National Travel & Tourism Week

May 2nd, 2016 9:26 AM by Brent Ferry

It's National Travel & Tourism Week May 1 - May 7, 2016. And it may come as no surprise that travel is a primary industry in Florida specifically the Orlando and Kissimmee area which welcomes over 60 million visitors each year and is home to 7 of the top 10 U.S. theme park leaders including the most visited theme park in the world.

According to the U.S. Travel Association, domestic and international travelers to Florida spent $85.3 billion in 2014 and generated $12.3 billion to federal, state and local governments. The 845,100 jobs created by travelers to Florida in 2014 represent 12.6% of the state’s total private industry employment.

Travel also greatly benefits our relationships, families and children.

Did you know that kids who travel with their families are more likely to attend college, and earn more as adults? And it’s good for our well-being—numerous research studies have confirmed the positive health effects of travel and time off, from reducing the risk of heart disease to decreasing depression. So come see us here in Florida for some fun in the sun!
