidaymaker nation visiting Florida.
By 2013 the total number of visitors to Florida had hit 94.7 million, and in 2014 it reached 97.3 million, well on the way to 100 million. 2015 saw the total visitor numbers break the 100 million barrier with nearly 105 million and in 2018 it was 126.1 million.
Figures for 2020 will be considerably lower as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic which forced all theme parks to close for a period of time.
