Strong Florida tourism numbers continue in Q3 2014

Florida tourism numbers continue to climb, with Visit Florida's preliminary estimates showing 23.7 million visitors travelled to the Sunshine State in the third quarter of 2014 (July-September), an increase of 3.5 per cent over the same period in 2013.

The numbers represent the largest third quarter for visitation Florida has ever experienced, exceeding the previous high of 22.9 million in Q3 2013, said Visit Florida in a press release.

Through the first three quarters of 2014, Visit Florida estimates that it has welcomed 73.9 million visitors – an increase of 2.5 per cent over the same period last year. Visitor spending in Florida for January-August 2014 was US$55.6 billion, representing a year-over-year increase of 7.3 per cent from the same period in 2013.

For quarter three, Visit Florida estimates that 2.9 million overseas visitors and 526,000 Canadians came to Florida, both of which are record Q3 highs and represent 2.2 per cent and 1.8 per cent increases over Q3 2013 respectively.
