Miami Is The Second Most Visited City In The Americas, Study Says

Miami ranks as the second most visited city in all of the Americas, according to a newly released study.

Euromonitor’s 2017 Top 100 City Destinations Ranking placed Miami second, behind only New York. Worldwide, Miami ranked 20th.

The study counts international arrivals who spend 24 hours or more in a city. Domestic tourists are not included.

Based on current data, Miami is projected to have 8.076 million arrivals for 2017, which is a 3.1% increase over 2016.

Orlando also ranked well in the study, placing 5th in the Americas with 5.269 million visitors.

Not only that but it’s a horrible chart. Is this international tourist stays or total visitors? Where is Mexico City on the chart? Punta Cana does not have more visitors than Mexico City.

This makes no sense. You still need to visit Miami in order to go on your cruise. So you count as a visitor.

Ok geniuses, first of all the article says that the study only counted International visitors that spent at least one night at a Miami hotel. So a person flies into Miami because he/she is taking a cruise that departs from here. They spend ONE night in a Miami area Hotel and then go on the cruise. That person would only be counted once as a visitor in this study because it met that criteria but not on an arriving cruise ship because the person was already accounted for as a visitor in this trip.

Even so, if just a day a tourist will take taxi’s, Uber, visit Joe’s Stone Crabs, walk around downtown, or the beach, etc..

Or arrive at night and board the ship the next morning. Still spent the night but spent NOTHING in Miami besides the hotel. This probably represents the majority of cruise passengers.

And most of them either hop on and off a cruise ship or come here from South America just to spend two days at Dolphin Mall….

Too bad there’s absolutely nothing to do here other than shop assuming you have the money, go to the beach, and get wasted on overpriced piss booze. No pride in history and culture, and no quality transit to move around. At least in Ocala you’re close to Orlando and it has some respected old architecture.

Eight million Brazilians buying Chinese counterfeit electronics at Sawgrass Mills isn’t close to “most people in the world.”

Sorry but are you saying that the Miami Beach Art Deco Historic Neighborhood is not respected Old architecture?
That the Freedom tower, The Biltmore,Viscaya and the Bacardi building are not respected old architecture?
Their is a lot more to do in Miami then Drinking, Beaches and Shopping if you have the interest.

You’re cherry picking. Nobody goes to Miami to see the Bacardi Building. Vizcaya is nice, but Freedom Tower is in an awful state thanks to the idiot college that owns it. Compared the way old world charm meets modernity in cities like NYC, Boston, and Philadelphia, and Miami can’t hold up a candle at all. At least Los Angeles has more to do, despite its void in culture.

Who cares about old buildings? Big deal they’re old and outdated, like Grandma. I’ll take the beach life any day over asbestos and lead paint love.
