West Coast Travel Expected to Increase

The West Coast of the United States is often considered one of the top tourist destinations in the world. While the west coast is a popular travel destination every year, some were concerned that the area would be impacted by the variety of proposed travel bans. However, a recent study has predicted that the 2017 summer travel season could be a record breaking year for tourism and travel in the west coast (http://www.kpbs.org/news/2017/may/26/southern-california-summer-travel-expected-be-robu/).

 

Overall, the Southern California Automobile Club has predicted that travel in the west coast would be up more than three percent compared to prior years. There are several reasons for this. One of the top reasons for travel will be the fact that the overall economy in the United States has continued to improve. Now that the housing market and overall economy seem stable, there are more people that are looking to take trips domestically across the country.

 

Overall, the west coast will have a number of popular destinations for travelers. One of the top locations for travelers will be the cities of San Diego and Las Vegas, which are frequently two of the top domestic travel destinations in this part of the country. Another reason why some believe that the west coast will be busy this year is that we are now one year removed from the centennial anniversary for a number of major national and state parks. It is believed that some tourists took the year off last year to avoid some of the larger crowds.
