Orlando to Remain the Hottest US Tourist Spot in 2011

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

LONDON, June 29, 2011 - says a record numbers of travellers
chose Orlando, Florida as their holiday destination in 2010; they
expect this trend to continue in 2011.

Orlando has been a popular destination for tourists from all
over the world for many years, but it saw a record number of
visitors in 2010. Last year Orlando welcomed over 51 million
visitors and according to href="">, a
leading online holiday specialist, these figures are set to be
matched by 2011’s visitor numbers.

Alex Saint, CEO of says, “Florida has always
been a favourite destination for’s customers, and
Orlando, home of Disneyworld, Universal Studios and countless
waterparks, has proven to be a particular attraction to the many
families that use our services. We’re already seeing a huge
interest in href="">Orlando
flights and holidays and we expect this to continue as we
approach the high season.”

According to figures released by Visit Orlando, over 51.5
million travellers holidayed in Orlando in 2010 compared with the
46.6 million that visited in 2009, which amounts to a 10.5 per cent
total increase in visitor numbers. The city has traditionally been
one of the most visited holiday destinations in the USA and last
year it became the first city in the country to ever hit the 50
million-plus visitors mark. Over 3.6 million of these came from
abroad according to the href="">Visit Orlando report - a
figure that is set to increase as more premium carriers begin
offering cheap flight deals to their customers.

Saint adds, “Florida was one of the original destinations of
choice when package holidays initially became popular in the 1960s
and the state’s willingness to invest in improving their
attractions, accommodation and amenities has meant that href="">Florida
holidays have remained consistently popular. Orlando in
particular is seen by many as the destination of a lifetime, but in
the past the cost of flights meant families could only afford to
visit once. In 2011, flights to Orlando are cheaper than ever
before and this means that travellers are able to come to the
Sunshine State time and time again.”
