Alaska has set a record for the number of tourists visiting the nation's northernmost state.
The State Division of Economic Development in a release says Alaska had 1.96 million visitors between May 1, 2013, and April 30, 2014.
That beats the previous mark by 5,000 visitors set during the 2007-2008 year.
There were 1.8 million visitors last year.
Commerce Commissioner Susan Bell attributes the increase to increased cruise ship calls in Alaska, and new national and international air service routes.
