Amelia Island Tourism - Visitor Count

Tourism to Amelia Island is on the upswing. In fact, the resort and hotel locations have drawn more visitors in the past year than ever before, a new study shows. For the first time, more than 500,000 visitors stayed in resorts and hotels along the Nassau County coast, according to research conducted by Research Data Services Inc., which tracks tourism trends. In total, 504,300 tourists paid for overnight lodging on Amelia Island between Oct. 1, 2012 and Sept. 30, 2013. That’s a 9.7 percent increase over the previous fiscal year, a news release issued Tuesday stated. “Florida tourism as a whole is on the upswing,” said Danny Leeper, chairman of the Amelia Island Tourist Development Council. “But Amelia Island continues to outperform destinations throughout the Southeast thanks in large part to the outstanding efforts of the TDC and its marketing team and tremendous support from local industry partners.” John Holbrook - Realtor Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach & Yulee, Florida Cell: 904-415-0171 Email:
