Another year, another tourism record shattered across Florida.

More than 116 million people came to the Sunshine State last year, even though the state lost nearly two million visitors because of Hurricane Irma.

Elliott Falcione, the Executive Director for the Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, told ABC-7 that areas across the state felt the impact of lost tourism because of Irma- even in places where the storm left minimal damage.

Despite the $1.5B loss caused by Hurricane Irma, 3.6% more visitors came to the state last year compared to 2016.
