Visit Florida recently revealed that nearly 30.6 million domestic visitors came to the US state from April through June of this year. This is a 6% increase over the same time in 2019. Moreover, it is a 216% jump from the same time last year during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic closures.

As per new data released on Thursday, the number of US tourists who came to Florida in the second quarter of this year has returned to pre-pandemic levels, though the international market is still lagging.

Overall, Florida had 31.4 million visitors in the second quarter of this year. This is an increase of 220% from the same period a year earlier. Florida’s international market has not yet recovered to pre-pandemic levels due to restrictions on entering the US. Florida welcomed only 1.1 million visitors from overseas and Canada in the second quarter of this year. In 2019 the state welcomed nearly 3.5 million visitors in the second quarter of 2019.

During the spring of 2020, major theme parks and hotels around the state of Florida either shut down or had limited operations due to the pandemic. The theme parks reopened more than a year ago but with mask requirements, attendance limitations and social distancing. Earlier this year, Florida eased many such restrictions.
