State Tourism Secretary Monique Jacobson had some happy news about the tourist industry when she recently testified before the Legislative Finance Committee: More tourists are coming to New Mexico, and they’re spending more money here.

According to a report from the Tourism Department, there were 32 million overnight and day visitors in 2012, a gain of 2.6 percent from the 31.2 million visits in 2011. The previous high was in 2008, with 31.4 million visits. The figures are based upon the New York-based Longwoods International, which studies American leisure and business travel behavior.
