1International travelers to the United States from Canada and Mexico are not included.

2Includes U.S. territories.

KEY: U = data are unavailable.

NOTES: A visitor may visit more than one city. Percent of U.S. total represents the percent of visitors visiting the city. These columns, therefore, do not sum to 100. Some cities are not shown due to low sampling size of overseas visitors. The Office of Travel and Tourism Industries instituted a new policy for data quality in 2006. As a result, data is published for fewer cities in subsequent years.
