New Jersey tourism revenue rose 3 percent to a record $45.4 billion last year.

Secretary of State Tahesha Way said there also was a 3 percent increase in visitors to the state, at 101 million, the eight consecutive year for a gain in the number of tourists.

New Jersey’s tourism sector generated $38.7 billion of the state’s gross domestic product in 2017, representing 6.7 percent of the entire state economy. Eighteen of 21 counties saw an increase in tourism industry sales.
