Visit Florida, the tourism agency of Florida assessed a record 37.9 million tourists in the state throughout the first section of this year, increasing from a previous single-quarter high of 35.528 million during the initial three months of last year.

Q1 estimations exhibit that 2023 is on target to endure Florida’s exceptional presentation in greeting visitors, said Dana Young, the President and CEO of Visit Florida. Tourists from other states carry on driving tourism progression, registering in excess of 91 percent of the first-quarter figures.

financial year, which is an upsurge of $30 million from the current year. The state expenditure strategy (SB
2500) expects provision to Gov. Ron DeSantis.
