More than 62 million visitors came to Orlando last year, making the theme-park mecca the most-visited tourist destination in the U.S., city tourism officials said Thursday.

The 2014 visitor count sets a new milestone for the U.S. tourism industry and was a 5 percent increase from the previous year, according to local tourism agency Visit Orlando.

In a statement, U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow called passing the mark of 60 million visitors a year “a significant achievement for Orlando and the U.S. travel industry.”
