Airbnb helps Florida tourism boost
Airbnb played a huge part in Florida tourism, helping boost the state's tourism.
Airbnb is a vacation rental website and has nearly 40,000 Florida hosts. They combined for $450 million and almost three million guests this year, the company released.
The top Florida county in 2017 was Miami-Dade with $134.6 million last year. Jacksonville also made the list pulling in $6.1 million, and Saint Johns County made $8.8 million.
Some hosts let people stay at their homes free of charge as a part of the Airbnb Disaster Sponsor Program.
Each host earns an average $6,700, annually according to Florida Politics.
