More Than 100 Million Tourists Visit State In One Year

Illinois has reached a tourism milestone.


State officials say for the first time, more than 100 million visitors came to Illinois in one year.


The state had earlier announced 99 million people had come here from other states in 2012.


On Thursday, they announced another 2 million international visitors were also part of the mix.


The state says all of those tourists spent more than $33 billion last year, and supported 300,000 jobs in the state.
