Either hes lying or just plain trolling.
Atlanta expected to welcome 50 million visitors in 2015 - Atlanta Business Chronicle

Maybe Rhode Islanders want to get out their tiny state to see how big Texas really is.

Here's one Texan you don't have to worry about, as I have little real interest and no current plans of visiting your state.

It amuses me that Coloradans have such a beef with us, when most Texans I know barely have that state on their radar.

Not interested in going to California, sorry.

But I like how little ol' Rhode Islanders want to visit Texas.

And Alaskans want to visit Hawaii.

Those "50 million visitors" are conventioneers and business visits. How many leisure travel does Atlanta get

And lol at your list of things to see, I rest my case Atlanta has nothing to see. You think "World of Coca Cola" is interesting?

The only one of those attractions I saw in Atlanta was the MLK Center (was very moving, made my eyes well a bit). None of the others really interested me, and I can definitely give the World of Coca Cola a miss. To me Atlanta was good food, very fun nightlife, an easy place to be sociable (and I went there alone), and pretty decent shopping.

For Texas, I'd say the state most people want to visit is Tamaulipas, whee they have family that they don't get to see very often.

What are the motives of people responding to the poll? All those midwesterners who want to visit Minnesota probably either have family there, or want to avail themselves of the amenities of the large metrlopolis, like shopping or leisure entertainment. How literally do they mean "visit", as opposed to a more permanent move? Do they want to visit a certain person or family, or do they see some kind of touristic attraction?

There is actually no motive polled here, it's just about hotel bookings. My partner goes to Minneapolis all the time, but only for business since his company's other location is there. I imagine, then, if he used this website to book his work stay, he'd be counted as someone not only interested in travel, but interested in traveling to Minneapolis, even though he's only going there for business.
