No impact on Florida Tourism from Oil Spill

May 6th, 2010

The folks at the Florida tourism board want everyone to know that the Deep Water Horizon oil spill has not affected Florida’s waters or beaches. It’s not forecast to for at least the next 72 hours either.

Currently, there are no impacts to Florida’s 2,276 miles of tidal shoreline and 663 miles of beaches. Our shores are clear and open for business.

If you are planning a trip to the Sunshine State and are concerned about any potential impact from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, VISIT FLORIDA encourages you to check with local destinations in order to get the most up-to-date information.

Florida officials have taken the offensive in getting information out due to what they’re calling a “horrible problem with rumor control.” So far, Florida has actually seen a slight uptick in visits from people who have decided to visit a Florida beach instead of one of the other gulf coast states. This trend is expected to continue.
