As Orlando is the home to Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld it is easy to see why it’s a top travel destination. According to Travel + Leisure Magazine, the City Beautiful is the top U.S. travel destination for family vacations. In 2014 “”America’s Favorite Cities” surveyed and tallied more than 50,000 votes, ranking 38 U.S. cities in dozens of categories, from culture to quality of life. Orlando was No. 1 on the list once, as the top city for a family vacation.
Just in Orlando the statistic of travelers for 2014 was 63 million, according to Visit Orlando. Compared to the 97 million for the entire State. It is the fourth year in a row that the state has had a record number of tourists come to the state. Most of the visitors were from the United States, but millions also came from overseas and from Canada Florida’s natural beauty, pristine beaches and exciting attractions continue to bring countless visitors to our state and provide valuable jobs for our families. State officials told a legislative committee last year that Florida is growing at the expense of our competition as Americans are shifting away from visiting other places to come to Florida.
