Think Safety when Traveling to Mexico for the 4th

It's 4th of July weekend and many Americans will be venturing away from home to celebrate.  Those on boarder states like to drive to Mexico where the resorts cater to us and will have celebrations and fireworks.  To quote an old cliche "getting there is half the battle".  There has been a lot of negative activity going on just south of the boarder with gang fighting.  They are fighting with the police, the locals, and the tourists!  As a tourist you have to be aware of your surroundings no matter where you are, but if you are traveling to Mexico right now, you need to be even more aware.  Simple rules such as safety in numbers and staying in the touristy areas can mean the difference between having a fun weekend or ending up in a situation that no one wants to find them self in.  Have fun but don't become a statistic.
