Record-breaking tourism

Meet Minneapolis has released a new study that revealed more than 33 million people visited the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area in 2017, breaking the 2016 record by 2.5%. In addition to new visitor totals, the study, conducted by DK Shifflet, also showed spending increased to record levels — up 2.6% to $7.8 billion last year compared to $7.6 billion in 2016. These record-breaking numbers help support more than 36,000 Minneapolis jobs.
