Tourism in the U.S. Virgin Islands Grows

The Caribbean Tourism Organization recently held their annual summit to review year-over-year tourism data.  2013 showed growth in the industry, most importantly an increase in visitor spending to more than $28 billion (a 2.3 percent increase).  Last year the U.S. Virgin Islands saw a record-breaking number of overall visitors, while hotels saw room revenues make a sizable jump of 7.5 percent.  More information can be found in the St. Croix Source article: http://stcroixsource.com/content/news/local-news/2014/02/10/progressing-tourism-industry-still-needs-boost
