Philly, give yourself a well-deserved fist-bump.
For the sixth-straight year, the city has shattered tourism rates of the previous year, welcoming 41 million visitors in 2015, up from 39 million in 2014, based on newly released statistics from Visit Philly.
That’s translated to an economic boom, too. Visit Philly says tourists generated $10.7 billion in economic impact. That’s $29 million every day.
Since 2010, the city has experienced nearly 10 percent growth in domestic tourism, which has equated to a 23 percent growth in economic impact.
