In 2016, VISIT PHILADELPHIA celebrates the 20th anniversary of spreading the word about the legendary Philadelphia region.
The organization that began as a three-year experiment now celebrates 20 years with an annual report that proclaims a record 41 million domestic visitors came to the region in 2015, with 88 percent here for a leisure purpose.
That means more people are visiting Philadelphia than ever before — 2015 is the very first time more than 40 million visited the region in a single year.
For a visual look at our last 20 years, check out this three-minute video that tells the story of Philadelphia, the surrounding counties and the many people who’ve made Philly the must-visit destination it is today.
