Tourists spent $31 billion in Georgia last year, a 4.8% increase over 2017.
The Peach State welcomed a record of 111.67 million visitors in 2018, supporting 475,000 jobs and generating $66.2 billion in economic impact, up 4.7% compared to the previous year.
"Tourism is a key piece of Georgia's success story," Gov. Brian Kemp said. "Travelers explore our outdoor activities, food, music, arts, culture and historical venues, while supporting small businesses and local communities."
The numbers were reported Wednesday during the annual Georgia Governor's Tourism Conference, held this year in LaGrange, Ga.
