Mississippi hosted approximately 23 million total visitors for overnight and day trips in FY 2016, including domestic leisure, business, group and international travel, up 3 percent over FY 2015 and slightly higher than the average 22 million visitors per year during a 20-year period from 1997 to 2016.
