Florida Started 2018 With Record High Quarter for Tourism

SunshineStateNews.com quotes Florida Governor (and fellow Navy Veteran) Rick Scott as saying, “I am proud to announce that Florida set an all-time record by welcoming over 33 million visitors to our state during the first quarter of 2018,” Scott said on Tuesday. “This historic tourism number represents a 7.4 percent increase over last year and demonstrates the momentum that our state has built. Since December 2010, Florida has created more than 1.5 million jobs, and a large part of this growth is because of the incredible success of our state’s tourism industry. I appreciate the team at Visit Florida and their help making these historic numbers possible.”

As a resident of Florida and as a cruise travel agent, I applaud Gov. Scott for his leadership on increasing tourism here in Florida.
