More Tourists Visited Miami In 2017 Than Ever Before | The Next Miami

February 3, 2018

isitors continue flocking to Miami in record numbers last year.

According to Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, the county welcomed 15.8 million overnight visitors in 2017 who spent $25.9 billion. Both were all-time highs, the mayor said in his State of the County address.

The strong numbers came despite the Miami Beach Convention Center being mostly closed for renovations. Other challenges last year included a strong dollar, hurricane, and zika scare.

PortMiami also had more cruise passengers in 2017 than any port in the world has ever seen, with 5.3 million passengers for the year.

Many of the new visitors likely came through FLL, which saw double digit growth. Traffic at MIA was down 1%.
