Gov. DeSantis Announces Florida’s All-Time Record First Quarter 

Governor Ron DeSantis announced on May 15 that Florida broke an all-time record for visitation during the first quarter of 2019 with 35.7 million people visiting the Sunshine State from January to March. This is a 5.8% increase from the first quarter of 2018.

“An all-time record quarter of visitation is exciting news for the entire state,” says Governor DeSantis. “As we work to diversify Florida’s economy, it is critical that we keep visitation to Florida, and the revenue it generates, healthy and robust. VISIT FLORIDA plays an important role in this goal, and we will continue to support their work on behalf of Florida and our hardworking taxpayers.”
