The State of Wisconsin has a lot to be proud of.
But we’re not the only ones.
Here are the 10 states where we ranked the best in the US for virtual tourism.
Utah Utah has a huge tourism industry and is known for its unique outdoor festivals.
We ranked it the top state for virtual tour operators, with over 1.2 million visitors annually.
This year, the Utah State Tourism Board is launching an innovative tourism marketing program, aimed at helping Utah attract visitors who have a passion for outdoor activities.
It’s expected to be rolled out to the entire state by early 2018.
California California is the largest state in the union, with a population of over 50 million.
Its economy is booming.
In 2015, it ranked #1 in the nation in gross domestic product.
But, as we pointed out earlier this year, its reputation for low-cost, low-risk and high-quality virtual tours may be a bit of a red flag.
In fact, it was recently the subject of a $1 million lawsuit, which the plaintiffs claimed was motivated by a “culture of bullying and harassment” against online tour operators.
New York New York is a great place to visit for anyone looking for a family-friendly vacation.
The state ranked #3 on our list of top virtual tour destinations, with nearly 5.5 million people visiting the state every year.
New Yorkers have been known to complain about the high cost of lodging and high hotel taxes, and have recently become the focus of a nationwide movement against online tourism.
Hawaii The island state is home to a large and diverse community of tourism-oriented businesses, which are thriving.
In the first year of the state’s online tourism law, Hawaii is leading the country in the number of companies opening their doors to tourists.
However, its recent crackdown on illegal and misleading online tours has brought the island back in the top ten, falling just short of the top five.
Vermont Vermont’s online business boom has helped it land a spot in the Top 10 in virtual tourism’s most recent rankings.
The Vermont Tourism Board and the Vermont Tourism Association (VTA) have a joint initiative called VTAConnect, which has been tracking and helping businesses and entrepreneurs get online.
They’ve been working to make online tourism safer, more reliable and more inclusive, and we’re very proud to see that Vermont continues to be among the nation’s leading states for online tourism and the world’s #1 destination for vacation rentals.
California The Golden State is one of the fastest growing states in the country, with an estimated population of nearly 50 million people.
In 2017, California was ranked #6 on our most popular destinations list, and its population increased by over 9% over last year.
Its tourism industry is booming, and with more than 4 million visitors each year, California is a fantastic place to see.
But in 2018, the state will be launching a comprehensive online tourism program, aiming to attract more visitors who will be more willing to pay the high prices and risks associated with the online tourism industry.
Hawaii Hawaii’s online success has also helped it jump to the #7 spot on our virtual tourism top destinations list.
In 2018, Hawaii ranked #7 on our top destinations for virtual tours, as well as the #6 most visited state in our ranking.
Hawaii is home the Hawaiian Islands, which have been home to some of the world the worlds most unique, beautiful and exotic islands for many centuries.
But with its growing population, and the recent crackdown by the state on illegal online tour businesses, it’s hard to see how the islands can sustain this growth.
California It’s no secret that California is an expensive place to live, and as we noted earlier this month, its tourism industry has seen an unprecedented decline in recent years.
But it’s still the top ranked state for online tour providers, and according to the VTA, Hawaii, is the fastest-growing state in its online tourism ecosystem.
The VTA is working with local governments and private industry to help them make online travel more affordable and sustainable, with Hawaii’s digital tourism program expected to bring an estimated $3 billion in new tax revenue.
Florida Florida’s online industry is also booming, with its population increasing by more than 20% over the last five years.
We have to admit that it was a surprise to see Florida land the #10 spot on this list.
But our experience on the ground in Florida has proven that online tourism is indeed a great way to enjoy Florida’s incredible scenery, with more visitors visiting each year than any other state.
And with its high-profile tourism and cultural offerings, Florida is also a good place to spend your holiday.
New Jersey In 2017 we ranked New Jersey as the second most expensive state to visit in the United States.
But New Jersey’s online businesses are booming, as evidenced by the fact that we ranked
