SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Tens of thousands descend on San Diego International Comic-Con this week, bringing an economic boom to Airbnb hosts.

According to Airbnb, guests travel to San Diego from 71 countries and every state in the U.S. during the weeks of Pride and Comic-Con.

Comic-Con may draw the masses, but Airbnb hosts say it’s the hospitality that keeps people coming back.
