Palm Beach County joined forces with JetBlue Airways to boost tourism from New Yorkers.

More than a million New York-area tourists visited the county last year, more than any other destination in the U.S., according to the Sun-Sentinel.

The JetBlue Getaways Fall 2013 campaign offers airfare specials and 25 percent off select hotel rates, a Palm Beach County Convention and Visitors Bureau spokesperson told the newspaper. To be eligible, travelers must buy a package sometime in September for a trip occurring before Nov. 20.

Hotels such as Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort and Spa, PGA National Resort and Spa, and Boca Raton Resort are participating.

Nearly 11 percent of domestic visitors in Broward County were from New York, the newspaper said. [Sun Sentinel]Mark Maurer
