"Forida welcomed more visitors in the first three months of this year than any quarter in history. A total of 28.4 million visitors came to the state, up 6.2 percent from the record arrivals a year ago."

Up 6.2% over last year's record first quarter?! That's just STUNNING!

Great numbers for my favorite vacation destination. More visitors should translate into more profit. And more profit, hopefully, will turn into additional new experiences.

Up 5% from? Last year? Last quarter? Last week?

I'll assume you meant last year for now.
