Orlando is the most visited city in the United States

Only one United States tourist destination can reign supreme as the most visited city in the United States. The 2013 numbers are in, and Orlando is the clear winner with 59 million visitors. We even beat New York City, which didn’t do too shabby with 54.3 million visitors last year.

Florida as a whole had a record-breaking 2013, welcoming nearly 95 million tourists to the Sunshine State. According to Gov. Rick Scott, “Every 85 visitors to Florida equals one job in our state – and it is clear that more visitors to the Sunshine State means more jobs for Florida families.” One very low-paying service-industry job, we’re guessing, but hey, it’s something.
