Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, May 14, 2022

Florida attracted a record number of tourists during the first three months of 2022, surpassing totals from similar quarters before the COVID-19 pandemic rocked the hospitality and leisure industry. Visit Florida, the state's tourism-marketing agency, posted information Friday showing that 35.982 million people traveled to the state between the start of January and the end of March. With tourism a key engine of the state's economy, that was 39.6 percent higher than during the first quarter of 2021, a time when COVID-19 vaccines were becoming more widely available.

As has been the case since the pandemic started, the vast majority of people traveling to Florida -- 95 percent -- during the first three months of the year came from other states.

Yeah. Ok.

Good luck with that Floriduh!

There are plenty of places to visit in the world. Plenty of places right here in California. Floriduh is not even on my list any more.

You won't ever catch me spending a dime there again.

Everyone enjoys a good Zoo!

Not to mention odd interest in train wrecks.
