And the Winner is... Most Visited U.S. Destination in 2013

It’s the Big Apple vs. the Sunshine State. For the first time, Orlando sits at the top of the list for the “Most Visited U.S. City”, edging out New York City. Both cities welcomed record numbers of visitors in 2013, with Orlando at 59 million visitors and New York City at slightly over 54 million. Why the change of heart? Has Disney World become more popular than Rockefeller Center? While New York City draws more international visitors, Orlando is a magnet for repeat visitors. Amusement parks strategically update their attractions (think Harry Potter World at Universal Orlando), giving visitors a reason to return every few years. And don’t forget the weather: the sun shines almost year-round in Orlando. Especially at this time of year, when the spring bulbs can’t decide if it’s warm enough to bloom or if they should stay hidden until the danger of the last frost has passed, a dose of sunshine sounds mighty tempting. Spring break brings visions of bathing suits and swimming pools. Florida beckons.
