Many international markets were prohibited from entry into the USA until November 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the USA.

Domestic visitor numbers surged with over 117 million (a new record) up 55% on 2020 whilst total visitor numbers increased to 122 million.
Top out of state US visitors were from Georgia 9.5%, New York 9.3% and Alabama 6.4%.
