U.S. Tourism on the Rise

The U.S. Travel Association recently reported that international travel to the U.S. has risen from 2016. Compared to last year, travel in the month of May increased by 5.5 percent, and February was up 6.6 percent. While travel is projected to grow through November, the Association believes a slowdown will come later in the year—due largely to the political climate and policies related to immigration and international relations.
