Dallas sees big increase in overseas visitors

Visit Dallas says that the number of international visitors (excluding Canada and Mexico) increased by 33% in 2015 vs 2014. Statistics from the US Commerce Department show that there were 545,000 overseas visitors, up from 409,000 a year earlier. This results in a significant economic impact, as overseas visitors spend approximately $800 per day, four times the amount that Americans spend when visiting the area.
