Tourism is the state’s largest industry adding over $100 billion annually to Florida’s economy. The beaches, amusement parks, and other unique tourist attractions make Florida one of the most visited states in America.
Each year family vacationers flock to Orlando, sunseekers head to the coastal cities Miami, and Fort Lauderdale. While others seek the white-sand beaches of the Florida Panhandle. The Florida Keys and Key West seem like tropical islands, a world away from the mainland.
Some of the top tourist attractions include Disney World, of course, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens in Tampa, the Everglades National Park, Kennedy Space Center, and the Daytona 500 International Speedway. Thousands flock to the state each year for the Grapefruit League, MLB’s spring training, in cities such as Lake Buena Vista (Atlanta Braves), and Sarasota (Baltimore Orioles). They also head to cities like Jupiter (St. Louis Cardinals), Tampa (New York Yankees), and West Palm Beach – The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, (home to the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals).
