Miami Is The Second Most Popular Destination For International Visitors (And Growing Fast)

Miami is among the fastest growing destinations in the U.S. for overseas visitors, as tourists continue to flock to the city.

In 2014, international visits to Miami increased 21%, setting a new record. Overall, Miami had the second most visitors from overseas in the U.S., behind only New York City.

For the year, New York remained firmly in first place, but Miami is growing much faster. The data showed that visitors to New York only increased by 2% for the year.

The statistics were released this month by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Visitors from Mexico and Canada are excluded.
