Study shows 'Who visits the Emerald Coast and who doesn't'

The HAAS Center at the University of West Florida sheds some light on who visits the Emerald Coast and who doesn't.
  
Researchers questioned more than 600 tourists between March and May of this year.
More than a third of those visitors came from Florida, Georgia, Louisiana or Texas.
  
Only 3 % came from outside the continental U S
Nearly half were under age 35.
  
And those who rented condos stayed twice as long as those in hotels.
One thing they almost all agreed on,  they will refer the area to family and friends.
