Every year as the holidays roll around, people everywhere are still debating where to spend the holidays. Some do book their tickets and lodging well in advance, but it’s safe to say that a large number of travelers don’t even begin to think about where they’d like to go until the days leading up to Christmas break.
It could be that they don’t know when their office will be closed and it could be that plans fell through and now they are left with an empty week on their hands. In any case, another safe assumption would be that Missourians are probably going to fly somewhere warm and inviting. So where are they going this year, except the obvious Capital Resorts Group?
Recent News May Affect Holiday Plans
The recent mass shooting in Las Vegas may hold some amount of concern for anyone who might otherwise have wanted to hit the tables this holiday season. It would be nice to win a bit of extra cash but that mass murder scene still fresh in everyone’s heads is sure to turn a few away from any MGM hotel or casino.
As a matter of fact, the corporation was only just hit with a major lawsuit claiming negligence in one or more areas. Of prime concern would be the lack of accessible exits as well as being understaffed in security. The case has yet to go to court, but the shooting itself is probably going to turn many potential visitors away.
A Look Farther West to Los Angeles Theme Parks
Oddly, the year-round residents of Los Angeles can find the season a bit chilly to be out and about at theme parks, but when you’ve just flown in from the frigid heartland, 70 degrees can feel like a heat wave. Families love this time of year to get away with the kids because mom and dad can get away from shoveling while kids romp on beaches and enjoy rides at the park.
Getting Your Reservations in On Time
If you are one of thousands who wait until the last minute to reserve air flights, you might want to rethink this strategy. Not only are most flights booked up the closer you get to Christmas week, but they will be ultra-expensive as well. Then there are cars to rent on the other end so you can get around in Los Angeles County, which presents another problem if you aren’t careful in your selection of vehicles.
Higher than Usual Volumes of Traffic on the Roads and Highways
As noted by injury trial lawyers in the Greater Los Angeles metro area, families should always reserve safe vehicles, especially when bringing young children along. Check out a vehicle’s LATCH rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) website. You’ll want to ensure that any little people requiring a child safety seat are going to be latched safely with the hardware installed in the vehicle. Too many accidents involving babies in car seats are the result of ineffective hardware and why many renters win lawsuits after an accident.
Heading west this holiday season, Missourians? Remember, safety first!
