    The results are in: More and more people are visiting Philadelphia.

    About 41 million people visited the five-county Philadelphia region in 2015, indicating the sixth year in a row for record visitation, according to Visit Philadelphia.

    The 41 million visitation figure is noteworthy because it marks the first time more than 40 million came to the region. It nearly hit the mark last year when 39.7 million visitors came to the region.
